I would encrypt transmission and enable in the connection tab the last checkbox that says something about discovering local pairs.
I will also give you my personal opinion to install Ubuntu 13.10 and not just stick to Ubuntu 12.10 as you are quite behind and transmission gets updated :) PS: Always get the latest stable release as LTS and previous versions are for Enterprises and not Home users.
I'd say the problem might be with the tracker itself.
Try to download other torrent files for the test that are not on your list and give it 10 minutes [email protected] Alvarado I tunnel all traffic through an Open VPN. If or if I'm not tunneling the traffic doesn't matter on the same machine with windows.
Also I had Transmission and Ktorrent running for a long period of time with no success.
After my upgrade from Ubuntu 12.04 LTS to 12.10, Transmission won't download from an anti-leech tracker (ALT). I had Transmission running for as long as 10 hours and no success.
If I download a torrent via Magnet Link, everything works fine, but if I download from that ALT, it doesn't. My port is open and even if the firewall is disabled, this still happens.
There are 2 options that are very important, DHT and "Use protocol Encryption".
Do not activate to allow unecrypted protocol while you are testing.
Did you try one of the big torrent clients like Vuze or u Torrent?
If that doesn't work, do you have some ports blocked on your ubuntu system that isn't blocked in Windows?
As a result we switched off our forum to investigate. We didn't discover any evidence of unauthorized entry. And as you may have noticed from the v3.2.x series, we now have a healthy amount of devs contributing to it. This release finally fixes an obscure "hit-and-run" bug with trackers.
The tracker will return OK and also return the List of Seeders and Leechers (each greater than 20), but no peers to download from are returned. @Marvin Dickhaus - Ok then we could be having one of this problems: Router or ISP might be limiting you via a port, checking packets, etc..
Try to use a torrent client with advance features like ktorrent and look for the options that are to protect you from speed limiting factors like ISP, Router, Ports, etc..
