First forward ports at your router between 6881-6999 TCP and 90, 6666, 6969 TCP ports. Start downloading a torrent and do what I wrote below.

Click to Prefs

Do Port Range from 6881 to 6999 and unsellect randomize box. Change UPnP Port Forwarding to disabled.

After doing those things above, click to Save button. Close the BitTornado and start it again. Wait 4 minutes. Yeees, now it is Green

If you couldn't do what I said call me at MSN. pichoscosama@hotmail.com

Umm, why ports 90, 6666, 6969 if you're only using 6881-6999 in bittornado? :wink:

The only ports you need to set up forwarding on and open on firewalls are the ports that bittornado actually uses. For example, if you set up BT to use ports #12345 - #12350 then they are the only ones that need to be forwarded. Opening up other ports is a pointless security risk.

yea...yo should only set the port range = max running torrents (...like you often run 3 torrents at the same time then set port range like...21111 - 21113)

 Post subject: worked!

I had been playing with the yellow light for almost a week now. My frustration almost just made me be happy with the yellow light.

This is what finally worked for me.

NOTE: Be sure to completely stop and close the torrent you were downloading while makeing these changes. Then restart the same torrent.

The difference between green light and yellow light is totally night and day. Even the number of people you are linked with changes, and the total number of distributed copies changes!

Seriously, if you were like me and about to give up, keep trying. It is worth it.

Can you post a visual guide to "Reduce your upload to 90% of your total upstream bandwidth."?

This totally worked for me as well. I only forwarded the 6881-6889 ports on my firewall though.

I was maxing out at 30 kB/sec download, now I am getting around 140kB/sec.

Thanks!

That was amazing, this worked for me as well and using the port forwarding help guide made it that much easier, if you're having trouble forwarding your router ports go back to the thread page and look for the port forwarding guide topic.

I agree with SumYumyGuy:

Well ... that went down in flames. I did everything that the poster said and I still have a yellow light and downloads in the 2-5k range.

Were we also supposed to set the Default Max Download Rate at 30 like in the photo?

I have ports 6881-6889, 6666, 6969 and 90 open. The only firewall I have is the XP default and it is turned on.

Any suggestions?

By the by. I only have 6881-6889 open as I will never use anything higher. I usually have a maximum of two torrents downloading and I try to always have two seeding.
