    Good Bittorent program for MAC

    Sorry if this was posted before i did a search but no results. Anyone know a good program that will actually download the file, bittorrent really blows for MAC version. I have Bitlord on my Computer but i'm in the process of moving and i need some good movies for the looooong drive.

    If you have apple firewall on, make sure you allow the port other wise it will download reaaaaaaaally slow..

    I prefer Xtorrent, it lets you search for stuff all in the same app and is really clean to use.

    If I need to download only one thing from a torrent, I use Azereus, but you need to set up your firewall for that.

    And if you are looking for a cute, free client there is Bits on Wheels, but that's not updated anymore.

    Xtorrent is really slick, give it a shot.

    And, as a quick note, you don't capitalize Mac all the way! MAC is an networking term, Mac is just short for Macintosh!

    what you need to do is

    go back to where it says you allow ftp
    and choose [ NEW ]

    type the name of the program
    type the port that you're torrent program uses
    and allow it...

    my downloads went from 25KB to 150KB+

    Make sure you be aware of your upload settings.

    I cap mine at 20k because if you max out your upload capacity, you will suffer greatly on download speeds.

    Glad to be of help!

    Win.

    BitRocket is a good alternative, but as far as I know, it's still in BETA. I've yet to encounter any errors, though. It offers many of the same features that Azeures does, but with a much cleaner, more mac-like interface and the added bonus that it's not written in lolJava.

    Edit: Xtorrent is also very good.
