    I can't download any torrents, I'm on a university wireless connection, at one of the libraries, and i can't seem to get any torrents to work. i can't ping the trackers, utorrent says the trackers are offline but they're not (i can see the website and the list of seeders/leechers), any idea?

    you're school's network is most likely blocking that stuff. if it is, you aren't going to get help here bypassing your school's security.

    Agreed. You're blocked. Use another ISP.

    this is not a work around of your school's restrictions, but it is possible to download torrents at another location that has access (ie your dorm, your off campus home) using a remote computer, and then sftp the results to your computer in the library.
