winstonchurch Posted June 1, 2011 Report Share Posted June 1, 2011 I have several torrents I'd like to be uploading to help out my share ratio. I never really understood the Peers number ie. 0(12), which after I looked it up would mean there are 12 people downloading that file, but zero are connected to my computer. If the network is ok and the ports are forwarded correctly, what is keeping my computer from connecting to these 12 people? I always see this and for years I was wondering if there was settings within utorrent or Azureus or Bitcomet that would make the opportunity to connect to these people instead of seeing a big zero.EDIT: within the time it took to type this, now I am seeing Peers: 0(17) which sucks as that is 17 people I'd like to be able to be uploading to. An observation I have made is it seems the best success I have in uploading is when the torrent is new and I am one of the first to jump on it. Sometimes I will get a .5 share ratio if I am lucky by the time I finish downloading the file along with the other peers. Then as it is seeding sometimes it will continue for a little while. But then as time goes on I will still see several peers within the parenthesis but none are connected to me. What can I do to make them available to connect to?
