    Azuerus has a linux version, i would try that. You probably just need to open ports in your firewall, but i don't use SUSE, so i'm not sure how you'd do that.
    Also, maybe the trackers you're trying to connect to are offline? I've had up to four torrents with different trackers all complain about not connecting while the rest are fine.

    1 ) you should have Java installed on your machine.
    2) Then install Azureus, which is the best and it has a nice GUI
    3) If you want non-GUI then bittorrent is the best.
