    how to use bittorrent?

    Hello,

    I've never used a bittorrent before and I'm using Gutsy. Can someone tell me how to use BITTORRENT? I'm trying to download the new NIN album and I get timeouts (also with Ubuntu ISOs).

    What program are you using. Good torrent applications are:
    • Deluge
    • Azureus
    • KTorrent

    Now about the timeouts; there is a possibility that your ISP is throttling torrent downloads or even blocking them. One solution to bypass this is to encrypt your torrent packets. All of the above applications support encryption.

    I'm trying to use BITTORRENT (the ubuntu default client). I tried AZUREUS and got nowhere with that either. Is this a firewall/iptables issue?
