Downloading on Mac 10.5.8 — "checking for firewall"


Recommended Posts

I'm just getting started on Bittorrent on my Mac laptop, but my downloads won't start.

I've successfully found some torrents, gotten them imported into Bittorrent software, but they're now just sitting there at 0%, and the status bar at the bottom of the window reads "Checking for firewall..."

It's been over an hour now, with no change. I don't have any firewall software installed, and can't see anything in my network settings that would be blocking downloads.

Anyone know what I should do? Thanks!!
