Tracker: [Unable to connect to UDP tracker.]
But nevertheless rtorrent download correctly raspian.iso , debian.iso and another linux images
Tracker list info show:

Code: Select all

Trackers: [Key: 54239b81] [             ]
                    Id:  Counters: 19f / 0s (0)  on S/L/D: 0/0/0 (0/0)
Info            1: dht://
                    Id:  Counters: 0f / 0s (0) err S/L/D: 0/0/0 (0/0)
My .rtorrent.rc show:

I have rulet out a bad port configuration because in windows works.
I thinks the problem is in DTH config or i dont know.

Can you help me please?
