Check out my settings. Advice Maybee?


Recommended Posts

First of all, this has been discussed several times already. And second, make sure you find a torrent with good seeder:leecher ratio, since it all depends on which peers you connect to. And the only advice I could give is to increase the upload slots to at least 10 per torrent since peers who are downloading from you are more likely to upload to you as well.

Just a few tips:

I wouldn't recommend a Global maximum upload rate of more than 20KB/sec on a 256kbps upstream.

If you are using Windows XP SP2 go to http://www.lvllord.de/ and apply the Event ID 4226 Patcher (4226 fix) to raise the number of concurrent TCP connect attempts, 50 should suffice, then go to the net.max_halfopen setting under Advanced Options and change it to 50. This will help you connect to more clients faster.

It's a good idea that your current upload slots have a speed of at least 3KB/sec each because having dozens of upload slots that only offer 0.5KB/sec each is pointless/wasteful. Just use the formula upload rate (KB) / 3 to get the optimum number of upload slots, which in this case would be 7 globally at the most.

Forward the port(s) yourself if possible as it's a lot more reliable than UPnP.
