    I am not very computer savvy...

    So I have just installed Poisoned on my powerbook g4. Its not working at all. I double checked the firewall protection on my powerbook, and my computer is allowing all programs.

    On the network information section it is telling me that the file sharing programs are all not connected and I cannot figure out why/how to connect them. My wireless internet connection is excellent and I am apparently connected to the poisoned program bc I can disconnect from it. I'm running Mac OSX 10.5.8

    Can anyone help me figure out why I cannot connect and use the file sharing?

    wow, haven't used that program in years because it seems like it hasn't worked right in years.

    First, Poisoned isn't a Bittorrent program, it's a Gnutella-based P2P program. If you're looking for a Bittorrent program, Transmission, µTorrent, and Vuze are some of the most popular.

    If you're looking for sources, that depends on what you want to be able to download. Many popular open source programs are downloaded via torrents, though they also usually have an HTTP method as well (requiring no extra software, but a little slower), and you can find their torrents on the applications website.

    If you're looking to download copyrighted material, however, such as music and movies (common uses of torrent software, though not the exclusive use), we can't and won't help you. Forum rules explicitly forbid providing sources to such material.
