CyberSitter & Torrents

I run Azureus as my client, and had been having no problems at all for quite some time. Recently, my wife installed CyberSitter on the computer to keep the little ones "safe". Now I am having issues.

All of a sudden torrents are acting strange. They will download more info "by a couple of gigs even" than is is the actual file, but will never complete. Also, speeds seem to slow down very quickly now.

What can I do? Does anyone know how to solve this problem without removing the CyberSitter?

Brett

Re: CyberSitter & Torrents

are your ports forwarded?

portforward.com

also, it sounds like you're downloading a lot of bad chunks... that's about all I can think of

hope this helps

Re: CyberSitter & Torrents

Searching on Google...turned up no fixes other then disabling the software. Seems quite a few other people running BT and CyberSitter are having the same problem.

Re: CyberSitter & Torrents

Probably because most people associate bt with illegal music or video downloads or porn??
(whenever I tell people that I trade lots of music online they usually just assume that it's illegal, so I have to specifically tell people that there is such a thing as legal music downloads ...)

i tried searching on google and was not able to find anything of relevance. could you give me some links, or perhaps tell me what search terms you used?

more importantly, does anyone know of any programs vaguely similar to CyberSitter that will not interfere with BT? it is very important to my wife for the computer and children to be protected, but very important to me to keep the music and dvds coming. basically we just need to block some specific sites and terms, not have alot of filtering going on. thanks for the help.

Well, the music will last forever, and 50% of all marriages end in divorce... so if you gotta choose...

Oh I don't know... In 10 years he's going to have unruly tennagers, his wife won't cook for him anymore, she'll tell him to keep his music down and have a constant headache and he'll think back about some chick on some message board who's advice he wished he had taken.
