atevewr Posted January 21, 2009 Report Share Posted January 21, 2009 Hi all, I have a doubt which is more general than utorrent or all the clients, basically on the torrent protocol. As per the theory, when i initiate connections for any torrent to the tracker, it gives me a list of other machines hosting the file or downloading it. Now my machine will achieve better performance, if i have a good upload speed, i.e. good upload speed --> the more download speed i 'll get, because the way machines are uploading, slots are given to those machines, who are also uploading more, of course i am not considering DHT right now. so my problem is i get more d/l speed if i upload less i.e. let me discuss my topology first, i am behind an institutional NAT, though i have access to utorrent, bcoz i think i go via a transparent NAT, rather than blocked ports & d/l speeds are pretty low, around 10-200kbps(max), of course depends on the time & the seeders available. Moreover at any point of time, the absolute maximum no of peers i can connect to, is 300, whereas i have configured much more connections.So taking an example, i was downloading a file,When i seed other files(around 10 in number) & d/l this one, i get like d/l=10kbps, u/l=200kbps, & if i stop all my seeding, then i get a 30-40kbps d/l on the same file. Can you please explain me how?? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
