Everytime I try to download a (legal) file through this program, it says it is downloading but the percentage never increases, or only does by 0.1 percent over a half hour. I have a high-speed wireless connection.

Anyone have any ideas that don't involve fappage?

What client are you using, and what site are you DLing off of?

You may need to open up your ports. What this means I am not too sure because I can't control the ports I use because I use university network. Just Google a torrents page which can give you some help about ports and how to utilise them.

Torrents aren't based on the speed of your internet per se; more on how many people are seeding and leeching the files.

You can have the fastest internet in the world but if there are no seeders for the file you won't be able to download the file.

Just make sure the file you are downloading has a large pool of seeders / leechers and you should be fine.

EDIT: I haven't used torrents for ages, I forgot about opening ports, this is pretty important as well

I use uTorrent and Isohunt.

it sez there are no seeds and no peers. are leechers the same thing as peers?

Ahh, two good things. I dunno what peers are, but leechers are those who DL a file and then don't seed it, so they're bastards

If anyone can tell me what a peer is too, I'd appreciate it.

No seeds means that you cant download the file from someone as you're in a P2P network.

So thats why you wont get anything, because there is nobody to give you the file.

Well there's no seeds, so you're never going to get it.

It will help.

no it's okay, i fixed it.

the complete discography of Cathedral is now downloading, though erratically at anywhere between 4 and 267 kb/s

anyone know why this might be?

to forward your ports first check on your torrent program's options which port it is using and then go onto whatever firewall program you use and make sure that that port is allowed.

Make sure you're ports are correctly forwarded and try again with a torrent with a nice seed/leach ratio

Anyway: Seeders have the entire software and are making it available for download ("seeding"). Leechers only have it partially and are downloading ("leeching") it from seeders and other leechers. Both seeders and leechers are peers (thus the name P2P, or peer-to-peer network). If there aren't any seeders or leechers for whatever you're trying to get, then guess why you aren't downloading it...

I meant uTorrent, I'm like half asleep.

And the movie companies come out making millions of dollars just from premieres and ****, bands need it, especially small bands. And don't pull that "They only make a small cut, the record companies make the rest" bull****, any is better than none, and if the band doesn't make anything, they'll get cut. Anyway, no hijacking, if you wanna continue this, take it to profiles.

You'd think people being musicians here would be more respectful of bands...

It's hardly about legalities, and legalities aren't the same as morals.
