Well, my internet connection is quite slow and it does not accepts other countries connection (peer-to-peer). I heard that by using a proxy server, though I will get a slower connection, I will get be able to dpwload it. So, how do I use this proxy server?

You have to download a software program that will allow you to connect to a private proxy, anon proxy. But some of the proxies can be quite slow. Im terms of pinging. A4proxy is a good proxy manager as well as S.Y.M.P.A. A4 proxy is shareware but S.Y.M.P.A. is free and it will give you a constant update on new proxies. But with sympa you have to manually connect to the proxies. If you decide to go for S.Y.M.P.A. you will need to input the correct IP and DNS's numbers into the according setting in your dialup/lan/cable settings. and once you have inputted the proxy's correct information, Utorrent will start connecting to peers. But depending on the proxy connecting speed, you may be waiting a while.

We here at GeeksToGo will not assist you with issues relating to P2P file sharing programs. While many of these programs are-in-and of themselve legal, most things aquired by their use are not. Instead of attempting to differentiate between the legal use of P2P programs and the illegal use thereof, we have decided to stop helping with issues regarding this software. It is also in your best interest to know that many P2P software packages come bundled with spyware/malware/virii and that their use greatly increases the chances of your computer becoming infected. I strongly suggest that you uninstall these programs and refrain from using them at all costs.
