    hi

    I have another newbie question about downloading from private trackers:

    When i limited the download speed, the upload speed suffered a lot: especially if i set download speed to 1, the upload speed would come close to 0; while without limiting download speed, i could upload much faster. This happened even after i've downloaded the majority files of a torrent set.

    Basically it's like my peers are saying, "if you don't download from me, then i will not accept your upload ". This does not make sense to me.

    Is this a common thing with all private trackers?

    Is this a problem with utorrent only? Are Azureus users noticing the same thing?

    What's a good strategy to limit the download speed without affecting upload speed?

    Thanks

    well i think it doesnt matter what client u use. it depends on your bandwith. i would think that you have adsl, where the download speed is more than the upload speed, and they affect eachother. also, if you max out your download then it will slow down your upload. i dont think this depends on what kind of private tracker u use or which client u use. gl

    I probably didn't make it clear. My upload speed is decent when i max out my download speed. The problem is if i limit download speed, the upload goes down a lot too. And this happens both on a cable modem connection and a 100Mbit.

    It happens and you can't do anything about it. It's the way bittorrent works.

    Typically this would happen when you're downloading something new.
    If you don't have a good portion of the file a great deal ahead of all your peers then what part of your download would anybody want to get from you? They already have those pieces.
    If you continue downloading without limits, you get new pieces to share amongst the rest of your peers, thus your upload goes will go up pretty high.

    Isn't it common sense?
