Thread: Limiting Upload Rate...

  1. #1
    So my internet provider cut off my service this morning because I had over 400 people connected to one of my ports and was uploading at over 1 meg a second. They said I was running a server which is against ISP policy. It sucks, so... How can I limit my upload to say never go above 500kbs?

    I know the FAQ says:

    How do I limit the amount of bandwidth consumed by BitTorrent?
    Use the --max_upload_rate command line parameter, which takes an upload rate in kilobytes/sec.

    But I don't run the command line, I click on the torrent and it starts. Anyone translate?

    Thanks.

    try to limit it as little as possible. just enough to appease your ISP. after all, sharing supports all of this

    Download Netlimiter and set your bandwidth limits in that. You can set it for the whole connection or just individual applications
