    Avoid a 24 hour download?

    I have opened ports 6881-6999, turned off firewall, downloaded BitTorrent,
    selected Zod-dvd-i386-torrent (on Fedora Projects torrent page), copied
    link address of Zod-dvd-i386-torrent to BitTorrent "add torrent" page. I
    get error "BitTorrent.GetTorrent.URLException: Could notdownload or open
    ''. Try using a
    web browserto download the torrent file. (<urlopen error timed out>).
    Question: how do I avoid a 23.5 hour download time to get FC6 on a
    cable connection? Thank you for a response.

    If downloading your distro is not working well, then you can always buy a pre-burned CD from Cheapbytes in the USA or The Linux Emporium in the UK. They're very inexpensive. If you have a slow internet connection, it can be faster for a disk to turn up in the post.

    Thanks for the input. I have downloaded Azureus, removed BitTorrent, and
    now only have to figure out the NAT error, probably firewall. Am trying to
    find how to open a hole in firewall which is in Fedora Core 5 (if there
    is one), so far haven't found a way. Have SELinux enabled, nothing in
    firewall administration checked, and am using PC Cillin - at least I think it
    is being doesn't show up under Applications but it could be working
    and just not be making itself known. Thanks again for the help.
