Azureus...how to use?

how do i use this program, i have used it before when the bit torrent was provided, but. when i want something else what do i do?

i used it to download games from macgamefiles.com

any other programs? limewire seems to have stopped working all of a sudden. says i might have a firewall blocking it...

no idea. any other programs?

Also, when Azureus was running. my web browsers stopped working.

you have to search out the bitorrent files on a tracker (i.e. www.demonoid.com). It's not a browser of any kind....

Acquisition is good.... search macupdate.com

You can use amule if you are trying to find very rare files. Note that the ED2K network is only fast when you have multiple file downloading at the same time and stay on the network for long periods of time (days and weeks). If you have enabled the software firewall included in OS X, you can open ports with System Preferences/Sharing/Firewall/New... You cannot use P2P effectively without opening ports. If you have routers, consult your router's manual on topics such as port forwarding/triggering and NAT.

Try the UPnP feature... Maybe your "admin" have forgotten to turn it off on the PC.

If you have Azureus already, just google "gamename" (where "gamename" equals the public domain game you wish to acquire) _and_ the word "torrent." Download the torrent, which will open as an Azureus file on your Mac. That should be all you have to do.

Or you could go to download.com and search for the Mac version of what you want.

Slyck.com has a list of good torrent sites.

Usually, you can only find new files on bit torrent. If you are trying to find an old file, amule would be your best bet.
