    Currently I'm useing: Azureus

    The problem with all the bittorrent programs is that It refuses to even download at 20kb/s without uploading at about that speed, but when i upload at 20kb/s I can barely download at 10kb/s.
    with 10kb/s upload, i can barely get 50kb/s sometimes.
    Normally I get 150-170kb/s download (off IE downloads) without any upload online.
    Is there a way i can like trick bittorrent into uploading at like 5kb/s or something and get 70kb/s? It would still be shareing after all...
    I hate it when i try to download something with 100s of seeds, but only 10kb/s.

    I use the experimental BitTorrent.

    I have no problem on good torrents getting high download speeds (40+ KB/sec) so long as I am uploading at least 10 KB/sec to at least 4 people.

    For my point of view, I get faster download speeds uploading to MORE people at once than uploading at slightly faster speed.

    In short:
    Better 15 KB/sec upload to 8 users than 20 KB/sec upload to 4 users.

    I also use a bandwidth monitoring program (AnalogX NetStat Live) to see if I'm overrunning my connection.

    BitTorrent seems to run best if started after a reboot and there's no/few other connections being made.

    Do you have a router? I didnt need to configure Zone Alarm Pro, i just configured my router.

    This is for Linksys routers:

    Close Bittorrent Applications first*

    Goto "Port Fowarding" or "Fowarding", then for the program name use "Bittorrent". For the 2 port feilds use "6881" and "6889" (thus it allows ports 6881-6889). Now make sure TCP Protocal and UDP protocal are checked if they are there (if one of the other isnt there, let me know..). Now Make sure the check box on the very Right is checked to Enable this setting. Click Apply.

    Now reopen your bittorrent download.. it will take a min or two, but eventually it will start downloading at 100kb/s or so. Make sure Upload is like set to 2kb-4kb/s , 4 people max upload.

    (oh yea, when the download completes.. help the others out by maxing upload speed and user and let it stay on for an hour or so cause thats how u got yours so fast)


    Make sure u get the Torrent from the latest Suprnova site http://phobal.ca/suprnova for fast download ability.

    but this isnt guarnteed. a lot of torrents dont even have 100+ available bandwidth.. letalone 100KB for you.
    signature removed, check the boardrules.

    well i just did all that, but it still isnt that much faster. My router also had a field that said "Ip address" after the UDP and TCP protocol boxes. it still isnt THAT fast though. I even got one of the most popular torrents from Suprnova
