Thread: Pimp uTorrent on my Seedbox

  1. #1
    Just got the OVH 100mbit Seedbox 3Ghz, 1Gb RAM etc..
    Need an expert help on how to improve my UPLOAD speeds. Using wine+uTorrent. Uploading only to HDbits.
    At this point you expertise on uTorrent tweaking is really what im looking for. I did set up 100mbit in speed test.

    Here is what i need help on what is it/what does it do:

    Preferences > BitTorrent:

    1. Enable DHT Network (for new torrents as well)- when i turn that on i get an impression that my upload speeds get better..

    2. Enable Local peer discovery - what is that? (have it checked now)

    3. Ask tracker for scrape info - does that even affect my upload?

    4. Enable peer exchange - ? (i have it on)

    5. Protocol Encryption - SHould I enable or disable it?

    6. Allow incoming legacy connections - ?

    If there is something else that i didnt mention, please ask, and I'll tell you what my settings are (I probably got it all wrong). I didnt mess up with the ADVANCED settings. Tip me on those as well.

    Now Ive been having problems with my upload since I gotten the server... In the mean time i did turn of the SLA and started messing with the settins above, and my speeds have gotten a bit better, but to me its like a shot in the dark... Have no idea what those features actually do, and really need your expert help here. It's just painful to see other leechers using the same box/provider as me, and connecting way after me, getting more GB uploads and faster speeds

    Look forward to some guru help

    about the 1.
    dont use the DHT network. its not allowed on private trackers.. I think ( iam not 100% sure ) dht is a public network and if you enable it you give the files of the private site to the public.. my opinion turn that off

    for the 5. enable it

    thats all i can help

    Why should I increase cache size to 512MB ? I thought that it only matters when you are downloading (writing) to a hard drive. Does it help the uploads as well??

    Thanks man, got that On now.
    Anything I should mess with in the ADVANCED settings? I noticed that sometimes when there are even 150+ leechers and I'm seeding, I connect to only few of them on a few hours old torrent. Really strange, and I'm sure it has something to do with the settings and/or my speeds which I believe depend on the settings as well.
    Any ideas?

    Disable peer exchange as well as DHT. Never turn those on. If you have comcast i would force encryption if not then leave legacy connection on but still use encryption (Due to isp's doing traffic shaping).

    Excuse Me?
    Didn't Think So!

    Could you please explain why to disable peer exchange?
