All of a sudden Koinonein version 0.1.1.7 x64 (on Windows 8 x64) stopped working- it seemed that it failed to connect. It was white-listed in Windows firewall but yet I disabled the firewall to see whether this would help but it didn’t. I tried all Port Options (“I’ll pick my own port”, “Let Windows pick a free port each time Koinonein starts”, “Pick a random port each time Koinonein starts”) but this didn’t help either. All the time the network icon in the status bar was blinking:
and no downloads were possible. Then I downloaded the the latest Koinonein files with another torrent clients, re-added the downloads to Koinonein and all of a sudden the network connections unclogged. This is strange. It may be related to my system only but I would like to ask- is there a way to troubleshoot network problems?

Hi, Koinonein will let itself through the Windows Firewall as part of the installation process and it does this without prompting (what’s the point of a Bittorrent Client that can’t access the internet) then should Koinonein become blocked by any firewall after installation it will trigger the firewall prompt each time its blocked:
There are several different protocols in use in Koinonein (DHT, trackers, http seeds, ssl, etc) and the network indicator flashing with the red dot suggest that there is an issue with one of them but most likely no DHT and that’s probability because there was no results received from the DHT bootstrap and you can see if that’s the case from the status info showing the number of DHT nodes:
It’s then possible that the trackers you have on the torrents currently running were not working or had no peers available or even that all the torrents you have running were complete so no outbound connections were established as yet so the network status is only in incoming mode.
Currently there is no diagnostic option but I shall add an option to check all the protocols are operational but in the interim if you turn on the log options you’ll get detailed logging of any errors for the various protocols.

I believe we have fixed this issue, an updated version will appear in a day or so then the network diagnostics features shortly afterwords.
The network status icon has been changed also so it will show an error state and incoming/outgoing/both connections.
