      Best Torrent program

      Hi

      Just joined Sky & use UTorrent for my torrent d/l...can only get speeds around 30kps & have tried port forwarding without any success.

      Are there any othe torrent programs out there that are easier to configure & am more likely to get the speeds I had before i joined Sky (connected via modem & got speeds over 400kps - those were the days)

      Any ideas ?

      look in tutorials section for a step by step configuration guide to Utorrent this is a fantastic program.

      in the search box at the top search for something called camtia 4 that was the program they used to make the tutorial.

      Re: Best Torrent program

      Which router are you using?

      I use utorrent with no problems and often get in excess of 500 kbs download speed.

      try using portforward.com to see how to forward your port no the router

      Re: Best Torrent program

      Here's a tutorial on setting up BitComet, for the Sagem router, but more or less the same logic is applied.

      Re: Best Torrent program

      i have used many torrent downloads bitcomet, utorrent, bittlord, bittlord2, azuerus,limewire,etc

      have now gone back to bittlord but not the new beta version

      its always been most reliable and fastest for me, cant comment on its use on sky bb as my max connection doesnt start until 31/3/08 but hopefully bittlord will contiue to give excellent service

      BitTyrant works great for me, No need to forward ports if UPnP is working on your router.

      new one to me larger lout

      will give it a try and compare it against bittlod, although i looked at its ome page and its based on azureus 2.5 so dont hold much hope for keeping it over bittlord but il try anything once

      Re: Best Torrent program

      Ok had another messing around session with Port forwarding last night.....Utorrent started to download again at around 30kps but then did go up to around 250 but then later went back to 50kps.

      Am i safe to assume that port forwarding is working OK & it's just the source of where I am downloading from that is the issue ?

      At the bottom of utorrent do you have a green circle with a tick in it?
