I'm trying to set up rtorrent on my CentOS 5.6 server, and it currently cannot connect to any trackers.
rtorrent-0.8.6. I also compiled
libcurl 7.21.7 with
c-ares 1.7.5 because the in-repo version of curl didn't have c-ares so it couldn't resolve tracker host names (not asynchronously at least).
I forwarded ports 6890-6999 through iptables using the following in
-A INPUT -p tcp --destination-port 6890:6999 -j ACCEPT -A OUTPUT -p tcp --source-port 6890:6999 -j ACCEPT
But even if I stop iptables it doesn't work.
When I start rtorrent it will say something like
Connecting to http://torrent.fedoraproject.org:6969/announce, then quickly followed by
Couldn't connect to server.
I know there isn't much information about why it can't connect, but is there a way I can find out?
Edit I tried rtorrent on my local machine running Fedora 15 using all in-repo software and I have the same problem. But ktorrent runs on Fedora 15 with no problem.
