'problem connecting to tracker',Help?
A list of other problem connecting to tracker issues.
Option 1 is the tracker for the file you are trying to download is down. If this is the case, try again later, Odds are it will be resolved shortly. BitTorrent Tracker problems are not unusual, they typically have a high volume of traffic, and are run in less than optimal circumstances.
Option 2 is less palatable, It may indicate that your net connection doesn't allow arbitrary outgoing connections which is needed for BitTorrent to work properly. This could be caused by 2 things.
BitTorrent NAT/Router problems
You need to forward your ports if you have NAT in order to get optimal speeds. This is one of the most common issues people fail to configure when they use BitTorrent. To Find out if you have a NAT issue go here. If you get a message of "It would appear that your machine does use NAT", then this section is for you.
You will need to resolve this by forwarding ports. A BitTorrent Tracker usually defaults to using ports in the range of 6881-6999. (TCP ports) The client starts at the first port in the range(6881) and sequentially tries higher ports until it can find one to which it can bind. So you only need to open as many ports as simultaneous BitTorrent clients you would ever have open.
If you have one of these broadband router/NAT devices (such as the Linksys BEFSR41, D-Link DI-701/704, Netgear RT311, SMC Barricade, 3Com Home Ethernet Gateway, etc.) you will usually need to enter the web configuration of the device. If you're not sure, try http://192.168.1.1/ or sometimes http://192.168.0.1/.
http://192.168.1.1/ (Asus, Draytek, Linksys, Zyxel, Cisco,WooWeb-Pro)
http://192.168.2.1/ (Belkin,SMC (some browsers need :88 added))
http://192.168.0.1/ (DLink, NetGear,Nexland)
If you can't figure it out, try the manual for the device -- they are often on the manufacturer's web site in PDF form
