#1899 closed defect (worksforme)

The website encourages us to use bittorrent - but not working properly

Reported by: nothereforever@… Owned by: compn
Priority: normal Component: homepage

However the trackers within are no longer working.

i put the torrent file called "essential-20071007.tar.bz2.torrent" into Utorrent and i get no sources, the trackers have this error message: "No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it."

i recommend adding these in instead:
(one carriage return specifys backup servers, two specifies a seperate server)


right now i get one peer on openbittorrent which doesnt seem to have anything... so i will be downloading from your server. this needs fixing if you want to lower your server data usage. i looked for a 64bit linux version to download from your site but the archive didnt seem to contain codecs (it was mere kilobytes).
here is a sample of another torrent:
