NEVER use ports 6881-6999 on BT ,they are throttled by most ISP’s use,say(as an example) ports 60123-60129 etc never use the standard ports.


#9

fistoffury1 is correct, don’t use the standard ports. Several sites have already banned the use of the ports on their sites and most ISPs have throttled these ports.

:o @Shaw.ca is still fine with 6881-6969.
