I downloaded a torrent program client about a month ago, but everytime i try to DL stuff, I get an error.

Is there any torrent experts out there who can give me good directions on where to go for torrents, a good place for clients, and some help on what i have to do to get them working?

Thanks in advance.

Got a firewall?

http://bittornado.com/ for the bittorent program

www.suprnova.org for torrents

Once you install the client, all you have to do is click the torrent link and go from there.

Yeah, I do, but I checked allow when it comes up.

I'll try the links that Miles left.

Thanks guys.

I would recommend Azureus as your bittorrent client, I'm not sure of the website but just google Azureus and you should find it. The only bad thing is that it's a bit of a resource hog because it uses Java to run, but I can usually download 1-2 GB in a day using it (I have dsl with around 2 Mb/sec download).

Other sites I've used are www.phoenix-torrents.com and www.torrentbits.org. Let me know what you're looking for or shoot me a PM and I can help you out.

The other sites I use for torrents are:



I think you have to register for at least one of those, but its worth it.

It's very important to have backups of stuff!

I would recommend Azureus as well. It uses only a single port for all torrents. Simply clicking yes when the firewall pops up won't help. You have to actually open up whatever port you choose Azureus to use. It's a step you have to do manually and it varies with all firewalls, though it's very easy. Consult your firewall guide for info on opening ports.

I have sygate's firewall and for the life of me I can't figure out how to manually open the ports.

I searched the help topics and nothing...

i don't know if you have the pro version, but "advanced application configuration" lets you specify that torrent uses certain ports.
