Tracker returns seeders

Post by hanuhugo »

Transmission says the tracker had 2 seeders and 2 leechers, and that it returned a list of 3 peers (so I assume at least one seeder), but on the peers tab of the torrent properties window it shows nothing.

This happens sometimes, only with torrents with few seeders. Why is it? Is it a problem with transmission? Are the seeders not wanting to connect? If the problem is not with transmission where can I find the information that would tell me so?

It's the peers not wanting to connect. Some peers only download and never upload. Some peers won't connect to certain IP-ranges or certain clients.
