    Hey guys,

    Here's the deal. I use Ares, have browze library enabled and have my uploads maximum as high as it'll go (35). I'm also sharing 566 files. The thing is, there's almost ALWAYS NO ONE downloading from me. Is there a particular reason for this? I'm using Peerguardian and was wondering if that has anything to do with it? I've had Ares on for three hours and only four files have been taken from me.

    Any way to boost my uploads?

    Thanks,
    Ricey

    Yeah, I thought about that - but I DO have popular files. :-S


    It doesn't make sense at all. Is it pruely the fact that no ones looking for the files I have? Or COULD it be something else?

    Do you have a router by any chance...

    Maybe people can't get in to your shares because of NAT or firewall?
    Have you routed your ports on your router/firewall/nat/etc?

    Urgent

    Perhaps it its because your upload speed is too low. If you have a 56K modem, you are limited to about 3 KB/s and with DSL or cable, you can do about 20 KB/s.

    Ares seems to favor faster connections.

    same here. no uploads, slow connection or router.

    I have 1mb atm ... and a router. But I don't see why my router would interfere with ares? I don't think my router blocks anything

    You arent really sharing that many files. I have over 1000 files shared in Soulseek, which isnt considered that much compared to the folks with 15000 files or more, and I rarely get downloaded from. I would figure its the same with Ares.
