Try changing the port number in the settings.

Im pretty sure youre not able to torrent, they block peer to peer connections or something like that. When I was living in halls I could never get it to connect. Someone might know a way around this but I never figured it out.

We used to be able too, but then the admins figured out how to block it :lol:

I could still connect to the Uni VPN, which bypassed the firewall and meant I could torrent at amazing speeds :D Not man people knew about that.

You're best off getting a rapidshare account.

When I worked for UNITE they used to stop you torrenting by restricting your speed if you took the piss. Probably not the source of your problem now, but worth remembering if you suddenly have your internet slow to a crawl.
