Finding Peers error. uTorrent

Post by alodietee on Sun 21 Feb 2016, 10:52

Hi,

My downloads paused halfway with status showing as 'Finding peers'.
It has been like that for a while, I've also tried using solutions provided in other thread but to no avail.

Please help and advise.
Thank you!

Hello and welcome to the forum @alodietee,


Since it's your first post on the forum I figured a little welcome is in place, although you have been a registered member for quite a while now. Very Happy

About the issue, what kind of torrent is that ? If it downloaded for a while, an you cannot find any peers (anymore), then this may be a torrent with not many seeders. Maybe the people who seed(ed) the torrent are not seeding anymore, for some reason. Because they are currently unavailable, don't have much time, or even given up on seeding.

Assuming you correctly configured your torrent client settings (see this post here), you could try downloading at different times for the day. But ultimately, if there aren't any seeders anymore, for whatever reason, there isn't really anything that either we or anybody else can do. You will need to hope that seeders resume the seeding again at some point, or look if there is an alternative torrent for the item(s) that you desire.
