Exclamation Bittorrent port selection problem


Hello, im not sure if this is the correct place to put this thread, and if it isnt i would be grateful if the admin could move it.

I have recently joined my university network. I am running Azureus to download bittorrents (good torrents). I keep getting the 'NAT' problem and sometime get a error of 'UPnP: Mapping'Incoming Peer Data Port (TCP/65535|)' Failed. At one point at around 13:00 GMT i was downloading on average 220kb/s peaking to a good 310kb/s but now i am downloadiing at 300b/s. Am i using the wrong port of is the network just busy?

Cheers in advance for any help

I don't know, but it's possible. And it seems obvious too.

I would bet the University network is just very busy and also they probably trottle your download speed. - you can't win
