Hi there,

I was wondering if anyone knows why my BitTorrent DHT won't log in.
It says 'Waiting to log in' then goes '0kbs (Login)' then back to 'Waiting to log in'


Is this problem due to an overload of the BitTorrent server or is it something else?


Thank you in advaned

It's more likely something else.

I wrote a guide on how to fix this years ago.

Actually, router.bittorrent.com/router.utorrent.com (both resolving to 67.215.242.138 and 67.215.242.139) don't respond to DHT queries on port 6881/UDP at this time.
dht.transmissionbt.com is an example for a bootstrap server which currently does respond to queries.

coggy, please.
My troubleshooting guide for this issue covers that scenario already.

This was not a support request from my side, just pointing out that the bootstrap server is not up at the moment.

Harold Feit,

 

I tried to follow your guide but it's too technical for me. I don't know what UDP Traffic is or what PeerGuardian is or where I can find %appdata%\utorrent to delete the files you said....

 

My torrent was working fine last time I used this computer but now I doesn't work. I'm using a new ISP. It's an ethernet connection in a dormitory. 

 

Thanks

You're being blocked by your provider. There's nothing you can do.
