    Dude y r u suing such an outdated version of uTorrent??

    Ver 1.8.3 is out since a lota days. Go for it. Just update it from within the app.

    After updating if you face any such problem then the matter will be again looked upon!

    it indicates that a firewall is limiting the connection. Check firewall status to see if it is blocking connections to tpb site , if yes , temporarily allow connections to tpb.

    Looks like KIS is blocking your connection. Add the port which you use for downloading your torrents to exceptions in KIS for both TCP and UDP.

    I actually can't give to the point instruction because I'm not a fond of Firewalls.
    But you need to go to some place like "Rules for Applications" and then create an exception for uTorrent. :(

    Also, do have a look at this: http://support.kaspersky.com/faq/?qid=208279781

    For adding different trackers,
    use http://http://btreannouncer.net/btReannounce.php. Upload the torrent file( It has a 250 kb Limitation :evil:). You then get the other trackers tracking the same torrent. select other trackers ( i, naturally being greedy, will always select all the other trackers available :mrgreen: )Then reannounce the torrent. Then download the reannounced torrent choosing flat or tiered. Or u can just get the trackers from the list.

    One thing... you may check out is that TPB is facing problems. I think they are bringing down the servers one by one!

    @ Raghu, thanx for tat link, trying tat out now..:)

    @ Hell : yup, u are rite dude, they (the law enforcements in Sweden) are (maybe) shutting down servers one at a time so tat the new owner (who even tat retard is..) can start the site afresh as there has been many copyright infringements and various complaints by various music and s/ware companies abt their product being sold freely and they (the s/ware companies) not getting the rewards from it..

    yup, tat is a clever move to slowly paralyse a system to such an extent tat ppl jus get frustrated adn then move outta the system (in this case, my beloved tpb).. :(

    even i guess, tats the only problem tat all tpb users must be facing..coz all the oter trackers are working jus as fine adn smooth..
    ---------

    I will be back in sumtime after trying out sum tricks (whick i knw are jus not gonna work if the server itself is down..lol..)


    Cheers n e-peace...

    hmm..so finally i was able to fix my problem... yup wat hell_storm said was absolutely 100% correct and i second tat.. :)

    the solution: jus remove the tpb tracker and add new trackers (google it plz) ;) also its against forum rules here... :D

    I was about to post the fact that tbp trackers are not the same they used to be...good that you realised it yourself :p

    That beannouncer or whatever is very useful to search for more trackers, especially when your download is 90%+ complete and there aren't many seeds. Naveen_Reloaded pointed it out about 6-7 months back in "Tutorials" and I've been using it since...

    Avoid tbp trackers now, use OpenBitTorrent (Google it, or click here: http://torrentfreak.com/openbittorrent-tracker-muscles-in-on-the-old-pirate-bay-090705/)

    And yeah, I mentioned earlier, I'm not too active on the forum now, just come buy once-twice a week. :|

    Still, cheers :)

    is also jus one amazing site, i guess u too are using some kinda similar methods.. :)
    -------

    yup, tpb jus dies down but still the bit t**rent family and community lives on and it is true, OBT is the new TPB.. :D

    The thing is that some gaming company wanted to buy TPB, but they were unable to pay up on the payment date. So TPB is still in a mess. Their future is really in trouble and need some help from someone to get it running. The first thing and worst thing is they were trying to make it a paid site!

    yup, agreed on tat paid site funda.. infact the new buyers (who ever those retards are).. wanted to implement a monthly, quarterly and yearly paid plans (jua as rapidsh@re follows) for users... fcuk them...

    the tpb index (the whole site, well not whole but most of the site along with its 80K+ torrent files) are available for d/load along with the tpb database for anyone who wants to setup his own tpb..lol...

    beat tat poor swedish officials, previously they had to deal with jus ONE tpb, jus imagine every user hosting his own modified version of tpb database.. lol... yup tats a different issue tat the IP provider will go beserk.. :D
