peers connect but dont talk


Recommended Posts

When I am seeding I often find that there are connected peers who aren't receiving data, or peers in the swarm that don't connect to me.

I am connectable, and I have no trouble with upload or download speeds in torrents that I am downloading.

This happens even when no torrents are active, so its not a question of my client being too busy. It happens even in swarms where I am the only seed so its not like peers are seeing a "better" seed to talk to.

Is it safe to say that it's not me, it's them? I do have a firewall (Zone Alarm) but it isn't blocking connections and it doesn't seem to matter if I shut it down. Is there anything I can do to improve the situation? I want to seed. Could it be the tracker?

Any clues would be nice.
