Stedearden1 Posted July 29, 2008 Report Share Posted July 29, 2008 Ok so i followed the steps on www.portforward.com to forward the port im using for utorrent and after doing so i restarted my computer but i am still getting a red light, the only thing it seems to have affected is the upload speed which is averaging around 200kb/s whilst my download speed is only averaging 30kb/s. I also made sure my firewall was not blocking utorrent which it isnt. My options in Preferences:General -> Check for updates - ticked Confirm when deleting torrents - ticked Show confirmation dialog on exit - ticked Close to tray - ticked Always show tray icon - ticked Show balloon notifications in tray - ticked Minimize to tray - ticked Single click on tray icon to open - not ticked Always activate when clicked - ticked Alternate list background color - not ticked Show current speed in the title bar - not ticked Show graphical progress bar - ticked Show speed limits in the status bar - not ticked Check association on startup - ticked Start utorrent on system startup - not tickedDownloads -> Don't start the download automatically - not ticked Activate the program window - ticked Show a window that displays the files inside the torrent - ticked Append .!ut to incomplete files - not ticked Pre-allocate all files - not ticked Prevent standby if there are active torrents - tickedConnection -> Port used for incoming connections - 3563 Randomize port each time utorrent starts - not ticked Enable UPnP port mapping - ticked Enable NAT-PMP port mapping - ticked Add utorrent to windows firewall exceptions - ticked Proxy server - none Maximum upload rate - 2240 Alternate upload rate - 0 Maximum download rate [0: unlimited] - 0BitTorrent -> Global maxumum number of connections - 850 Maximum number of connected peers per torrent - 125 Number of upload slots per torrent - 30 Use additional upload slots if upload speed < 90% - ticked Enable DHT Network - ticked Enable DHT for new torrents - ticked Enable Local Peer Discovery - ticked Ask tracker for scrape information - ticked Enable Peer Exchange - ticked Limit local peer bandwidth - not ticked Protocol Encryption - Disabled Allow incoming legacy connections - tickedQueueing -> Maximum number of active torrents (upload or download) - 15 Maximum number of active downloads - 15 Ratio is: <= 150% or seeding time is: Ignore Seeding tasks have higher priority than downloading tasks - not ticked Limit the upload rate to: [0: stop] - not ticked 4kB/sScheduler -> Enable Scheduler - not tickedOther - > Allow utorrent to send anonymous version number and random id when checking for new version - ticked Auto-update to beta versionsAdvanced -> All defaults - i heard its better not to mess about with them.If anyone has any suggestions how i can get the green light and improve my download speed please let me know.
