I installed Bittorrent and got it running but I noticed that I can only do download/upload one at a time. How can I set this up for multiple downloads? Thanks.

Just set another one going in another terminal window, IIRC?

Hi
Yes you can use multiple instances or try using Azureus.

I was trying to install azereus the other night but when I did /azureus it came up with "azureus TERMINATED" and I already have java installed, so I gave up.
I found that thread about multi download with Bittorrent using GUI (and a screenshot too) somewhere but I could not find it now. Maybe you can post a link to it.
Andy, thanks for your reply. I will sure try it later.

Hi
Did you try this while installing azureus
open ./azureus with any text editor, change the path "JAVA_PROGRAM_DIR" to where your JRE installed.
For my case, with latest JRE 1.5, the line should be changed like this:

JAVA_PROGRAM_DIR="/usr/java/jre1.5.0_01/bin/"

This might also help
