I'm an uploader on a couple different private tracker sites and i have never had an issue with being connectable for seeding. About a week ago i am appearing unconnectable on those sites, so i went and forwarded ports for utorrent through both my router and firewall, but still appearing as unconnectable. I am able to download with no problems, but it takes forever for me to completely seed something that i uploaded. When i created the rule for utorrent through my firewall i just made it for incoming. Do i need to make another rule for utorrent for outgoing???

Ports need to be open both ways for optimal transfers. DO NOT use default port number, there known to attract all sorts of unwanted traffic. It could also be your isp throttling or limiting bandwidth. If your constantly seeding the isp could flag your account and monitor the TCP/udp packets. You can look up the glasnost application and find out.

Try the portforward.com Configuration page. Enter your router make and model, and the ports you have chosen. It will walk you through the steps. Don't forget you need to open the ports in Windows Firewall too. If that still doesn't work Use the Glasnost tool to test your ISP
