Thread: frostwire works but ktorrent doesn't

    Default frostwire works but ktorrent doesn't

    I have been trying to get ktorrent to work for several days now. First of all, I am running wireless isp without a router. and i'm not sure about all that I have read about port forwarding. It should not be an issue for me as I have no router. ?? At any rate, I have installed frostwire, and I know the system is different but it seems to work. However Ktorrent will start and try to download for a few seconds and then stalls. It is not the torrent as I have tried several of them, all with good seed numbers. Any ideas??

    just for fun, see what happens if you go to
    http://software.opensuse.org/112/en and select to down load one of the
    Live CDs via the BitTorrent download method, if the bits pile up on
    your drive for more than "a few seconds" you don't have to go the
    whole way..

    you should be able to do that with the *default* install firewall
    operating...

    if you need to post again i'd suggest you answer a few questions which
    might make it easier to help:

    -what operating system/version?

    -what desktop environment?

    -in what ways have you changed the default installed firewall?

    -did ktorrent used to work, but stopped?

    -did wireless networking 'just work' or ??

    -when you say "wireless isp without a router" what does that
    mean...does it mean you catch wifi out the air with no hardware
    provided by your ISP that you have to plug into anything? or ??

    -who owns/operates the wifi transmitter? that is, are you like on a
    school campus, a company's, community's or city's wifi net..

    -is frostwire running ok in the same system/desktop? is there a reason
    you prefer ktorrent? (i mean, if it works use it, right?)

    -if you launch ktorrent in a terminal do you get any errors?

    -what is the output of ktorrent -v
