    rtorrent download issues

    rtorrent doesn't seem to like downloading. I constantly get a "can't connect to UDP tracker" error; and, when I'm not, it just doesn't download. Other computers in this house running (for instance) uTorrent download the same file without problems.

    Any suggestions? I find this really annoying

    Code:
    #.rtorrent.rc
    
    # Maximum and minimum number of peers to connect to per torrent.
    #min_peers = 40
    #max_peers = 100
    
    # Same as above but for seeding completed torrents (-1 = same as downloading)
    #min_peers_seed = 10
    #max_peers_seed = 50
    
    # Maximum number of simultanious uploads per torrent.
    #max_uploads = 15
    
    # Global upload and download rate in KiB. "0" for unlimited.
    download_rate = 0
    upload_rate = 50
    
    # Default directory to save the downloaded torrents.
    directory =~/Downloads
    
    # Default session directory. Make sure you don't run multiple instance
    # of rtorrent using the same session directory. Perhaps using a
    # relative path?
    #session = ./session
    
    # Watch a directory for new torrents, and stop those that have been
    # deleted.
    #schedule = watch_directory,5,5,load_start=./watch/*.torrent
    #schedule = untied_directory,5,5,stop_untied=
    
    # Close torrents when diskspace is low.
    #schedule = low_diskspace,5,60,close_low_diskspace=100M
    
    # The ip address reported to the tracker.
    #ip = 127.0.0.1
    #ip = rakshasa.no
    
    # The ip address the listening socket and outgoing connections is
    # bound to.
    #bind = 127.0.0.1
    #bind = rakshasa.no
    
    # Port range to use for listening.
    #port_range = 6890-6999
    
    # Start opening ports at a random position within the port range.
    #port_random = no
    
    # Check hash for finished torrents. Might be usefull until the bug is
    # fixed that causes lack of diskspace not to be properly reported.
    #check_hash = no
    
    # Set whetever the client should try to connect to UDP trackers.
    #use_udp_trackers = yes
    
    # Alternative calls to bind and ip that should handle dynamic ip's.
    #schedule = ip_tick,0,1800,ip=rakshasa
    #schedule = bind_tick,0,1800,bind=rakshasa
    
    # Encryption options, set to none (default) or any combination of the following:
    # allow_incoming, try_outgoing, require, require_RC4, enable_retry, prefer_plaintext
    #
    # The example value allows incoming encrypted connections, starts unencrypted
    # outgoing connections but retries with encryption if they fail, preferring
    # plaintext to RC4 encryption after the encrypted handshake
    #
    # encryption = allow_incoming,enable_retry,prefer_plaintext
    
    # Enable DHT support for trackerless torrents or when all trackers are down.
    # May be set to "disable" (completely disable DHT), "off" (do not start DHT),
    # "auto" (start and stop DHT as needed), or "on" (start DHT immediately).
    # The default is "off". For DHT to work, a session directory must be defined.
    # 
    # dht = auto
    
    # UDP port to use for DHT. 
    # 
    # dht_port = 6881
    
    # Enable peer exchange (for torrents not marked private)
    #
    # peer_exchange = yes
    
    #
    # Do not modify the following parameters unless you know what you're doing.
    #
    
    # Hash read-ahead controls how many MB to request the kernel to read
    # ahead. If the value is too low the disk may not be fully utilized,
    # while if too high the kernel might not be able to keep the read
    # pages in memory thus end up trashing.
    #hash_read_ahead = 10
    
    # Interval between attempts to check the hash, in milliseconds.
    #hash_interval = 100
    
    # Number of attempts to check the hash while using the mincore status,
    # before forcing. Overworked systems might need lower values to get a
    # decent hash checking rate.
    #hash_max_tries = 10

    I also wanted to add that, when I used Crunchbang, I had no problems with rtorrent.

    Are your ports sorted properly on your router's forwarding table?
