Hi,
I am just wondering if any of you know any tricks that help downloads go faster with the azaureus software. I know there has to be some. I truly appreciate anyone's response.
Thanks

P.S I am in love with tradersden and bt in general. Rock on!

I doubt it has anything to do with Azureus.

Download speeds are more a function of the # of peers in the swarm and firewall issues.

I'm using Auzureus and everything was fine. 75 k and now tonight I see I am again firewalled. I have opened ports, disabled MS firewall and now I see in the Stats colun I am once again firewalled. Help!!!!!!

Weren't you in another thread? :lol

I'd try stopping and restarting the torrent - or if you just forwarded your ports, restarting your computer altogether.

I think I saw where some people are always shown as firewalled for some reason or another...

What's your upload speed like?

I know almost nothing about this stuff, but I just downloaded Azareus today and I saw on their Help page about waiting 48 hours to use it after forwarding your ports.
It'll be 48 hours for me by 3PM Wednesday so that's when I'll try again and find out.

Thats crap! Did you really see it say that? It's hog-wash!

Setting up ANY BT client is easy so long as you pay attention and set it up correctly.
First thing, ditch any of the new versions and get 2.2.0.2
Versions above that are CPU hogs in MANY cases.Notice I didnt say ALL ;)

Second, know what you have blocking you from a direct connection.Be it a firewall and/or router.
There are many links showing how to set up most routers and firewalls.
Another thing to know is your ACTUAL IP ADDRESS
You can get that by using command prompt and typing ipconfig and it will be the FIRST IP number you see.This is the ACTUAL IP OF YOUR COMPUTER that the router/firewall see's

You can get all the info you need HERE (http://azureus.aelitis.com/wiki/index.php/PortForwarding)
It may take a few try's and a few times reading it over again to understand it, but you'll get it.
It really isnt that hard to get your BT client working.
Im behind a wireless Linksys with firewall and as many security settings as I can have and was getting an Iron Maiden show the other day at OVER 500kb/s ;)
Granted I am on 7MB cable, but for the average, I get around 60-150kb/s depending on the situation.

That's what it said on the part of the Help page about forwarding ports and running the NAT test. Wait 48 hours after running the test. I couldn't understand why, but that's what it said. It was on the page you get when click on the forwarding ports section after clicking Help.

I'm just hoping that it's saying OK! after I did the NAT test means my problem is solved. But after what you say, I wonder if I wait that long to find out.

Here's the 48 hours bit (http://azureus.aelitis.com/wiki/index.php/PortIsBlacklisted). I think it's a reasonably safe bet that you're not going to have to wait that long :)

That 48hr deal is talking about trackers blacklisting ports 6881-6889 :lol
Nothing to do about setting up Azureus.

You get everything going?
Let me know and if you need help I will.I just set up 3 people new to BT with routers and everything is smooth as ..... as ..... icing on a cake!
