Help! I can't download torrents on my new mac. I know that it's not the problem with the torrents, because I try it on my PC and they work fine (my MAC and PC are connected to the same internet). Do I have to change the settings on my Mac to enable them to download torrents?

what torrent client are you using? Transmission is a popular one. I use it myself with no problems.

You might need to forward some ports to your mac in case you are using a router.

Seeing as he did not stake so we will be going with that, and secondly I don't think it is right to ask. If he wishes to go into illegally reasons that his and the torrent sites, and ISP problem not ours.

I respectfully disgree. If someone asks a question that MY answer "could be" used for illegal purpose(which is never my intent), the I have the responsibility to ask before I give information to purport any possible piracy. If it is used for illegal purpose, then I don't want to be a part of the conversation.

I'm not presuming it, I'm asking it.

Just so you know telling someone to google/yahoo/dog pile something could also be providing them the information to possible pirate software and movie. I bet you would be shocked by what you could find with a few key words.

But it's not relevant to the conversation unless someone explicitly infers that they might be using it for illegal purposes. If you don't want to be part of the conversation because you feel it might be legally dubious, please feel free to use the "!" button to report the post and then move on. That will alert the staff and help us to do our jobs.
