Torrent is the only download method for the Rock ISO. What proggy are you using for the torrent file?

It is only distributed via torrent. Why are you unable to use a torrent client to download the iso? What torrent client do you use? What steps have you tried? Out of curiosity I saved the .torrent file from here: The Rock Iso Archive then I used ktorrent to open the saved .torrent the .iso is downloading.

Dear members thank you for your answers. I am using Windows XP on my machine which is a part of a network connected to the internet. I used bittorent. I am unable to forward a port.When I do that, after a while browser reports web page not found. I contacted people who manage our network. They said that download will start without port forwarding. But it doesn't start. bittorent is in my machine's firewall's exceptions list, so firewall on my machine is not blocking it. I tried to download ktorrent for windows, but process stopped halfway, it reported an error in downlading a file.
