    What is the best program to use for downloading torrents? I am currently using bits on wheels. I seem to get slow speeds no matter what website I am using. I was wondering if it might be faster to use a different program. (I have ports forwarded so that is not the problem).

    you can't, its just a basic downloaded, im going to have to change apps because my school blocks certain ports, including whatever one tomato uses but i have used azureus before and i think ports can be changed there

    tomato sucks at seeding..(from my experience)
