Again, could very well be a port issue. Check the documentation and maybe even a FAQ for the program you're using.

a connection refused error can be because you are using a blacklisted port. Or because the tracker posted requires that you login first. Also connection refused errors are because the tracker is either down or your connection is flooded and you do not have enough bandwidth left to attempt a sucessful connection. I found that alot of the posted torrent's use trackers that require login before use, which means you have to go to the site, register, and then try to download.
