Re: Transmission Fails to Download Files in Torrent
Is your modem a modem only, or a modem/router. In other words do you get a public IP directly on eth0?
If your modem is a router (or using a router) you either need UPnP enabled on router and torrent program, or forward port 51413 to LAN IP of Linux. I have been using Transmission with port forwarding (static LAN IP) on my DSL gateway for some time, downloading and serving various Ubuntu and Raspberry Pi releases.
