Re: BT Speeds all-of-a-sudden suck

You can keep the firewall closed and just open the port for bt. There are instructions here.

Re: BT Speeds all-of-a-sudden suck

you all are talking about speeds +100!
I never had these!
I'm on os windows XP-> firewall turned off.
I forwarded ports 6881-6885 on my router (can't forward more)
I've 3.3 mb/s download and 256kb/s uploadspeed, (this is a providor thing.)
I'm using TheSHAD0W's EXPERIMENTAL BITTORRENT CL (the latest version.)

For the moment i'm downloading for EZT: U2 las vegas 3 cam DVD:
4 seeds/ 13 leechers.
My downloadspeed is: 43kb/sec
upload: 11 kb/s

Is there something i can do more to speed up the download?
Thanks in advance
Jeanine

Re: BT Speeds all-of-a-sudden suck

Bieke2be, there is probably nothing you can do....your ISP likely has your connection capped pretty low. If you're getting green lights in you BT Client window, then your ports are open and your speed is as high as you can make it.

The only exception to this is to find out if your ISP is intentionally blocking BitTorrent, which some have started to do. There are ways to change over to other ports or mask the data so that they cannot tell that it's BT, but if they are not blocking it then these methods are going to take a lot of time to test for nothing.

Try to find out what your rated speed is from your ISP, and ask them if they limit or block certain protocols/ports.

Re: BT Speeds all-of-a-sudden suck

My ISP is apparently doing something called "packet shaping" to limit the upload speeds for bit torrent. This then, through the inherent characted of BT, limits my download speed as well. Any way around that?

Re: BT Speeds all-of-a-sudden suck

I had a similar problem when my wife installed an Windows 2000 Pro update on my system. I finally fixed it by playing with the port forwarding on our Linksys router. Azureus is running fine now, but I can only get consistent downloads at 80kbs. Anything faster, especially over 120, crashes my pathetic system. Hopefully an upgraded processor/memory will solve that problem. Of course, I STILL cannot download from this site. Only converse with you fine folks. Merry Christmas. rWc

That seems pretty much impossible to me. If they give you problems change bittorrent to use ports 21 or 80, are they going to block ftp and http axx for u too? Secondly, check to make sure when you updated your windows that your network config didnt get messed up. If you are behind a router you should have a static ip on that machine so you can forward the ports to it. I am guessing you already tried that but might as well check.

Re: BT Speeds all-of-a-sudden suck

I checked with my providor, and there are a few ports closed, but not the ports used by Bit Torrent.

I checked the network connections, the XP firewall is still of.
(is there some link i can use to check this? I'm no expert in these matters)
I'm behind a router and I believe everything is ok there.
I've a static ip on, ports are open.
BT client is giving my a green light.

For the moment i'm playing with the ports, i've port 21 open now, gonna wait a bit, and see what my speed is now.
Thanks anyway for the responds
Bieke

Re: BT Speeds all-of-a-sudden suck

You can set bittorrent to use whatever ports you want, I was just using 21 as an example....im suprised ur isp blocks any, the news going around that isp's are blocking ports just plain sucks.

Re: BT Speeds all-of-a-sudden suck

The first way you can tell if you're firewalled is to look at your client...most have a color indicator. It'll be yellow if you're firewalled and green if you're not.

Another good way is to head to either bt.easytree.org or bt.etree.org (different sites ), start a download, and then look at the torrents' full list of peers. Find your username or IP in the list, and it'll tell you if you're firewalled or not.

No, but they could certainly watch how much you're uploading and limit your speeds based on that. From what I gather, doorcoq is a victim of just this kind of treatment, and other ISPs are employiong similar tactics. They like to limit upstreams to give people who are just web-browsers and emails the illusion that they have a fast connection....BT is pushing upstream limits to the max, and they are not going to be happy about that.

Re: BT Speeds all-of-a-sudden suck

Packet Shaping - get used to it. It isn't a problem it is a "Solution".

Here are just 2 companies with devices between you and your good dl speeds:

http://www.ellacoya.com/solutions/

and the original from back in the internet boom times:

http://www.packeteer.com/resources/prod-sol/PSISPDS.pdf

And if you have a problem with that brother, maybe you need some "Morality Shaping"

Re: BT Speeds all-of-a-sudden suck

who the fuck are you, the spokesman for the cable companies? Where is the "morality" in selling someone a service and then unilaterally changing the terms of agreement without notification (or even verification), offering no price reduction for a limited service, etc.?
