Re: Question about peers in a swarm...

Everything looks fine on the Phish show. You've been on the show for a bit over a day and uploaded and downloaded a bit over 2 GB. That's not bad at all. You are showing as firewalled. You may want to go to and check port 6881 there (that is the port you are showing up as using). I would suggest changing ports though since that is a well known bittorrent port and some ISPs are getting wise to that and may be actively blocking it. I'd pick a port between 40,000 and 50,000. Make sure you input that port into BitTorrent, your router, and your firewall (if you use one).
