Did you perhaps enable your firewall or something like that?

You probably have to open corresponding ports in your firewall. What firewall do you use and what ports for peer to peer?

For example if you use UFW firewall and the peer tp peer port is 45000 you open that port in UFW like this in a terminal.

Code: Select all
sudo ufw allow 45000

Do you have a router between your computer and internet? If that is the case you have to open the port in the router as well.
