And it dawned on me that it could be from there. And yes, to the last question -- you uploaded more than you downloaded, which is good for BitTorrent. I attempted to download a legitimate and legal torrent Ubuntu to see if the problem also occurred with legitimate torrents. This does not have that security issue, but involves going through several steps to accomplish. We used it to describe someone who downloads things but never uploads. Have qBittorrent running while testing the port.
There are some programs that claim to optimize speed in qBittorrent. If you're dealing with private trackers, the problems are even worse. I have been torrenting for years and this one has stumped me. I need to go read up on SuperSeeding and turn on that darn Availability column in Utorrent. On the other hand, if you plan on streaming a movie or playing a bandwidth intensive multiplayer game then every little bit of bandwidth makes an impact.
Enter your average upload speed in the appropriate box The calculator will automatically give the proper figures to adjust bandwidth and queue options in qBittorrent. Direct connection would be faster, but I can still get the data, it will just bounce around a bit and eventually find its way to my client, is that right? You post is much needed and appreciated. The larger the swarm, the faster the download. Such programs are a scam and generally contain adware or spyware. An indexer is a website that hosts torrent files for download. Hopefully this is the last time the problem appears.
Each member of the swarm contributes a small amount of bandwidth to the group. I have not had problems before and downloaded loads of things but my computer had a bit of a spazz a few weeks ago and wiped all my previous downloads. I came here seeking the same answer as dudeboy but as I read this thread there was something that kept driving me nuts. There should only be one program per port or things can get messy. It's been 5 minutes since I started it and no one is downloading from me. Thank you for taking the time.
Hopefully we'll get an idea why it is using port 0. Since this is not an ideal world and the numbers are updated infrequently you can safely ignore these. You can see this in the Ratio column. Build time: Tue Apr 5 21:34:23 2016. The more upload you give, the more download you will get from other peers. But I greatly appreciate the explanations. So piratebay is an indexer, but not a tracker.
Ratio is what you get when you divide the amount of data you've uploaded by the amount of data you've downloaded -- it has nothing to do with what other peers there are. For example, right now, I see 654 peers on a torrent, in the Trackers tab, Opentrackr can see 200 peers. On startup, it is very common for qbittorrent to report zero seeds on all torrents. Try getting your facts straight. I don't know how much more obvious I can make this. The total number of peers is incorrect, at least when compared to what's reported in the tracker's web interface.
This calculator was created by the8472 a to Vuze fka Azureus and part of the team that created. When seeding, this should be 0 because people with 100% of the file don't need the file anymore. After a leech or a peer finishes downloading a file, they automatically become a seed. Programs in your computer that communicate to the outside will use ports to send information and to receive it. Everything works perfectly when I download from torrents using private trackers. They are also uploading the file as they download it, albeit at a usually much lower rate than the speed with which they are downloading it. Once you're back up and running, restart qBittorrent manually and make sure all your torrents are paused since you don't know which one is hijacking the engine.
I don't have a clear solution for this, in my case changing the configuration of the proxy and restarting both proxy and Bittorrent eventually solved it. I'm completely stumped why the existing torrent is working fine, but no new ones seem to. This is the number of peers we know of in total, including banned peers and peers that we have failed to connect to. I seem to be having a really strange and weird issue with utorrent 3. For example, a torrent with 100 seeders and 500 leechers where 20% of the swarm is comprised of seeders is likely to be faster than a torrent with 1,000 seeders and 10,000 leechers where 10% of the swarm is comprised of seeders. It could also include Seeds and Peers that are not currently connected.
Ultima Said: dudeboyz: All peers are seeds in the making if they're all aiming to download 100% of the data. I'll read through this and try to digest it. Exiting out of your Bittorent client will take your torrent off the network, preventing you from seeding it and contributing bandwidth to other downloaders. The remote clients, seeing that you upload slowly, look for better alternatives. When a peer is connected, he downloads the pieces he does not have and uploads the pieces he does have. However, torrenting terminology is somewhat confusing.
