P2P

I've just started to dabble with file sharing, but I appear to have a problem.

Problem 1
I've downloaded Limewire, and I can search material (and if I'm lucky dowload) during offpeak, but cannot even search durin peak times. Why is this?

Problem 2
I've downloaded Azureus, and I can't connect at all. I know that azureus and ZA are not compatible, but what about the netgear dg632 firewall, is this causing the problem.

Can anyone suggest good, easy to use (and understand) bittorrent software?

Any links for an idiots guide to P"P?

Thanks

I'm guessing here, but Limewire probably searches in the same way as it downloads/uploads files and is therefore subject to the same management in peak times.

P2P

the easiest BitTorrent software is probably BitTorrent itself.

http://www.bittorrent.com/download.html

I found the newer versions of BitTorrent tend to crash my PC, so I don't use it anymore.

I quite like utorrent: http://www.utorrent.com/ - I find it more user-friendly than Azureus.

as for reasons for P2P not working, there is currently a problem for a lot of people with P2P usage...

first things first though, if you are new to P2P and its software, you must forward your ports - this site shows you how...
