[bittorrent] compact ip problem

Hi. I'm having some problems sending announce responses
with compact ips on it. Apparently the clients don't
recognize the compact ip that i'm generating (using java
code). If i send regular ips and ports, it works fine.
To generate the four first bytes (IP) i use the code:
String ip = (...)
InetAddress inetAddress = InetAddress.getByName(ip);
byte rawAddress = inetAddress.getAddress();
For the other two bytes (port):
compactIP = (byte)(port >> 8);
compactIP = (byte)(port & 0xff);
(which is apparently how azureus do that)
The response that is arriving to the client is:
where "XXXX" are the IP bytes and "YY" the port bytes.
I even tried another format for the response, which some trackers use:
but it was the same.
Any idea about what could be wrong?
Thanks a lot.
