      The standard BT clients does offer those options, but it’s far from friendly. (You have to do it from the command-line.)

      You should have read the FasterFiles demo page more carefully. They were using Azureus custom software to seed the demo, and Azureus itself is an excellent client with loads of options and a friendly interface.

        This is your problem. 15KB/s is maxing out a 128k line. You need to keep the upload capped to 12KB/s or less otherwise there's no room for the ACK packets so the download gets choked.

            Average: (512 ADSL)

            30-35 Up

            14-18 Down

            Gotta admit I felt a bit ripped off .... but it took 3 hours and I got an hour in before bed .... no probs really.

            Still ... glad to see it wasn't just me.

                Dude, instead of using S**rN**a, download from HTTP. I got a steady speed of 97Kb/s and it took me about 2 hours to download (with pausing etc.)

                    80% of the people on BT expected to DL at their max while uploading at their max. Most people have 4/5x as much download bandwidth as upload... not enough to go around when there are only a few people seeding.

                    Winthin 5 mins of release there wre about 20 HTTP mirrors, I just picked a nice yet obscure one (all the large DL mirrors were being hammered), and i got a full speed download.

                    Torrent is not the "godsend" that a lot of people preach it is.

                      I was getting an amazing display of data packet transfers totalling about 6 k/sec.

                      However, everyone seemed to be getting from me ok, with my upload running at about 20 k/sec.

                      It's times like these I have a FP subscription, was only getting 60k/sec from them, but I had a CoD war whilst I was downloading it anways, so I didn't mind how long it was taken.

                        I got raped for 2 hrs on bit torrent, then it posted on usenet and I got the demo in 12 and a half minutes.

                          80 KB/s down, 16 up.

                          Mainly because 20 is my max up.

                          See, you limit the upload to allow handshaking, and you get plenty of down.

                            I was using the Java client and set my upload to 10 max and I was getting an average of 100k down. It took about 40 minutes to download the whole thing so I am not complaining.

                                same here, i experimented a little, and if i gave every torrent 9kb/sec upload, the download would be at its top
                                i'm not risking getting WL by telling what stuff i downloaded besides teh demo though
