I'm currently downloading a "Pink Floyd DVD 1970 04 27" but the dl speed is very slow. It's strange cause there's a lot of seeders and leechers. I've got a fast speed connection and haven't experinced this problem on my ealier dl's. Apparently others have the same problem with this paticular dl. It'll take around 10 days to complete the dl - although theres around 40 seeders right now and 100 leechers.

Any suggestions what might cause this problem? :hmm:

In some occasions you're right. But as I mentioned I haven't had this problem before - although I'm firewalled.
Strange thing is that shortly after I wrote the first post, suddenly my dl speed went up (after 15 hours with very slow speed). Right now everything is back to normal. :thumbsup I have no idea why!

Also depends on how many seeds there are and what speed they have.

Just forward your ports anyway, it helps you and everyone else out.
