    Torrents stopped downloading
    Heya, I have a Mac running Snow leopard. My torrent downloads have stopped working, first i thought it was the torrent, so i downloaded a few more and none are connecting to the trackers. I use Vuze to download them. I tried the torrents with uTorrent and still the same problem! I then tried my laptop (running windows 7) on the same internet connection and the torrents download fine! Please help!

    I don't believe I'm allowed to help unless you claim that your downloading legal things lol.

    But lets presume you are Is your firewall on or off? Is the light thing at the bottom of uTorrent Red, Yellow or Green?

    yep downloading legal things,

    its a little red light, it refuses to connect to any peers, i know they are there as i can download the same torrent from my pc.... but why have a mac if i cant use it :S

    Oh and i know little about mac firewalls, i haven't installed any extra ones but conversely i haven't played with any of the settings... it has always worked with this Mac

    Just check system preferences -> security -> firewall -> stop

    Then give it ago, just need to check that it's not your firewall blocking it
