    Hi, I just got uTorrent and the torrents aren't downloading. Is it because of a port or something?

    Thanks

    It could be any number of things - internet connection, port forwarding, seeds, HD space, etc.

    Concerning uTorrent specifically, I experienced one known bug. When you download a torrent, you have to download the entire thing and not selected files. If you attempt to download, say, 3 out of 4 files, you will get an error message stating that you're running low on disk space.

    Other than that bug, uTorrent has been working great. I set a new record on my Mac earlier today... 11.3MB/s :D

    if this helps, the little colored circle is gray "inactive" not sure why...

    I also tried transmission and it doesn't work :(

    sounds like ports need to be opened on your router.
