DHT Problem

by Guest on 2014/06/14 02:09:47 AM    
I have been using Tixati for around 4 months, and I absolutely love it. I have downloaded countless items without any problems. I live in China and use a VPN. I have been using Tixati without problems with the VPN both on and off. Within the last couple of days I have been unable resume my previous downloads, and new magnet links stick on "Fetching meta-info".

At first the Incoming Connections were "unconfirmed". I have finally been able to have this changed to "Listeing/OK". However, the DHT tab says "Started - waiting for initial nodes from file transfer peers"

Here is the Home tab log:

Any help or suggestion would be greatly appreciated. I have been to canyouseeme dot org and the port I am using (80) is not being blocked. Thanks in advance,

Have you always used port 80? Try to set Tixati to use a different port but not one of these on the list here. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_TCP_and_UDP_port_numbers.  Ideally you want to use a port that is not being used by any other program. If memory serves me right port 80 will be used for browser traffic which is why it is open.

I also had problems using upnp so I manually configured my router to forward my tixati port to my computer local IP. Then opened it up in my firewall for Tixati to use. I am pretty sure that my problems were router problems and like you they just started one day.

Your problem occurs with or without VPN?

Thanks for the response.

I have these problems both with and without my VPN opened.

So I took your suggestion and switch the port to something not on that list. Here is the Home Log:

"1:22:19 PM]  DHT: starting

[1:23:01 PM]  UPNP router UDP port forwarding: port forwarding succeeded on 192.168.0.1"

Now my Incoming Connections is listed as "Unconfirmed".

I am at work right now, and I have zero access to the router or its settings. I will have to look tonight if I can set up my router at home to port forward. The only problem is that my router is in Chinese... I'll have to investigate.

Thanks for your input,

Your first and second logs are:

DHT: starting
DHT: attempting to listen for UDP on 0.0.0.0:
DHT: attempting to listen for UDP on :::
DHT: UDP port bound OK. Startup complete.

This seems like a success in terms of DHT.

In your first log Tixati was unable to find a UPnP router

UPNP router TCP port forwarding: scanning for routers to forward port 80...
UPNP router TCP port forwarding: no routers responded, will retry every 5 minutes
UPNP router UDP port forwarding: scanning for routers to forward port 80...
UPNP router UDP port forwarding: no routers responded, will retry every 5 minutes

and in the 2nd log it was able to.

UPNP router TCP port forwarding: scanning for routers to forward port 37373...
UPNP router TCP port forwarding: port forwarding succeeded on 192.168.0.1
UPNP router UDP port forwarding: scanning for routers to forward port 37373...
UPNP router UDP port forwarding: port forwarding succeeded on 192.168.0.1

I would still try to get the port forwarded through. If that doesn't work see if any other client works. It could be bigger problem higher up. This link might help http://support.tixati.com/Optimizing_Tixati#Step_3.  This thread might also be related http://forum.tixati.com/support/509/.

My DHT logs:

DHT: starting
DHT: attempting to listen for UDP on 0.0.0.0:
DHT: UDP port bound OK.  Startup complete.

Lets get one more piece of info. On your home page you will find a box in the lower right called incoming connections.
Is received at 0? watch it for a bit does it change? After an hour? How about placed what is it doing? If both of those are low then the next question means nothing. What is negotiating doing?

But in the new version (2.81) you can not change or choose port..?
by Guest on 2021/03/25 08:15:40 PM    
you can change your port. go to settings->networks->incoming ports
