2 Connections: One for Upload, second for download


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've two connection, ADSL (2.5mbps DOWN, 512 UP) and Cable (256 Down, 56 UP). Uploads are free on ADSL, Cable however is truly unlimited.

I'm wondering if there is any way to upload using ADSL and download using Cable? since there seems to be some amount of inward data transfer even while uploading and the ADSL is highly expensive so I wanted to use Cable for that.

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Hate to burst bubbles here, but I'm pretty sure µTorrent is hard-coded to expect to be working from only 1 internet ip address. At the very least, peers and seeds will not reward the downloading internet ip for what the uploading internet ip is giving it.

The BitTorrent protocol itself pretty much expects only 1 internet ip "bound" to a particular BitTorrent client.

This isn't to say you can't run the same torrent across both internet connections, just that you can't "bind" them in the sense that others will see them as a single connection.
