Having Trouble Seeding

Fairly recently, and for no reason I can figure out, I've been having trouble seeding. While I used to be able to seed indefinitely, my seeds now seem to stop uploading now after a small while. I look and see that there are still leechers, so I know others are uploading, but now mine "die" after maybe 7 or 10 or 15%. I'm firewalled (and always have been), but still been able to upload at up to 30kbs. My ratio is suffering, and frankly I feel badly about it. If anybody knows how to make some changes (open the ports completely to these sites or whatever), I'd appreciate it.

Re: Having Trouble Seeding

Yeah, what bt client are you using and have you upgraded it lately? Some clients allow you to set a control that will stop seeding after a certain amount. You may want to look and see if your client has that control and if you've somehow accidentally set it.

I'm on a PC, using version 4.4.1. Upgraded to it fairly recently. No finding any settings to change. The one I've got is set to "seed indefinitely".

Re: Having Trouble Seeding

In Preferences > Queue, do you have anything set there? That is where you could possibily have it set to stop uploading after a certain time.

Re: Having Trouble Seeding

I don't have "preferences>>>queue", but under "view>>>settings>>>seeding" I have it set to seed indefinitely.

Re: Having Trouble Seeding

Since I can't get any answers about this, I thought perhaps downloading a new client might be a good way to go. Any suggestions on the best.....(Lynne)?

Re: Having Trouble Seeding

A lot of users are starting to use utorrent as their client on the PC (there is a link in the software part of the FAQ for it). I don't have regular bittorrent on my PC, only on my Mac and I would have thought the preferences/settings would be the same since my bittorrent client is also version 4.4.1.

So, you might want to give utorrent a try and see if that helps out.
