Hi all - it's great to see the interest in this. I have come to the conclusion that it is my ISP (orange.fr) that is preventing connection of peers and failure of the DHT announcement. Is have switch to an encrypted system that uses a phantom ISP in Australia to get things rolling again. - So far so good.
Hi - I am the same - my system shows "connecting to peers" and the DMT shows "waiting for announcement" - but torrents will nor start. I am wondering whether this is an issue world wide or is it limited to certain countries - I was ok from Australia last week but now in France - nothing.
