Just a few questions to help the community here try to debug your problems.

1. Do you have any firewalls running? e.g. XP firewall. Right click on "my network places" | right click on your network and click Advanced Tab. Is the box checked?

If yes, disable it and try again.

2. Did you add a router? What kind of router? See if your router supports uPnP. If yes, enable it.

In Bittornado, click on Prefs, UPnP Forwarding shoul be type 1 (fast). Port range should be from 6881-6999.

3. Can you download from another site? For example, try downloading from bittornado and use the BT link vs. the HTTP link. can you download?

If No, your ISP may be blocking (some ISPs are beginning to block BT ports)

I hope this helps.

Yes, the university uses a router. No info was supplied about model or how to access it.

Already enabled. Unknown if UPnP is enabled on the router, too.

KazAa downloads work as do HTTP downloads.

My bet on this is: Router issue or ISP blocking ports. The user is using the university network to download so can someone clarify if there are usually problems with that?

PS: Why do I know all that? It's a S-E-C-R-E-T

You can still find my Azureus Download Guide here

By all means, make sure to read this.

Easy way to tell what router (mostly SOHO type or high-end Routers) you have is to telnet into it.

e.g.
Linksys: telnet 192.168.1.1 80 and hit Enter (where 1.1 is your Gateway and port 80 is the web interface port)
d-Link, Buffalo, etc SOHO type (see linksys)

High-End
e.g.
CISCO: telnet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 23
Juniper: telnet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 23
Lucent: telnet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 23

Note: this may not work with all models due to security restrictions but in most cases, routers are not configured/secured correctly and you can see the configuration using the "view" passwords.
