    Hello,
    I rented a leeware seedbox some days ago, and i'm facing some problems.

    I try to download the files from the seedbox to my PC via SFTP (cuteftp pro), but the speeds i get are not good (not even 1/4 of my download speed ) although the leeware speeds are great in seeding 2-4 MB/sec.

    In any torrent site i can see max speeds about 210 kB/sec and from leeware only 50-60 kB with FTP.

    I remember that i saw in a topic that you can make your torrents in leeware, and seed them to your PC. Can anyone help me please with that, or give me any other idea how to download with full speed?

    this is because the implementation of SFTP (secure FTP), try download several files the same time and you will max out your speed

    But... why not to download from there, and not "ruin" your ratio to download again to home PC?

    It must be a way. Damn leeware...

    Can i create my torrents, without a tracker announce and download that? Or can i "baptise" a tracker in my leeware, to do the downloading from there?

    yum install vsftpd
    vi /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf (tweak settings)
    download IDM or FDM or any other multi-section download manager
    you should max out your connection

    what do you mean pieces???
    I used Filezilla for FTP, when I was downloading a file, the download was around 25kb/s, when I added a second file, it was being downloaded at 25kb/s too, so 50kb/s, and so go on..
    I don't know what's the problem, that's worked for me

    Search the forum for this topic.
    There are some good threads about it..
    You need to install a FTP Server to download with acceptable speed.
    1. Open Putty and connect
    2. type in putty "yum -y install vsftpd" (everything without the " )
    3. after the installation, type "/ect/init.d/vsftpd start"
    4. then you can reach the server "ftp://vpsXXX.leeware.com/"
    5. Install FDM (Free Download Manager)
    6. And the rest you will understand yourself

    Have fun

    OK this is a good start!

    Do you know how much space the ftpserver will take in the hard disk?

    Because 20 GB minus this, minus that is something less than 16 GB right?

    If it takes too much space and memory/CPU then maybe it's not worth it

    I think the FTP Server is a MUST for every leeware user.
    Its simply because the sFTP Speeds suxx very much and i dont think, that you want to download a 700mb movie for 7 hours i think.
    The FTP Server is absolutly worth it and it dont takes so much
