Anyone having issues seeding? I have a new computer setup and I can't seed at all, but I download just fine. I disabled PeX and DHT and using a public tracker I can upload. Is there anything I'm missing to be able to seed with Torrent Day?

Need more info are you using a VPN? What torrent client? Who is your ISP? What do you mean by a "public tracker"? TD is a private site with their own tracker.

Yeah sorry. I just wanted to point out that it is working on public trackers, so it seems like a TD issue.

I've used Windows and Linux, PIA and Windscribe, qBittorrent and Transmission. Only other constant is that I'm with Telus.

Not too knowledgeable on this, but I went into cmd and did ping announce.torrentday.com. Is this right? It says 0% loss and 140ms average round trip.

Not sure if this is the place to ask. I've posted on TD as well, but thought I would maybe get some help here too. I'm having trouble setting up everything to even get downloading/seeding and was hoping someone could help. Instead of typing up my long-ass description of the problem, I'll first see if anyone has a similar setup to me? Mac running 10.14.6, Asus router, uTorrent (latest version), and NordVPN. This is all pretty much greek to me, but I'd love to learn more about it and get this up and running - eventually have it auto-populating my Plex server. Anyone out there willing to help?

Can you ping the tracker? I know I keep asking that but it's the first step.

edit- the OS shouldn't make any difference for example I'm using Vuze on both Windows and Linux the setup is essentially the same.

See, I don't even know what that means, but I'm gonna google it and figure it out. I have no less than 10 tabs open trying to figure this #### out...who knew!

In the past, for tracker resolution problems, I found the easier way to deal with it is like this:

1. Go on the website (ie: torrent day) and look at the approved programs list. This includes the version of the program being used. If it's not on the list, it might be blocked by the tracker, so grab the appropriate program.

2. Check the settings against the FAQ. For instance, sometime forced encryption or specific ports are required or the tracker will block activity. (I don't recall TD having this restriction though)

3. Re-add the torrents to the accepted file share program and do file check if necessary. If possible, refresh tracker info. Also go on the website and check for seeders. If there are few seeders, you should consider a different file. If it's a rare file, you might be SOL if the seeders are focusing their resources on other files they are seeding. You might have no choice but wait and hope they focus resources on that file sometime and you can nab it.

4. VPN settings generally shouldn't affect the file share on a file share program on your computer if I am not mistaken. However, it might affect the sharing on a seed box or something like that. (If you don't know what that is, you probably don't have one)

5. If all of the above is looking good and you still cannot share, the next level culprits are your network setups (ie: Router/modem blocking, QOS etc.) or the ISP. Assuming you're in Canada, it's likely not the ISP settings and your network settings/set up if you make it to step 5 with no transfers.

In MacOS search for network utility one of the options is ping, type in the tracker name you see in your torrent client.

Thanks so much for this. I'm going to give it another try this evening and over the weekend. I don't suppose you happen to know if it matters if I set everything up with the VPN running or not? Like, can I turn it off, try and get everything up and running, then just switch it back on and do my thing? Or should I be trying to get it all going with the VPN active?

VPN shouldn't affect anything so you should be able to try and work on that stuff with the VPN active. The only difference is that with VPN on it's going to be a little bit slower. If it's not working with VPN on, I don't think it will work with VPN off. Worth trying though if you're truly stumped, but I don't think it would change anything on/off.

Last I checked Utorrent on the Mac cannot bind the connection to the VPN, meaning if the VPN connection drops your torrents will stay connected. This largely defeats the purpose of having a VPN. Azureus Vuze does support doing this see here.
