#903 closed Bug (fixed)

1.11: Not making use of Tier 2 tracker on Tier 1 error

Reported by: charles Owned by: charles
Priority: Normal Milestone: 1.20
Component: libtransmission Version: 1.11
Severity: Major Keywords:


attempted to start a torrent, but unfortunately Transmission would not download the file and simply showed a yellow caution triangle, with the status message for the torrent, "Error: unregistered torrent." However, I could see on the webpage from which I downloaded the torrent that the number of peers was steadily increasing. Thus I knew others were not having the same problem.

Not willing to give up, nor willing to install Azureus (switched to Transmission when Leopard came out, and never want to go back), I did the following. I loaded the torrent file in Torrent Editor and noticed that one of the trackers had been given the status of "Tracker has not seen this torrent." I then deleted that tracker, and downloaded the modified torrent file. Upon loading the new torrent in Transmission, it immediately began downloading, much to my delight.
