how to setup a proxy


Recommended Posts

I believe my ISP is blocking access when torrents have a tracker residing from http://tracker.openbittorrent.com/announce.

If this is the only site listed in the properties of the torrent, it won't download; even though there are several hundred seeds and peers. And, I am referring to new torrents (ie something uploaded in the last week). As a test, I downloaded a torrent from UBUNTU's website and it downloaded in less than an hour. My troubled torrents are still stalling.

My friend recommended I use a proxy to get these downloads to work. I see the option under Preferences but I am not sure what exactly I am to type in that field. I downloaded Vidalia's Tor Proxy application. What should I do next to get these downloads rockin?
