      Torrent problem

      Hi Everyone,

      I have tried to download 6 things this morning but keep getting an error message on Azureus which says,

      connection error (connectException:connection refused: connect)

      Any ideas ?

      It has always worked fine until today...

      Thanks for any help

      Steve

      could it be that you don't have access to the correct tracker ?

      Re: Torrent problem

      certain torrents require you to be members of there website
      on some sites this is indicated by a Red P beside the torrent which means private tracker.

      It could also be just a connection problem with sky but i'm having no problems with my sky max

      I don't use that bit Torrent Client, but ask at the Azureus forum here someone there may know the answer for you..

      I agree I think its a torrent tracker error... but not 100% sure..

      Re: Torrent problem

      Hi Cockney... what torrent website is it?? I use many.. but just checked via google and it is deffo tracker related from what I have read...

      Just as a test why not download U Torrent and try each torrent in your azureus list and see if you have any probs with that?
