I have the same problem with the upload...
I have tested the ports and it says they are not forwarded correctly. Is this with the sky router as I don't have any active firewall? How can i change this, cheers.
Checking port 33061 on 220.127.116.11...
Error! Port 33061 does not appear to be open.

Yes, by default the Sky router blocks all incoming unauthorised connections.
You need to set up the services you want and the firewall rules in the router admin pages.

Forgive me for being dumb but if i'm using p2p do i need to open my ports on the router & if so could someone please tell me how to...
I use bit comet so is there anything i need to do regarding ports on there ?
Many thanks again,

Yes you will - I don't know whether Bit Comet is UPnP "aware" but in any case it doesnt work well in this router. Turn UPnP off then set up the correct ports for forwarding.
Here's a link to get you started:
Bit Comet isn't listed but you'll get the idea. Consider using the address reservation feature in the router rather than using a fixed IP - has the same result but it means other devices can continue to use DCHP.
Post back if I've confused you

Many thanks for that Saturday but when i opened the link it looked far too confusing for a pc numpty like me
How do i do this & is it easy enough ?

OK - to make things easier for me, below is a cut and past of a post I made a week or two ago.
You could either start using utorrent (recommended - it's an excellent client) or modify the instructions for Bit Comet ( the port you're interested in is called "listen port" in Bit Comet).
Here's the utorrent instructions including the address reservation bit:
* open up utorrent and make a note of the port used for incoming connections
* open up network connections on your PC
* double click local area network to open it
* click on the support tab
* make a note of the IP address
* log into the router
* select LAN IP setup
* click add under address reservation
* choose your PC (it will have the IP address you noted)
* click add then apply
* select services then add custom service
* type utorrent, select both and put the port you noted in the first box, click apply
* select firewall rules and click add an inbound service
* add utorrent, allow always, the IP address you noted, click apply
* check the enable box, click apply
* go back to utorrent, select options then speed guide
* click test if port is forwarded properly
* check that the message says it is set up properly
Don't forget to turn UPnP off in the router and reboot your PC before firing up Bit Comet/utorrent with the above set up.
Let me know how you get on.

Got to the last bit & it said " Port ***** does not appear to be open."
Thanks again for all your help,

Assuming you followed the instructions my guess is you have the xp firewall running (or something similar - windows defender)?
Turn it off - your router firewall makes it unnecessary. However, a proper software firewall is a good idea because the router firewall (and the xp one) only safeguard you against nasties trying to get in - not nasties on your system trying to "dial home".

I have left Azureus running over night and I downloaded 680MB, but I uploaded 1.4GB (seeds 900, peers 4500)
I am starting to think it may actually be my ZoneAlarm firewall causing me problems.
So I was wondering what firewalls the user who have got bittorrent clients working properly are using?
I am sorry if this post is slightly of topic.
