I just bought Ares ultra download. I waited about 25 minutes and couldn't get connected to download the specific movie I wanted. Maybe I set something up incorrectly. Here is what I have done so far and what my computer is.
-I have XP service pack 2
-I am connected by Road Runner on Time Warner cable on a wireless connection
-I watched the little tutorial video on Ares about how to download.
-made connection choices
-set up connection speed as cable
- set up a special folder to transfer movies to
-put a check in the box-My computer is behind a firewall or can't accept
incoming connections. This put a dot in Don't use proxy,
-Checked connection, got message -test passed
-made sure it said connected at top
-selected video to download, and got the arrow pointing downwards that
indicated the download process was starting.
This is where I ran into trouble. I never could get a connection to download the movie.(Even after 20 minutes) I tried selecting different movie providers for the same movie title. I even tried downloading the movie King Kong since this was the example they used in the tutorial. I didn't have any success.
Please offer any suggestions.
