no incoming connections (possibly firewalled)

Asked by cheezwiz789 on 2007-11-04

I get the "no incoming connections (possibly firewalled)" message with the yellow triangle in the lower left corner of ktorrent 2.2.2 in gutsy. I have forwarded the port and udp port numbers on my router...
I do not have firestarter installed.
I do not know what else to try.
TIA for any suggestions.

I had kind of the same problem. Try enabling the UPnP Plugin, that solved it for me. If your router doesn't have UPnP, try to find out if ktorrent is acutally using the ports you gave it in the config dialog with something like

  $ netstat -lnp|grep ktorrent

Using random ports between 40000-50000 and UPnP is enabled from router... still no connection made and the message "Probably firewalled" is still there. Have run netstat and ktorrent uses the port i gave it. Well.... what can i do?

I ran /etc/firestarter -p to stop the firewall, then look to the
configuration of that program.

Hi everybody!
I have the same problem and UPnP dont work for me =(
Googling I read a lot of people having this issue (not firewalled, with seeds, but not downloding)
I tried random port numbers and "netstat -lnp|grep ktorrent" show me the right port that I configured (status: LISTEN)

Please somebody help me to solve my question, thx!
