Re: Another Uploading Question (Way Too Low)

The other thing you can do is use encrytion - options > connection > transport encrytion . Check the box for Require encrytion and see how that goes (and play with the check boxes there if you still aren't getting better speeds - sorry, I don't use encryption, so I'm not sure which options are the best, so that's why I said play with them.)

I know that those are things you can do on Mac Azureus. (Do you have a link to the suggestions? I can probably find the options if I know what you are looking for. I'm on a mac and use Azureus.)

Thanks alot for your help.

I figured out what the problem is and it isn't really a question of settings
or a problem with my ISP. It seems that the upload speeds I get are
dependent upon how large (how many peers are involved) the torrent
is and how quickly I jump in. I recently jumped into a torrent early and
before I had complete the download I was uploading at about 75K!

So again, thanks for your patience and helping me through the problem.
