    Bit torrent help


    Hello. I am having a little difficulty with the bit torrent. I'm using Transmission. Specifically, I am trying to figure out how to do the downloads from thepiratebay.se Every time I try it only seems to give me a very small download that skips past my torrent client usually for some other program to install (.exe) that is for windows. I tried the magnet link too. If anybody can help me on this of what I might be doing wrong, I would be most appreciative.

    Thanks.

    You must download the .torrent file first to kick start your download. Many bitTorrent search sites have adware links which must be avoided.

    Thanks. I always use Chrome, but I tried Firefox and it worked fine. Chrome was having an issue with allowing the magnet link to go to Transmission. I just figured this out 3 days ago and have been without internet for the past 2 days.
