Check your firewall and make sure that you're not blocking the specified ports for Bit Torrent. If you're using a NAT firewall, make sure that you enable port forwarding. Some of the older BT clients are only set to use ports 6881-6889. Version 3.2+ is set to use ports 6881-6999. As a regular user, you really only need to enable as many ports as you're going to have as downloads. Many people are fine with using 6881-6889.
