Hi anas, have a read through this:

Standard Disclaimer: I hope your downloading only Legal Torrents, otherwise we can't help you.

Ok now thats out the way, I'll answer your question.

First: Have you got Utorrent set up correctly? The "Setup guide" seems to always set the upload speed too high. Click Options>Preferences and go to "Bandwidth" you need to set your "upload speed" to: (max upload speed)-10%. if you dont know your upload speed go to Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test and then times the upload result by 1000, then divide by 8 to get your upload speed in KB.

I would also recommend turning "net_calc overhead" to true (in Advanced under Preferences). otherwise overheads cut into the "breathing room" that it needs. (Technical explanation, it needs a little upload to download, so that it can confirm its got the packets)

There seems to be a bug with Utorrent 2.0.2 where if you have your download speed set to "unlimited" then it doesn't download properly. this seems to be most prevalant when net_calc overhead is set to true To fix it do the following:

Under "Bandwidth" set the maximum download speed to the most you can get, (again using the same formula as upload)

Next: check whether your ISP "traffic shapes" this means that P2p connections get low priority, so you will see slower speeds at peak times.

Lastly: It may just be a slow swarm, if you have everything set up correctly (as outlined above) and your ISP isnt shaping you, then try downloading something like Ubuntu via torrent: Ubuntu homepage | Ubuntu

If Ubuntu doesnt max your download within 15 minutes, and you are CERTAIN that your not being Traffic shaped, then you have a problem. Post back and we'll try and help you further.

Hope it helps.

I have seen this occasionally, the most common causes, for me at least are:

A software Firewall rejecting the connection, do you run a firewall beyond the standard Windows one?

The server being down, Utorrents servers are terrible, they get overloaded if you even look at them too hard, try using a different server, however I think it's unlikely to be this one, as I just tested the Paris server on my own machine, and it worked fine.

Lastly, are you running any IP blocking software, such as Peerblock? Often they mistake the Utorrent server for a Anti p2p organisation, Peerblock certainly does.

Hi anas88

If you have not already done so it will help your connection if you port forward your router, this site may be of use to you > Port Forwarding Guides Listed by Manufacturer and Model - PortForward.com

This is causing the server problems, I would almost guarantee it, undo what you have done with it, (or better yet, System Restore) then follow my guide above
