    I see a lot use Azereus. Any tips on getting the most out of it? What ports do you guys open?

    Also, I notice Azereus won't let you resume downloads, only replace. Any way to turn resume on?

    the times i've used a torrent client, it has taken forever to get a certain file as compared to a p2p but I can understand your second point!
