    Then you are fine. Most likely your ISP is blocking Torrent & P2P.

    What you could try is have a buddy run an Xubuntu Live DVD and do a Network scan of your IP for Open ports. Or even do it on your network. The problem with ISP's, especially foreign nations. They are becoming very restrictive on what they allow to be done on their networks. Some will not let you do anything, other then check email, look at certain websites.

    You would be better to run it off of a DVD vs. USB Flash Drive. The load time would be quicker. Go to xubuntu.org. Better, quicker package to run for this kind of stuff.

    I like Xubuntu, due to it is lightweight, does not use the Unitity interface that Ubuntu does. Mint has had a lot of issues lately. That was the other reason I went with Xubuntu. I have had no issues running it.

    Open up a Terminal window and do the following: "sudo apt-get install gnome-nettool". It will ask for a password to escalate privileges. It may not work on a Live USB. If you are already running Ubuntu in a Partition, just install the Network Tools in that partition and scan that IP of the computer in question.

    turns out opening port 23807 solved the problem. idk what this port does but it plays a part in the application i was attempting to run. also ive found that comodo was partly to blame after i turned it back on to test the connection ceased. my next step will be to allow some applications through via comodo. in the end topic solved, thanks everyone who responded to this topic ^u^
