How I solved my magnet link problem: For Gern Blansten

I could'nt reply to ur message so I just created a new post.
I'm connecting to the internet through a http proxy so I couldn't use magnet torrents correctly. I figured out the solution was quite simple, after a little experimenting.
After opening magnet link in utorrent, you'll notice theres a tab on the bottom half of the screen saying Trackers, click on this and you will see a list of trackers. My problem was that I connected with a http proxy and the trackers were using udp, so I simply right-clicked on the udp trackers, selected add tracker.. , and then in the box at the top of the new window I edited the udp:// to say http://... and changed the :80 to :8080.
For example:
If the tracker was,
udp://tracker.thepiratebay.org:80/announce
i changed it to,
http://tracker.thepiratebay.org:8080/announce
This solved the problem as now the trackers were able to connect.

I didn't post it originaly coz looked like nobody cared.
Cheers M8.
