View Full Version : Seeding

I use BitTornado 0.3.17 and don't seem to seed as fast as some of you. I have a fast computer and router, and great internet service.

Is there any way to speed up seeding, not only to improve my ratio, but to 'share the music' faster as well?

Seeding speeds really depend on many things:
- how many shows you are seeding
- how many shows you are downloading
- how many seeders there are on a show vs how many leechers
- whether you are manually capping your speeds
- whether other users are capping their speeds

So, it's really hard to answer your general question. For me, the best thing to do is only seed one or two shows at a time. If I'm downloading a show, I'll only seed one other show (since I'm also seeding the show I'm downloading). Since I can only upload at about 80 kBps, that gives each show about 40 kBps of my upload speed.

for one, it looks like yer firewalled...you need to forward your ports, both in yer comp's firewall, as well as yer router if on one...read these link for more info:
