Im hijacking this thread instead of creating a new one.

Background:

I have port forwarding enabled in my router to ports (UDP/TCP) 6881-6999. I have IP filtering (outbound/inbound firewall) turned OFF.

Now, on my windows laptop running Azureus I get very good download speeds and running a netstat shows many inbound connections on port 6881 as well as many outbound connections to various ports including a bunch of 6881. So here I have no problem connecting to other peers and they have no problem connecting to me.

But, switch the forwarding to my linuxbox and start a btdownloadcurses I ONLY get incoming connections on port 6881. I get NO outgoing connections! After a while I can have as many as 100 incoming connectinos on port 6881. I also notice that I never seem to connect to a tracker (on http port). I stays in SYN_SENT state and then disappears (but I think Azureus reported the tracker as down as well though but that didnt stop me from getting connections there).

Notice I have tried both the stable (4.0.2) and the testing (4.2) version of bittorrent which supports "trackerless client" with no avail. Im getting really tired of this now after struggling many many hours. Anyone got a tip on what to try next? Please..
