Help! Mac OSX: Azureus vs. Firefox issue

  1. I would appreciate any help with the following issue:

    1. I am using Mac OS X
    2. Azureus (v3.0.1.2) is installed and downloads work fine
    3. Firefox (v2.0.0.2) is installed and web browsing also works fine


    4. with Azureus running, I cannot browse the web using Firefox (or using Safari or using IE via Parallels Desktop)
    5. Stopping Azureus and browsing with Firefox (Safari, IE) works again

    I suspect an issue with the Azureus settings but do not know enough to fix.

    Or should I be looking at the dynamic IP address assignment? Or NAT related settings?

    Please help.

    Thanks in advance,

    What do you mean "can't", need more specifics.

    Azureus is a Java application which means it hogs memory -- you need a large RAM to use this effectively.

    Tomato is a binary, native code torrent
    system which has the Mac look/feel. You would be better served by changing to
    it, as the Java config can take some effort and knowlege of that language.

    btw: WHICH OS X are you running?

    I think Tomato has problems with many trackers. Transmission finally got their act together and fixed that problem, now creating 2 viable torrent clients for OS X (Transmission and Azureus). Transmission doesn't support selective downloads or encryption yet but supposedly that is coming.

    Sounds like Azureus is using too many connections (or connecting too fast).
