There is an active, and passive mode when we talk about torrent. Passive, is when you can't connect to the peers actively. Active is when your ports are forwarder, and others can connect to you.
What I did so far, is installed a Debian on my server. Then I added
GatewayPorts yes into my sshd_config file. After that, in PuTTY, I set up the following configuration:
- Remote ports do the same
- Local ports accept connections from other hosts
Then I added a new forward like:
4D8080 (IPv4, Dynamic, at my PC's port 8080).
After this, I set my uTorrent to use SOCKS5 proxy for every possible connection, at
8080. But, my client will show the red sign at the bottom-right part.
Is there a solution to this? (Something is surely not right, I get 0 DHT nodes too.)
