    Hello..

    I just purchased a seedbox with wtorrent/rtorrent installed in it, but I got a problem

    When I add torrent it function normally, but the problem is the number of peers

    in the details page it says the min number is 2 and max is 20 which is too low for seeding settings

    how can I change that?

    thanks

    Without more info on the machine (specs and such), I highly doubt that 20 is "too low".

    I didn't ask if I should raise it or not, but rather how..
    you shouldn't bother with specs

    if you log on with your user, you need to find out under which rtorrent ist running.
    ps -ef|grep rtorrent should print something like this
    <username> 2450 2432 0 Jul04 pts/1 00:16:48 rtorrent
    and in the home directory of this user (usally /home/<username>, or if its root /root) there should be a .rtorrent.rc .
    if not create one with your favorite editor and place following in it
    min_peers = 40
    max_peers = 100

    thats it.

    ofc you have to restart rtorrent.
