If you just do it from home, then you are limited to the speeds of your ISP, so you are not gaining a thing. You need to use a server that has a faster connection.... but stay away from the TTD servers or you will piss off the users!

That would be great! I will also do some research myself this weekend, I am sure I SHOULD be able to figure it out.

Sure, you could do that. Part of my deal is that Comcast messes with my torrents AND I had this server that was rather lonely and paid for. So, I get the best of both worlds, no Comcast interference and faster speeds. If you hook up at home, you will still be limited by your broadband connection.

Good to hear this is confirmed again.

how much are you paying for dedicated servers just to download stuff ?
then you need to FTP/transfer the files back to your local workstation.. correct?
thats kinda like downloading twice isnt it?


i think ill stick with the 20Mbps/20Mbps Fios for $55 a month.
a T1 connection is 1.544 Mbps
I seem to recall my server has 1000 Mbps. I do download twice, although a recent ~600mb show took about 7 mins at 2500-3000 kB/s (there were 100+ seeders). Using SECURE FTP, I avoid Comcast throttling and get 1000 kB/s from the server to my workstation. It took 18 minutes. So, a total of 25 minutes. By the time I had burned the show, I had shared it 9 times already (900%). I love sharing!
