the tracker is registering you as being firewalled, see for info:

and there aren't many members (leechers) on them as well.

make sure yer upload speed is set to unlimited in yer bt client

but you'll need to forward the proper ports [as assigned in yer bt client] on both the comp's firewall AND the router...other wise no, not much will change in regards to speed

or where can i look them up?

A: listen to your dad and do nothing or..
B: wait until he is gone and do some experimenting yourself..

if B (or ask him)

can i change something at my computer that the upload rate get higher?

read this faq http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/faq.php?faq=bittorrent#faq_port_forwarding and if that doesn't help you, do some reading in the Technobabble (http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=4) section of this site, you can find a lot of info there.

like AAR.oner said the ports have to be proper forwarded. If you use uTorrent you can find your port number etc. under options - preferences. Under options - speedguide you can test if your port is forwarded properly.

BTW may you can better post about this in the Technobabble section (or a mod should move this thread)

i'll move this thread to Technobabble :thumbsup

what bt client do you use?

Just tell your dad p2p is not evil and you need to forward a port on the router.

Assuming that this user is German-native (just a thought...given the username...), he might as well PM me. In German. :thumbsup

Ich ahne, worauf das jetzt wieder hinausläuft, Kömmander...er is noch neu und unschuldig. Noch mehr polnische Schlauchtitten bzw. Vergleiche zwischen dem deutschen Moderator und Hitler sind nicht unbedingt nötig.

Okay, polnische Schläuche darfst Du, wenn Du unbedingt mußt.

Okay, i looked up the ports and allowed them in the router but the upload is just at 40 kb/s. It's better but not so high, instead the download can be up to 700 kb/s .

Hope i don't get banned :/ I try seeding as much as I can...

2010-06-08, 12:39 PM
thats normal speeds for DSL or similar

my average down is approx 600kB/s and up is 50kb/s max...you should have no problem keeping a decent ratio and we don't enforce any ratio minimums so you won't get banned...just leave yer torrents running until you've u/led the same amount you d/led

2010-06-08, 01:00 PM
okay, thank you =)

What is your OS / BitTorrent client version / router model number / firewall version?

If you cannot configure the router ports you might consider using a BitTorrent client that supports uTP. On MS Windows that is uTorrent v2/v1.9. On Linux that is KTorrent v4. uTP is a new communications method. Many times uTP can allow you to communicate well even if you are "firewalled."


"uTP in this version has added its own form of STUN, a method of getting incoming connections without direct connectivity to the Internet. This allows µTorrent to punch holes through routers and firewalls to increase connectivity and improve speeds. It is even possible to connect two firewalled peers through uTP's NAT traversal feature."

What is not mentioned above is that both BitTorrent clients must support uTP. Currently only uTorrent and KTorrent properly support uTP. I believe that more clients will support it before 2011.

... but do try to open up your ports first.

700 down & 40 up is not bad. That's what I was getting on cable not too long ago.
