All downloads remain yellow!

All my downloads/uploads remain yellow (I'm using Azures) which apparently means 'there could be a NAT problem' (which I have no idea what it means!). All other downloads are green. Is it just there are not many sources? Not the end of the world, but just wondered if it impacted the speed in anyway?

that is a problem with nat, means you are not connectable. it means that you have to open all access to your client in your firewall. also that could be solved by restarting azureus a few times... :)

Thanks slash. I only have the 'yellow' issue with Azureus with torrents form this site. In my profile, all my torrents show me as 'not connectable'. However, I have just tried one with BitTornado and that shows as connectable!

great! i really appreciate your effort! but you have to do a few things. first change port in azureus. you have 2010 or something. make it over 40000. and then restart azureus. program is bugging a lot, but this is a good solution. and whenever you add something to seed or leech in azureus check your status page. it will with 99% probability show your new torrent as NOT connectable.
steps :
1. change port in azureus again, keep it high, but put different.
2. close azureus.
3. wait a minute.
4. restart azureus.
5. check status page.
then you might still have your old peers in there still saying unconnectable, but regularly you should have all your torrents connectable after doing 1-5. if old peers are still there - they will leave in a few hours or several minutes. it's just azureus closes connections in a hard way when closing, so some might not close properly and stay for a while.

try this algorithm and please tell me if it works as it did for me. ;-)
