Some things to try:
  • Which OS and clients are you trying?
  • Another thing to check might be what ports your setup uses, in particular the ports used for the DHT communications. I manually poked holes through the router firewall, creating a port range for torrenting, and set up that specific port range in the client.
  • Check the Windows firewall if you're using that, or the Linux/MacOS firewall if you're using that. You may have to add exceptions to those for your torrent clients, though that doesn't make sense given you can use plain torrents.
  • Check UPnP's status in the torrent client and router too.

Tixati validates the magnet link right in the dialog box, red for "gotta remove/add something" or green for "Let's go" (a la Lemmings). For everything else I'd suggest a mix of wireshark (to see if the clients are even sending stuff out) and perhaps hexdump on the link you're pasting into the box.

Full debugging would literally be a record of config file for torrent client, and every mouse click and menu interaction, it's surprising how often this turns up a PEBKAC moment.
