kitano Posted March 15, 2008 Report Share Posted March 15, 2008 Hi, just a quick noob-ish question from a first time Torrent user. (Been using Emule for the last 5 years)I did a speed test recently and got 448 kbps upstream, 4768 kbps downstream.So for uTorrent's speed setting, is it ok for me to put 35kb/s as an upload limit for an individual file? (I'm only downloading 1 file at the moment) The speed guide currently has the following statistics:Upload limit: 280kB/sUpload slots: 8Connections: 100Connections global: 750Max active torrents: 9Max active downloads: 8Am I making the best of my connection and getting the best possible download speed with that setting? I've also ticked the 'limit local peer bandwidth' box so the upload limit actually works, when previously I noticed upload went past 35kb/s.Other details:Windows XP SP2UTorrent 126.96.36.199gig RAMPort forwarded correctlyThanks for your help.EDIT: Actually, I've realised on the speed guide, the 'xx's on the speed chart are probably download rates, right? In which case the current upload limit in my speed guide is a bit...over the top. If I choose xx/384k, the stats say 'max active torrents' as 3. Does this mean I can only download 3 files at a time? Sorry for the noob questions. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
