Thread: Bitcomet what do the headers mean?

  1. #1
    In the "peers" window there are the following headers left to right

    1. IP = IP adress of conected peer
    2. % = percentage of file connected peer has available
    3. KB/s Dn = ? Presumably my dn speed from this peer
    4. KB/s Up = ? " my upload speed to this peer
    5. Downloaded = presumably how much I have downloaded from this peer
    6. Uploaded = " " " " " uploaded to this peer
    7. initiation = ? (Remote/local) what do these mean?
    8. KB/s peer Dn = ????


    Am I supposed to look at field 8 and work out from this somehow people who have high download speed but low upload speed (relative to the % field ofcourse)...and from this decide someone is downloading fast but not uploading, and so block the peer IP.

    No one here uses bit comet and knows what they mean? And there isn't a similar layout in azareus?

    used to use bitcomet long ago....stopped using it because many trackers band it and i think you should do the same ...
    regarding 7) have a look @ this post ...

    why did they ban BC? and what does it mean if a tracker bans it?

    Thanks for 7.

    Also, how exactly does one know if your client is banned? Is there an appropriate error message?

    no matter what reason it is , bc is banned from several private sites for sure.
    utorrent is the best choice now for private sites.

    if you use bc and the site ban it, maybe you will be banned.

    you can know what client is banned from faq.

    seems it means "who is the first to start connecting"

    you connect to that peer,
    or that peer connect to you first. just my guess.

    it's best not to block anyone, and let the bittorrent protocol handle it by itself.

    yes, there would be an error message from the tracker.

    Now this is getting interesting. I have seen a few error messages but really didn't know what they meant, usually something about non-valid passkey, or that I'm not registered. Is this the error you mean? Or will it say something about bc or client status? I'd really like to know because I'm quite happy with bc and am reluctant to change. Many thanks.

    @victord66 check the faq or forum carefully, you will find the info.

    if you keep using the banned client, you will be banned.
