Bittorrent error -

    Hi Everyone,

    I installed BitTorrent, but am not able to download anything b/c I keep on receiving this error:

    urlopen error - (7, 'getaddrinfo failed')

    I took the advice on a lot of FAQ sites to let it run for awhile (I let it run overnight) but my download status has never gone past 0%.

    Does this problem have to do w/my Norton AntiVirus installed? Or my router?

    Any help would be very very much appreciated!!!

    Thanks!!

    Thanks for your reply, and sorry for my lack of knowledge, but 1 more question :)

    Do you know how I can try and find those settings to unblock it? I tried looking around my NAT to find my firewall settings, but to no avail. Also, I recently installed the new XP SP - (which included an annoying popup blocker - I already have google's blocker). Any chance that came w/new firewall settings?

    yep - shitty windows xp SP2 firewall

    goto control panel and double click windows firewall, disable it & get a better one like mcafee or sygate, lol, actually reverse that - get a better one, then disable windows firewall ;^D

    althought if that doesn't help it might be the .torrent where did u get it?

    one more thing... you can disable the popup blocker in SP2 by right clicking on the bar at the bottom of internet explorer
    (where the little "blocked popup" icon appears)
    and selecting disable/stop popup blocker :D

    Awesome - thanks! I'm at work now, so I won't be able to test this out right away - but will be doing so when I get home.

    I think the site that i got my .torrent from is pretty legit as I have friends that have gotten files from there - suprnova.org?

    OMG

    dude..... what part of "no piracy" do you not understand???

    GTA - San Andreas, for the PS2 - is a brand new, copyrighted game.... which means your are illegally obtaining files that are copyrighted which = piracy!!

    ok, so you got it???? no piracy!!!!

    but - if it says "rejected by tracker - torrent not registered with this tracker" then the torrent can't be downloaded and you would have to find another source to download, that torrent won't work - ever

    but remember!! no piracy!!!
