(First off I"m sorry if this is in the wrong place, I've never posted a thread related to torrents befrore and this seemed the most suitable forum) Now, I'm new to the "world" of torrents, and have only just been downloading torrent applications and messing around with them. But I seem to be getting nowhere. I've downloaded two programs - TomatoTorrent and Bits on Wheels - and have still be encountering the same problem. When I open a torrent in the Tomato program, I get a dialogue box up that reads 'Getting torrent info'. In 'Bits on Wheels' it is 'connecting to host' and this just goes on and on until it eventually times out. I think I downloaded another program too which wouldn't even open when I double-clicked the torrent file. I did get one torrent to start downloading on my computer, so I know they can work, it's just so far the ratio of ones to work to those that don't is about 9:1, or worse. I'd really appreciate some help in this matter as it's starting to drive me slightly crazy! Thanks, Smileyguy.
