I used to have bittornado working fine, until yesterday when i opened up a torrent to resume it and i got this message:

Problem connecting to tracker - <urlopen error (10049, "can't assign requested address")

Does anyone know how to fix this? It just happened all of a sudden.
Any ideas will be aprreciated.

The tracker is probably down. Keep trying, maybe it will come back.
You can also try to enter the tracker url in a browser.

Looks like others have had a similar problem in this thread:
http://forums.degreez.net/viewtopic.php?p=145#145

but no one seems to have figured out why it occurs or what even causes it.

The tracker is in charge of keeping peer lists and distributing a small random sample of the peer lists to each bittorrent peer that connects to it so the peers can quickly find other peers involved in a transfer.

Click the blue text labelled "Details" in the BitTornado download window and you'll see a box near where it says "Announce URL." That is the tracker URL.
