cannot use bit torrent under windows 2003 vm

Last Modified: 2013-11-21
hi experts,

my set up as below:
host machine: windows 2003 sp2 with latest updates
vitual environment: vmware workstation
guest os: windows server 2003 with latest updates

i am running a windows server 2003 vm and have a bit torrent client on it. i noticed that everytime i start a bt client, it will start downloading stuff a while then after some time, the downloading speed drops to 0. if i restart the download job, it repeat the same (start downloading for a while then stop)

is there anything leads to this behavior? is there anything i need to tweak on the host and guest os to get it working?

many thanks
