    Default Any utorrent users?

    Guys

    Ive got a major issue with Utorrent at the minute. I can get my torrents and can get them to open in utorrent to begin downloading however they wont download.
    The just stay on the same setting saying connecting 0% and dont change at all.

    I have never had this before and is really starting to annoy me. Any advice would be great

    Are your ports open?
    are there definitely seeds on the torrent?

    maybe try transmission to see if that downloads.

    Probably a port issue, I was about to post about checking your firewall. Is uTorrent the app of choice or has Bitlord taken over? I don't tend to use torrents.

    I use transmission or the download manager built into xpenology. it downloads http links nzb torrents and ftp almost anything.

    I do have Utorrent as a backup on the PC though.
    I was a big fan of azureus but that started bloating.

    To use Newgroups for series etc, you'll need a newshosting service (pay a small fee for this either monthly yearly or per gigabyte of data for your downloads.) Tweaknews, Astraweb.

    Then get a download client such as Sabnzbd. You can then use an indexing service.

    Then to download series etc use a prog called nzbdrone or sickbeard for TV series and for movies couchpotato. - These progs search automatically for all the suff you want, the tell Sab to download it and organise it for you.

    Takes a bit of getting used to to begin with but once you have it all set up it's easy.

    Loads of us on here can help you with it.

    You can auto download using utorrent via the built in RSS downloader and RSS feeds if your torrent site supports it.

    I use RSS feeds on bitsoup and ip.
    My download centre has an RSS feed filter so it only grabs what I want it to.

    Couchpotato supports torrents, not sure about nzbdrone/sb. Avoid AstraWeb now, they used to be good but loads of takedowns.

    I've used utorrent since the very first build, but after the BitTorrent/utorrent merge- I seemed to like each new version slightly less than the one before. I quite recently switched to Tixati, just for a change- and ended up really liking it! Yeah, Tixati ftw! Give it a try!
