Hi Steve,

Are you on the ANU network?  Because I believe that the net admins have
blocked BitTorrent...  If you can do a packet capture and see what it's up to
there, that might help debug things.  You may need to also check your firewall
settings and check Transmission to see that it's using a port that isn't
blocked (for both outgoing and incoming connections).

But otherwise, I believe Steve Hanley and Mikal Still were talking about
making the videos available on the Linux Australia mirror (hosted on the ANU
network).  That's out of my control.  My personal bandwidth and that of my
hosting provider aren't really up to serving lots of copies of large files;
hence BitTorrent.

Hope this helps,
