View Full Version : Azureus Help?

2007-06-01, 02:34 AM
It seems my connection to leechers when seeding gets reset often. The tracker recognizes me and the leechers, but my upload bar will jump up to 40.0 KB/s, and then constantly plummet until it hits zero, wait a minute on zero, then connect for another few seconds then repeat. Any suggestions, I am not firewalled and I am running Azureus on Windows....

I am baffled :wtf:

Often leechers jump between 0(4) and 1(4) and 4(4) when the drop happens. It happens about 3 or 4 times a minute.....

That used to happen to me when I used Azureus and had too many torrents going at once (about 4 or 5). My connection used to drop periodically when I used Azureus too. I went back to Bittornado 3.18 (with max peer connections limited to 20) and now usually have 3 torrents going at once with no problems. Make sure you are using encryption and a port above 50,000 so your ISP doesn't throttle/interfere you.

I am trying out Utorrent

Yeah, any port above 50,000. I've heard bad things about UTorrent. It is not open source, so you don't know what is in the code. It has also had ties to an anti-peer to peer organization at one point. So it might be reporting all of your bittorrent activity back to an anti peer to peer organization.

Well, any port between 50,000 and 60,000. I don't know if you can use ports above 60,000.

I think you can use ports up to 64,xxx, but I'm not sure of the exact number. I usually tell people to pick one between 50,000 and 60,000 and things should be fine.

Voodoo, I'm not sure why that is happening. I've seen it happen to me also on some trackers. It happens constantly when I'm on a torrent with lots of seeders - it seems the leechers connect, then disconnect, then connect, etc. and then the speed goes up, then down, then up... I solved the problem by just not watching it. :D

good call. Utorrent has a scheduler, and when bitTorrent is shamed upon (my Dad works from home), having a program that automatically turns on after everyone has gone to bed rocks.
