I just set up Ubuntu and I am having lots of trouble getting torrents working. I used to use Linux a lot, but have not for years, so I'm pretty new at this again.
I have ports forwarded on my router for UDP and torrents. I have checked them and they are open on the router, and using netstat I can see they are open/listening on the computer.
sudo iptables --flush and
sudo ufw --disable to make sure that it was not a firewall causing the problems.
When I use http://checkmytorrentip.com/ It says UDP is disabled (it was working fine on my windows install). I can't connect to any trackers that are not HTTP.
I have tried qbittorrent, deluge, and transmission. None of them will connect to trackers using UDP.
I usually use a proxy (btguard) but I have that disabled while I just try an get the connection working period.
Any ideas as to what I am doing wrong?
