Re: downloading/uploading problem

First off, you are firewalled, which means you may not transfer data with anyone else who is firewalled. On that torrent, there are only two people not firewalled and five who are (including you), which means you may only connect to two of those peers. What this also means, which is really important here, is that the one seeder who is NOT firewalled, must transfer that same information to every single one of you firewalled people since you are not sharing with each other. This makes downloading especially slow because that means instead of sharing with one person and that person sharing what they have with everyone else, the seeder must share the same thing over and over again before they share something new.

If you really think your files are complete, then try running the fingerprint file on them (the ffp). I am pretty positive that you are only 65% complete just like the rest of the users on that seed. is your friend:
