Having followed the advice given in the documentation, I ensured that the port that Nicotine+ was operating on is open, and I tested it with several port-testing utilities, the result being that Nicotine+ should be able to work fine.
However I am simply unable to download from a large number of users. No error at all is reported, I simply click "download" on a file in the Downloads tab and nothing happens. With some users it works, but often I have to try 6 or 7 different users before finding one that I can download from.
I have uPnP disabled due to the fact that Nicotine+ complains about an "unknown exception" when loading uPnP. I am under the impression that I don't need uPnP to use the software.
The problem happens on both the version run from this current git repo, and on the Debian stable install.
I'm not sure if this counts as a bug or not, as this behaviour should be what happens when my ports are incorrectly configured. However there seems to be no such problem.
The text was updated successfully, but these errors were encountered:
I would recommend avoiding UPnP for the time being because it seems some bugs are still lurking around even if I've tried to fix some of them.
If you have "I can accept direct connections" enable you must also redirect the port Nicotine+ is listening on (usually 2234) on your router to your pc (port redirection also called port mapping). Something like your_public_ip:2234 => your_internal_pc_ip:2234.
Also there are some bugs i'll try to track down related to transfers that most likely were introduced a few years back just after the 1.2.16 release. I'll be on vacation next week and would have time to look into it.
