Finally got connectable in last ditch attempt :)

I really love and appreciate the site so it was frustrating to no end that I couldn't contribute some upload. Maybe someone else will come across this post in a search and it will help :-). My normal torrent setup is qBittorrent running with a SOCKS5 proxy from privateinternetaccess. After trying to no end to become connectable with this setup and the how to get connectable guide, I gave up and decided to download a separate client just to use from Tribal Mixes torrents. Lo and behold and not surprisingly this fixed everything and I became connectable again. Seems like an obvious and stupid "fix", but if you don't need to run Tribal Mixes torrents through a VPN/proxy it might be the simplest/least pain in the ass solution to try. It was a real, head smacking, why-didn't-I-try-this-before moment for me :-D .

Love what all you TM staff/volunteers/contributors do, cheers!

Hey, I'm glad it worked for you! I have a similar issue as I am using qBitTorrent as well... But the problem is that currently I have about 700 torrents on qBitTorrent active or on download....


I would really appreciate if would you please recommend what client to use for TribalMixes for me, thanks!
The only person I'm really scared of
is myself..
That bitch is crazy.

I decided to use Deluge as my dedicated TM client. I'm not really an expert in bittorrent clients, but I have heard good or at least not controversial things about Deluge  :-P. I'm using the default connection settings (random port, upnp/nat, etc), only increasing the maximum active torrents, upload speed etc. I think the kicker is really just not being behind a proxy anymore to become connectable in my case. If you have all your TM torrents in a separate folder you can set Deluge to auto add torrents from that folder and it should just pick everything up(700 all at once might be scary). Good luck!

Bear in mind Deluge slows down rapidly after around 100 torrents. rTorrent with ruTorrent gui is far better for seeding a lot at once.

Wow! Thank you. Deluge works for me too! I could not figure out why nothing was working! #blessyou

I really want to contribute to the community, and I used to be good using łtorrent,  but since a few months I am unable to upload.  Do i just need to switch to a different client (Deluge ?)  and this will be resolved ?

Deluge works for me, it should be useful for testing out your issue. Deluge is fairly simple but not everyones favourite, so you may want to try others too.

With pain in my heart i uninstalled łtorrent, i had really liked it for many many years. Deluge installed and worked immediately, i am connectable again.

Well, I am "connectable" and seeding, but have not seen a single MB being uploaded for 4 days.  Still a loose bolt ?

the loose bolt would likely be port forwarding on your router.
I suggest you do some careful checking of the Deluge port number and on the router to make sure they match.
A good test would be to download a new torrent where there are plenty of downloaders. a video might be better.

good luck!
