Muhahaha...I now have your IP...expect a DDoS attack shortly... :P

Actually ppp-70-245-79-254.dsl.hstntx.swbell.net is not my IP :P I'm on a remote terminal silly... Don't you know anything about tracerts? If you can knock out that router I would be impressed though :) I think you'd need at least 155mbps. Good luck with that :D

i tried 3 different times with different versions too

i've been waiting for cfosspeed to calibrate for 4-5 days but it didn't the trial period with end until it starts working.. so stupid.. i doubt that it will work even after 25 days..the only good thing was that it was measuring my speed.. :P

It doesnt inform you that the calibration is done or anything.

It just adjusts to your speeds while calibrating. use "spd speed" in the console to see the current limits.

try this procedure (-:

How do I optimally calibrate cFosSpeed? :cool:

:: Clear the traffic shaping data by clicking on "clear calibration data"

:: Make a short full-speed download. (5-10 seconds)

:: Make a longer full-speed upload (30 sec - 1 min).

It is important that this upload is as fast as possible, i.e. that the server you're sending to is near and powerful (like your mail server or some fast FTP server). moreover, it is important that you have no downloads running while you do this upload. with an upstream of 256 kbit/s you need to send some 2 mbyte to the other side.

:: That's it.

The connection is well calibrated if you have a full-blast upload and still have low ping times (both can be watched in the status window).

Is there a version of cfosspeed for Windows 98? On the Google search there are web sites stating there are such sites, but the links lead you to versions for later windows

That's what I originally thought... but when I read this, I only became more confused... it seems to imply that cFosSpeed can do things that cFos cannot, and vice-versa O.o

cFos is for dial-up, ISDN, and broadband connections that require logging in on your computer.

cFosSpeed is for everyone else.

They're the same otherwise.

Meh that'd put me with the cFosSpeed category.... oh well, I'll just stick to my plain ol' unoptimized connection =P

I seed uncapped and my ping time goes up 10-20ms.

So uh, yeah.

And I was running torrents, emule and DC++ and downloading off HTTP at basically full speed down and up once for about 12 hours.

It really works. XD

I have a couple of questions about this...

1) If I uncap my upload speeds then would I be able to get better speeds (or it doesn't matter when you are using cfosspeed?)

2)Should I allow my hardware firewall to receive ping from the internet? If i understood correctly, I should allow cfosspeed to ping but not receive ping.

3)Does anybody know a fast server? I am trying to find a fast server since I installed cfosspeed but the fastest i can download is 30kB while I have a 512kb dsl connection (that should be about 60kBs)

4)Should I prioritize uTorrent to Highest in Cfosspeed or leave it to normal?

1) When downloading in µTorrent, you should still cap your upload, but if seeding, you can uncap it (you also don't need to cap it if downloading in other programs)

2) Not needed.

3) Microsoft's servers. http://download.microsoft.com/download/1/6/5/165b076b-aaa9-443d-84f0-73cf11fdcdf8/WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU.exe

4) All P2P apps should be Lower priority, including µT. FTP, HTTP, and SMTP are already prioritized, as are a lot of programs.

I am trying to find a fast server since I installed cFos-Speed but the fastest i can download is 30 kB/s while I have a 512kb dsl connection (that should be about 60 kB/s)

1) When downloading in µTorrent, you should still cap your upload ...

3) Microsoft's servers. http://download.microsoft.com/download/1/6/5/165b076b-aaa9-443d-84f0-73cf11fdcdf8/WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU.exe

1) Cap to 5 kB/s and in most cases you'll reach your maximum - after a few minutes increase UL in 1 kB/s-steps while watching speed-graph :)

3) i think u meant a torrent-server like this (-:

http://distribution.openoffice.org/p2p/index.html

or:

http://borft.student.utwente.nl/~adrian/bt.php

with an actual torrent u will definitively reach ur maximum :cool:

about the 30 kB/s-problem (-:

- cFos is working hard on it ,-)

- 4 the moment catch the latest beta 1085 @ www.cfos.de/beta

it works fantastic & extremly stable :)

if anyone have some ideas about the 'half-speed-problem' ,-) cFos would be happy to solve it for us :cool:

He wasn't referring to torrent speeds, he was trying to find a fast HTTP server.

Use a download accelerator and like 10 threads on that Microsoft download link, should work. :P

Downloaded this program about a week ago and it has been smooth sailing since.

Before I'd have to keep my upload capped 10-20k/sec lower than my limit to keep from saturating my connection. With cfos everything is uncapped and I still get 40-50pings in CS; I love this program =)

I still think it'd make sense to cap upload speed only as high as possible at absolute best.

Another weird thing would be if you have use extra upload slots if bandwidth <90% checked...because cFosSpeed might be holding µTorrent's upload speed below the 90% value, µTorrent might be constantly opening new upload slots -- at least up to some set limit.
