Pumpedd:

 

Thanks to a poster it seems resolved by swapping to a different client.

 

 

Was changing client or changing port that caused the issue to go away? Is it using UPNP - in which case changing the client likely changed the port and the router configuration?

I changed client...but still no idea why my previous client just stopped working as my I hadnt changed anything on my comp. Don't want to dwell too much on it as I know it is probably against FUG to discuss it.

@Pumpedd UPnP or a port forward is often required from a torrent client to download my Linux ISO's at full speed. For a good torrent client I recommend either Transmission (cross-platform), Deluge or qBittorrent. Without the port forward in place (either via automatically forwarding via UPnP or manually by a port forward) you won't get the best speeds as peers are unable to connect to you.

It was qBittorent that has ceased working. I switched to Deluge yesterday and that is working fine. I have been using qBittorent for several years without incident, thats why I suspect something has changed at VF's end, as I haven't even installed any new software etc this last week.

Also note that some firewalls have different settings, e.g. my Synology router has an option to DENY traffic if a firewall rule doesn't exist - even if port forward is there. This means if DENY is set as default then even UPnP will be blocked unless a firewall rules is explicitly added (obviously traffic will flow if the firewall setting is to ALLOW traffic if port forward exist but no firewall rule required). One is a strictly secure the other is relaxed... Hence my question about the router configuration and UPnP - the software settings may have changed and the router got confused...
