  1. Because torrents do not include per-file hashing information, only per-piece, the "community" will not actually know that the files are identical and it won't get included into the respective swarm.
  2. Without knowing more about your configuration (such as internet security software, router and internet provider information) we really don't have enough information to do proper troubleshooting.
  3. BitTorrent writes data to a resume state file provided you let it shut down on its own time. If you let it shut down properly, it will resume automatically when you start it again.
  4. You have to submit the .torrent file to those search engines yourself. It does not get automatically uploaded.
  5. The NAT-PMP and UPnP issue has to do with a combination of settings on your router (if you have one) and your computer. If NAT-PMP and UPnP are both enabled in BitTorrent and you don't have either enabled in your router (most routers only have one) you will get the error you got regarding them. As for the other error, are you trying to save to a USB or network location?
  6. Does the problem persist with torrents from http://distribution.openoffice.org/p2p/ ? If so, it may be because of either internet provider interference or internet security software on your machine.
  7. The common steps for troubleshooting I recommend come from the uTorrent forums at http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=15992
  8. All of these "Not allowed" values are not actually relevant to troubleshooting. The tracker entry itself (which usually starts with http:// or udp://) is what we need the status for.
  9. Youtube setup guides make recommendations to settings changes that are horrendous for actual performance (such as per-torrent connection limits being higher than global). Please refrain from recommending them.
  10. What internet security software do you have installed? What settings have changed and what ones haven't?
  11. You get this message because your browser didn't complete the download of the program. You need to either clear your temporary internet files and try again or use a download manager or another browser to download.
  12. Have you checked the preferences to make sure it's turned off in there?
