    Transmission not connected to tracker/not downloading

    Hi,

    I have a Xubuntu 12.04 installation and tried to download some torrents by transmission but it is not downloading. It says 'could not connect to the tracker. I have checked whether the port is open, it is open. I have ufw disabled and nothing configured in iptables. I also upgraded the transmission but no luck. I have Ubuntu 12.04 which works fine, downloads torrents.

    What might be wrong? what else can i do for troubleshooting? I checked other forums and threads in this forum. Could there be a network problem, or router issue?

    Thanks in advance

    What version of Transmission are you using?

    The relevant package names are transmission-common and transmission-gtk.

    I was using the version that's in the standard repositories for Ubuntu 12.04, but ran into a couple of bugs. I found a PPA with a newer version that fixed the bugs: https://launchpad.net/~transmissionbt/+archive/ppa

    This may not solve your problem, but it could be worth trying.

    I asked Transmission to use a random port everytime it starts, so it is able to download now.
