Bittorrent Errors

Here is a list of common bittorrent erros which occur. Not all are related to your computer. Here is a list of common errors and in some cases there is also a solution as to what you can do to solve this problem.

Bad Data from Tracker or Bad Tracker Data

This means the tracker is having problems. Either it is down and returning an error page, or is overloaded with requests. Simply leave your client on for a while and see if the problem resolves itself.

'Connection refused : ......' or

This means that you cannot for whatever reason establish a connection to the Tracker needed to download a file.
This is commonly caused by firewalls/routers, trackers/servers going down or being too busy, or your net connection going down.
You may also be banned from using this tracker either for leeching from it.
More often than not with this error you can simply leave your client window open and it will sort itself out, or you can close the BT Client and try resuming the torrent.
If the problem is persisting make sure the Tracker you wish to connect is operating, and make sure your firewall/router is not interfering with TCP traffic on the BT ports.
If after a few days your download still does not start or continue and you have correctly configured your environment, then you can safely assume the tracker is gone.

Connecting to peers
Maybe there are no users to connect to. Leave your torrent open and maybe the BT Client will connect (it may take some time).

Windows cannot find... "C://Documents and Settings{YOUR NAME HERE}Local SettingsTemporary Internet FilesContent.ie5.....
It is an error that can sometimes occur in Windows XP; either download the torrent to your Hard Drive and launch it from there.... or clear out your temp internet files. This will generally resolve the issue (XP starts compressing temporary internet files once it reaches certain number of files or 1/2 the allotted drive space and that's what causes the error).

Just let the torrent run in your client and the client will keep checking the tracker and should resume eventually.

No space left on device
The client allocates the space needed to store the file on your Hard Drive, you get this error when you don't have enough space on your hard drive for your BT Client to fully allocate the file.

Problem getting response info - {errno2} No such file or directory
The directory of C:// is probably causing your problems; it's most likely a temporary directory that Internet Explorer uses when you left click on the torrent file. Try right clicking on the .torrent and selecting "save target as" . Then save the .torrent file to a directory of your choice. Keep them all in a folder exclusively for your torrents and your life will be much easier. Then when you start your BT Client and you're ready to download the files you can navigate to that folder and double click on the .torrent file to start downloading in your BT Client.

(IOError - {Errno13} Permission denied)
Sometimes your BT Client is still running in the background from your last session, and if you start more than one instance of the client, it will try to download the same torrent twice, and it will give you permission denied, start-up Task Manager and close down all instances of your BT Client. Start your BT Client again and everything should work fine. Restarting your pc will also fix this.

Rejected by tracker - Your IP is not registered to use this tracker for this file
You have to register with the site that hosts this torrent and be logged in when you first start the torrent downloading.

Problem connecting to tracker: HTTP Error -1
Leave your torrent running in your client. The client will keep checking the tracker and it should resume eventually.

Problem connecting to tracker -
A lot of routes in your routing table (due to a misconfigured router, or misconfigured default route)
Or lots of stale connections in your connection table
Or a lot of data that is pending for sending or receiving on a current connection(s), which can't be sent or received for some reason (destination System dead or unreachable, for example).
Or opening too many sockets at the same time.
Or maybe you don't have enough free space on your hard drive.

Problem connecting with tracker - (10054,'Connection reset by peer')
This occurs when an established connection is shut down for some reason by the remote computer, just ignore it.

Problem connecting to tracker. HTTP error 503: service unavailable
Have you tried using TorrentSpy to check on the tracker's status? Maybe the tracker is down for a rest or something bad happened

Piece XXX failed hash check, re-downloading it
BT Client downloaded a wrong packet, so it's re-downloading it, just ignore this message, unless it happens repeatedly.

Upload failed: The tracker that hosted your torrent is listed as 'dead'!
Possibly the tracker is all full.

That error is pretty straight forward. The tracker you are trying to use is currently not available. Just because you used it before doesn't mean it's working today. It's currently down for whatever reason. To solve this issue you either have to find a different tracker, one that is up right now. Or just wait and see if that one comes back.

"Error on Line xx" or "Cannot execute free Script"
Do you have any ad blocking software running? Some firewalls like NIS and Agnitum Outpost have such options built into them.

There is also at least one pop-up-stopper that now supports ad blocking.

If you have any of those turn them off and try again.

You also might like to check your security settings in your Browser. Perhaps you have very aggressive security and privacy settings that are causing it?

Missing/Can't See Categories
Disable your ad-blocking, it may be part of your firewall.

Problem connecting to tracker - (7, 'getaddrinfo failed')

That means that your client can't get a connection to the Tracker's IP address.
Here are some possible reasons:

1. Your client can't get through your firewall.
2. Your ISP's DNS server is down.
3. Your ISP's DNS server can't resolve the tracker's domain to an IP address.
4. The Tracker is down and isn't responding.

Problem connecting to tracker -
Just let the torrent run in your client and the client will keep checking the tracker and should resume eventually.

Problem connecting with tracker - (10060, 'Operation timed out')
That error means that the server is down or too busy to process your request.
Just keep trying - leave your torrent open, if it doesn't see some action in about 20 -30 minutes try again later, the tracker may just busy that's all.

10047, address family not supported
This error is generated only because of incorrect network settings in Windows.

Make sure you:

1. Have "Client for Microsoft Networks"
2. Install the Microsoft version of "TCP/IP"
3. You're logged in and have a current IP address. You can use "winipcfg" or 'ipconfig/all' from the Command Prompt.
4. Test other network applications for proper operability

If you get the error on a non-windows system, I have no ideas at all.

Page cannot be displayed/found

The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later - Error 404.
I think it's just that some of the mirrors come on line and others go of, I use goggle to find other mirrors, sometimes it works some not, it isn't your firewall.
The site might just be too busy, try it again in a few minutes.
Also, I would suggest right clicking the file and saving it to you hard rive for easy access in the future.
It might be that the server the .torrent file is stored on is busy.
If it's a file that is being downloaded by many people then the chances are it's a popular one and many people are also trying to get the .torrent file itself too. Try right clicking on the .torrent and selecting "save as" then read the error message, it probably says something along the lines of "a connection with the server could not be established, please try again later".
Keep refreshing the page and try and get a different mirror.
you can try the refresh again, but it's likely the site has too many people accessing it, try again periodically.
It's not a huge issue because chances are it works one at least one of the mirrors and the others will be fixed eventually.
You just have to refresh a few times to try and find a working one.

No known mirrors
That normally means the mirror hosting the tracker is too busy or is having problems.

"rejected by tracker - Port xxxx is blacklisted"
Your client is reporting to the tracker that it uses one of the default BT ports (6881-6889) or any other common p2p port for incoming connections. The tracker in question does not allow clients to use ports commonly associated with p2p protocols. The reason for this is that it is a common practice for ISPs to throttle those ports (that is, limit the bandwidth, hence the speed).

In order to use the tracker you must configure your client to use any port range that does not contain those ports (a range within the region 49152 through 65535 is preferable, cf. IANA).

"Unrecognized Host", "Invalid passkey", "missing passkey", or "Unregistered Torrent" error?

# Some torrent sites have started individually keying torrents to individual members. There is nothing you can do about it, apart from registering with the tracker's site and getting your own torrent from them.
# If this is your first torrent, that MAY mean you have not configured your internet/proxy or BT Client settings correctly. Try another torrent that other users have been able to download successfully (check for recent positive comments)

Requested download is not authorized for use with this tracker
# Usually that means the torrent has been removed from the tracker (or was never placed there properly).
# If this is your first torrent, that MAY mean you have not configured your internet/proxy or BT Client settings correctly. Try another torrent that other users have been able to download successfully (check for recent positive comments)
