    Today i tried do download some anime at animesuki.com and since i use transmission as my torrent client, it refuse the download or upload. I never had that issue with leopard but with snow leopard it refuse to upload anything to the web.

    I had to turn the firewall off.

    Have you installed the latest update for Transmission? It has specific support for Snow Leopard and is also 64-bit.

    Set it so that it asks you about incoming connections and you'll be fine.

    Im still waiting for a quick shutdown time for Transmission. It usually hangs for me and if I click Apple>Shutdown, it will cancel out because Transmission is shutting down and takes too long.

    But the first few times I ran the new Transmission, it took quite a while for it to connect and start downloading anything.

    I just installed transmission for the first time yesterday. Prior to that I was using Vuze

    Same problems, for the most part
    -Hangs on shutdown
    -Takes a while to start downloading

    I had a problem with it interacting with files at first (it saved files in weird places), but I re-selected the downloads directory again in preferences and it seems to have fixed it.

    Maybe this "file sharing blocked" thing is that same file-related problem. Try doing what I did.

    By the way: even though Vuze is faster to start downloading and shutting down, I prefer transmission's interface enough to stick with it... that is, unless that file problem returns.

    ye, the 1.74+ works, but they still haven't fixed the most important bug, complete and total system lockups. :mad: I was hoping so badly that the 1.74 version would be awesome, bug free, no more lockups. 3 mins into downloading 3 files, with max peers on 1000, and per file on 200, downloading at 1.5MB/s, total system lockup. Had to force quit computer. :mad: Back to uTorrent. :(

    I've never experienced anything like that on any version of Transmission with Tiger, Leopard or Snow Leopard? :confused:

    Unfortunately I've had it multiple times, on Leopard and Snow Leopard. It's my favorite torrent downloader, but it's so irritating that it just locks up. It uses way less CPU usage than uTorrent, but uTorrent doesn't freeze.

    I upgraded to the latest transmission on snow leopard, and I have to say it runs like a bag of crap compared to the previous version.

    have not experience any lock ups so far under SL. in Leopard it ran like a champ on the latest update.
