Bittorrent Error Messages

 


Bad Data from Tracker

Normally caused by an overloaded Tracker, which is trying to deal with too much information at once. This is normal, especially on popular torrent sites when the community is downloading torrents in mass. Just click away this error, and eventually the file will start.

 

 

Connecting to peers

Maybe there are no users to connect to. Leave your torrent open and maybe the bit torrent client will connect (it may take some time).

 



Windows cannot find "c:documents and settingsownerlocal settingstemporery internet filescontent.ie5.....

Download the torrent to your Hard Drive and launch it from there. Right click on the link and save the torrent to your hard-drive, and then open the torrent that is in your hard-drive by double clicking on it.

 

No space left on device

The client allocates the space needed to store the file on your Hard Drive, you get this error when you don't have enough space on your hard drive for bit torrent to fully allocate the file.

 

 

Urlopen error - (7, 'getaddrinfo failed')

This means that the tracker is overloaded, just keep the torrent window open and wait.

 

 

Temporary internet files content 1.5 xxx don't exist

It is an XP thing; either download the torrent to your Hard Drive and launch it from there... or clear out your temp internet files that will generally resolve the issue.
(XP compresses temp internet files once it reaches certain # of files or 1/2 allotted space that's what causes the error)
Just let the torrent run in your client and the client will keep checking the tracker and should resume eventually.

 

 

Problem getting response info - [errno2] No such file or directory

The directory of C: /// is probably causing your problems; it's most likely a temporary directory that Internet Explorer uses when you left click on the torrent file. Try right clicking on the .torrent and selecting "save target as" . Then save the .torrent file to a directory on your C drive. Keep them all in a folder specifically designed for use with Bit Torrent and your life will be much easier. Then when you start your client and you're ready to download the files you can navigate to that special folder and not have to keep searching for where Windows plonks the torrents each time. Clear your temp internet files then make a dedicated folder for your torrents and try again. Put the dl in the folder you made.

 

 

(IOError - [Errno13] Permission denied)

Sometime bit torrent still runs in the background, and if you start more than one GUI (the same torrent) it will give you permission denied, go to Task manager and close down all bt-gui processes.

 

 

Rejected by tracker - Your IP is not registered to use this tracker for this file

Probably the tracker is overloaded, so the owner decide to only allow certain IPs to use the tracker

 

 

Problem connecting to tracker: HTTP Error -1

Leave your torrent running in your client. The client will keep checking the tracker and it should resume eventually.

 

 

Problem connecting with tracker - (10060, 'Operation timed out')

That error means that the server/tracker is down or too busy to process your request.  Just keep trying - leave it open.

 

 

<Urlopen error (10061, 'Connection refused")>

Just leave your torrent running in your client. The client will keep trying to connect to the tracker. When you're already downloading, just ignore it.

 

 

Problem connecting to tracker - <urlopen error (10055, 'No buffer space available')>

A lot of routes in your routing table (due to a misconfigured router, or misconfigured default route)

Lots of stale connections in your connection table

Or a lot of data that is pending for sending or receiving on a current connection(s), which can't be sent or received for some reason (destination system dead or unreachable, for example).

Opening too many sockets at the same time.

Probably don't have enough free space on your hard drive.

 

 

Problem connecting with tracker - (10054,'Connection reset by peer')

This occurs when an established connection is shut down for some reason by the remote computer, just ignore it.

 

 

Problem connecting to tracker. HTTP error 503: service unavailable

Have you tried using torrent spy to check on the tracker's status? Maybe the tracker is down for a rest or something bad happened

 

 

Piece XXX failed hash check, re-downloading it

Bittorrent downloaded a wrong packet, so it's redownloading it, just ignore it.

 

 

Page cannot be displayed/found
The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later
404

I think it's just that some of the mirrors come on line and others go of, I use goggle to find other mirrors, sometimes it works some not, it isn't your firewall.
The site might just be too busy, try it again in a few minutes. Also, I would suggest right clicking the file and saving it to you hard rive for easy access in the future.
It might be that the server the .torrent file is stored on is busy. If it's a file that is being downloaded by many people then the chances are it's a popular one and many people are also trying to get the .torrent file itself too. Try right clicking on the .torrent and selecting "save as" then read the error message, it probably says something along the lines of "a connection with the server could not be established, please try again later".
Keep refreshing the page and try and get a different mirror
you can try the refresh again, but it's likely the site has too many people accessing it, try again periodically.
It's not a huge issue because chances are it works one at least one of the mirrors and the others will be fixed eventually. You just have to refresh a few times to try and find a working one.

 

 

No known mirrors

That normally means the mirror hosting the tracker is too busy or is having problems.

 

 

Upload failed: The tracker that hosted your torrent is listed as 'dead'!

It wouldn't surprise me if they were all full.
If your site had to temporarily shut down the trackers, everyone has gone to the other trackers for now.

 

 

MsgCode: xxxxxxxxx ::add_torrent::dead_tracker::395

That errors pretty straight forward. The tracker you are trying to use is currently not available. Just because you used it before doesn't mean it's working today. It's currently down for whatever reason; I don't know why it's down.
To solve this issue you either have to find a different tracker, one that is up right now. Or just wait and see if that one comes back.

 

 

\"Error on Line 18\"
\"Cannot execute free Script\"

Do you have any ad blocking software running? Some firewalls like NIS and Agnitum Outpost have such options built into them. There is also at least one pop-up-stopper that now supports ad blocking. If you have any of those turn them off and try again. You also might like to check your security settings in your Browser. Perhaps you have very aggressive security and privacy settings that are causing it?

 

 

Missing/Can't See Categories

Disable your ad-blocking, it may be part of your firewall.

 

 

'Connecting To Peers'

Maybe there are no users to connect to.
but leave your torrent open and maybe he will connect.

Just leave the window open and it should connect at some point, (it may take few hours)

 

 

Windows Cannot Find \"c:documents and settingsownerlocal settingstemporery internet filescontent.ie5.....

Download the torrent to your Hard Drive and launch it from there.

 

 

No space left on device

The client allocates the space needed to store the file on your HD, and it sounds to me like your getting low on space.

 

 

Problem connecting to tracker - (7, 'getaddrinfo failed')

It means their tracker is overworked
nothing ya can do about it... leave it run... it should start working sooner or later.

 

 

Temporary Internet Files Content 1.5 xxx don't exist

It is an XP thing it happens to me alot either save the torrent to your pc then open it. Or clear out your temp internet files that will generally resolve the issue.
(XP compresses temp internet files once it reaches certain # of files or 1/2 allotted space that is what causes the error at least in all cases I have seen)

 

 

Problem connecting to tracker - <urlopen error (111, 'Connection refused')>

Just let the torrent run in your client and the client will keep checking the tracker and should resume eventually.

 

 

Problem Getting Response Info - [errno2] No such file or directory

As I have already said the directory of C : /// is probably causing your problems, it's most likely a temporary directory that Internet Explorer uses when you left click on the torrent file. Try right clicking on the .torrent and selecting "save target as" . Then save the .torrent file to a directory on your C drive. Keep them all in a folder specifically designed for use with Bit Torrent and your life will be much easier.

Then when you start your client and you're ready to download the files you can navigate to that special folder and not have to keep searching for where Windows plonks the torrents each time.

Clear your temp internet files then make a dedicated folder for your torrents and try again. Put the dl in the folder you made.

Create a folder for your torrents and change the directory location settings in your client.
This had worked for me before.

 

 

Rejected by tracker - Your IP is not registered to use this tracker for this file

About the permission problem to that tracker; probably it is overloaded, so the owner decides to only allow certain IPs to use the tracker.

 

 

Problem connecting with tracker - (10060, 'Operation timed out')

That error means that the server is down or too busy to process your request. Just keep trying - leave it open.

Leave Bt open, if it doesn't see some action by about 20mins then try again later, the tracker's just busy that's all.

Many have this problem from time to time, but for most of them it doesn't matter cause the download will eventually connect to the tracker, however it can take some time...have had 30 minutes of inactivity myself, but mostly much shorter time-periods...

If you can't connect to any tracker then the problem is surely on your side...try to disable any firewalls you may have, and if you go through proxy-servers but don't have to, try to test it without...If you don't get it to work without any interference from firewalls or proxy's, then I'm at a loss...perhaps somebody else will have a look.

Connection issues to trackers normally mean they are creaking under the strain of all the traffic. The only thing you can do is to keep your client open and let it automatically retry to connect at regular intervals until it succeeds.

Your download speed can be down to many things, some you have control over and some you don't. The obvious place to start is with any router or firewall configuration. Do you have either on your connection?

 

 

Problem connecting to tracker. HTTP error 503: service unavailable

Have you tried using torrent spy to check on the tracker's status?
Maybe the tracker is down for a rest or something bad happened.

 

 

Piece XXX failed hash check, re-downloading it

About that hash check error; Bitterest downloaded a wrong packet, so he's redownloading it. Nothing to worry about.

 

 

Web page is frilled with errors

Means the torrent is dead or tracker is down or tracker is overloaded. You really can't tell which of the three.

It only mean it can't get a connection with tracker,
so anything that cause the tracker to be non-responsive during checking could be causing that error message.

 

END...
