Here's a strange one. It seems that at least in my particular section of the network I am unable to download torrent files directly. I of course have tested it on a variety of platforms and all of them seem to have the same problem, so it isn't just me. Any torrents I am currently running seed (and oh how those babies do) but the downloads stall out when I try and download the actual torrent files. We're talking public tracker to private tracker, it doesn't matter.
Actually, the only thing that bypasses this is if the files are downloaded from an https domain (as certain sites have). My question is: Does anyone think they know of a way to bypass this block?
