We just got a new 20 inch iMac, and I can't seem to get Azureus to work. I was using a slightly older version of Azurues on my old iMac with no problems. Now I just got 2.3.0.6 for my new computer, and it loads up fine, but then just endlessly searches for new updates. I have tried d/l torrents with it, and nothing happens. I have also tried using the actual BitTorrent client, and I can't get anywhere either. Like I said, I was using both of these programs on my old computer without any troubles, but on my new computer, somthing has changed that is making these torrent files useless. Hopefully somebody else has had this issue, and has some ideas on how to help me out. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Matt

There shouldn't be any issue if you didn't change anything in your network setup. Have you tried Transmission?

First of all, thank you for your replies so far. I still can't get any torrents to work on my new computer. The only difference that I can think of is that I had to phone my cable internet provider to have the modem "switched" over to a new computer. I have tried Tomato Torrent, Bit Torrent, and Azureus. In Azureus, it just endlessly searches for an update, and doesn't let me do a thing. In Bit Torrent, nothing happens, and in Tomato Torrent, it tells me that there is a problem connecting with the tracker. I have tried to completely turn off the Apple firewall, and this doesn't help at all. I'm starting to lose my mind since I'm sure that nothing else has changed. Hopefully somebody out there has also had this happen to them because I can't imagine a life without torrents.
Thanks everyone.

Do you have a router? It doesn't sound like it. If you don't, I don't recommend turning your firewall off completely. Turn your firewall on and add place for Bittorrent by opening ports 6881-6999 that should cover any tracker. If you DO have a router you will need to open said ports there too. Look under port forwarding or someting similar. You should also set you Mac to have a static IP.

I got new iMAC 17" dualcore just few days ago(18 jan 2006), and I was aslo disapointed as Azureus, Aquisition would not work. Then I downloaded BitTorrent 4.3.5 and it works fine. Does not crash and has some good downloading speed. I hope it helps.

What version of Tiger is on the machines that will not run Azureus? It could be 10.4.4 broke it. My 2.1 Ghz iSight iMac ran everything fine but have not tried a few things since the last update.

i have just gotten the second newist imac (no intel chipset, still got isight and stuff tho) and i had a little bit of trouble with azerues cause my ISP had blocked some ports, try changog your port and you may find it works, also other programs might use the port its on so use the tool to test it.

if you have done this already ingor this.

I got a new iMac too. it's a 17 inch. I've been having the same problems. Right now, I'm assuming that there's no torrent client that's supported by the dual core iMacs. Wait at most a few months, and they'll improve it.

Oh, and bittorrent runs SUPER slow for me (i know, torrents are supposed to be slow, but bittorrent is unbearably slow. I've used it on windows... MUCH better)

Hey guys. The reason azureus isn't loading has more to do with the newer intel macs. Sadly the azureus development team has done nothing to fix this yet, but there are hacked versions that fix the problem of not launching around the internet. Hope this helps. Schweb recommended Transmission which is a LOVELY torrent program. Give it a try!!!!

Check out Aquisition. You have to pay for a subscription, but it's a one-time-only type thing. I did and it's amazing. Fast xfer rates too, both on searches and torrents.

Azureus works fine on 10.4.2/3/4/5 for me. Did you make sure you have setup the ports correctly and that you have your firewall setup right?
