Connecting from Off Campus

Postby davo » Fri Apr 02, 2010 3:21 pm

Hey I've set up port forwarding and also tried connecting via passive mode but I can't manage to connect (even with my firewall disabled).

I get:
[16:15] *** Connecting to hub.twofo.co.uk:4144...
[16:15] *** Connected
[16:15] <Hub-Security> This hub is running version 0.7.15 of Open DC Hub.

And that's it, no welcome message and I am listed as the only user. It's probably something silly that I've missed but any help would be much appreciated.

Which ISP are you with? That sort of message means you are connecting to the hub, but your download is limited/shaped so much that it can't get past the initial connection window.
Also, are you overloading your internet torrenting or whatever as well? An extreme lack of bandwidth can also cause that at your end.

Maybe try connecting to one of the other public hubs (of which there are thousands) in View -> Public Hubs, if you get the same from all of them then there may not be an awful lot more you can do
