I have been using BitTorrent for quite a while, at least from 2003. I was a WinXP user and have used most clients, last one was the amazing utorrent.
I finally decided to make the "switch" to Mac and love it. However finding my torrent experience has not been so great :-( slow downloads, and no really good client. I can run utorrent under windows and easily get 500kb++ on various torrents. If I do the same under Mac I get about 50-60kb. I am sure its a config / setting issue.
I have some questions.
1. In windows you have to hack the tcpip.sys file to allow more than 10 connections, does any connection limit exist in Mac ? I also used to increase my half open connections to 70 (tcpip.sys limit was 100)
2. Is their a set of settings I should use - I am back using Azureus under Mac, I tried tranmission and although the UI was nice - real lack of options.
Thanks for any help :-)
