    Default None of the torrent downloaders work.
    Hey, I've been having a problem on my mac with every torrent downloader including Bittorrent, Vuze, Tomato and Transmission. Either it says tracker error or simply doesn't download at all. Anyone know why? EVerything works good on my pc, why can't I download torrents on my mac?

    I'm guessing perhaps your ports aren't forwarded for the IP address that your Mac is using.

    Either get into your router and forward the ports to your mac that transmission is using, or turn on UPnP on NAT-PMP in your router.

    Could you tell me how to do the first option? Cause I tried switching to NAT-PMP but I don't think it's possible on my router, all it has is turn UPnP off.

    Nevermind, problem solved thanks to Broomhead. Downloading uTorrent seemed to do the trick.

    Or go with the obvious

    As Broomy said, if you check each site most disallow alot of torrent apps, but yes Utorrent is the bestest.
