If you are choosing a bit torrent client be sure to check out Transmission.

Transmission is very good and clean, but it presently doesn't support rss.


Transmission is also slow by comparison.

>>>"Couldnt find an available port to listen on. Would you like LH-ABC to try using another port ?"
This message means LH-ABC couln't bind the listening port.
This usually means the port is used by some other application.

When you get this message and press "Yes", LH-ABC will try to use the next port (+1).
If you choose "No", the GUI will come up (giving you the opportunity to change your network preferences), but any attempt to start a torrent will bring up the error (it shouldn't, I will fix it).

Please change your port to some other value and test it again.

Some other hints:
- Don't set ipv6 on if you only have ipv4
- Don't set UPnP if you don't have a router / your router doesn't support it.

The next version will handle it better.


After some more testing I realized the GUI can't come up because of the last error.

In case the problem is really the listening port:
- press 'Yes' when you get the first message.
- If that doesn't work, open Users//.LH-ABC/abc.conf with any text editor and:
A. change the 'minport' value
B. remove the 'bind' key and its value

Thank you very much for the bug report!

>>>download splited files
what do you mean?
If you mean selective downloading then Torrent Details-> File Info -> Right click on files to set their priority, including never download.
Let me know if you're talking about something else ;)


Thx ,I didnt know for this option.
