      Torrent encryption working, but slow upload

      Well it appears most are aware of the issue with bit torrent and Sky Connect.

      So far I have found that using encryption in utorrent/azureus works great enabling full download speeds, the only issue I have now is that upload speeds are all but non existent therefore killing my share ratio.

      Port forwarding is set properly for both incoming and outgoing traffic.

      Any help would be appreciated.

      I got the opposite problem with download speeds being rubbish despite being on several private trackers, but I will try this encryption option you talked about in another thread. By the way what do you set your upload speed at when downloading? As I am always meddling with this and have never found a right balance.

      Before moving over to Sky I usually had it set to about 20kB/s that would prevent the upload from becoming saturated whilst I was surfing, if I was away from the PC I would set it to unlimited.

      80% is reccomended, but set it lower and gradually raise it to find what works for you!

      what confuses me is that if my upload is 448kbps do I divide that amount by 10 and *80%? Or divide it by 8 and then *80%? I am using utorrent btw.

      well 448kb/s = 56kB/s and 80% of 56kB/s is 44.8kB/s

      So somewhere in the region of 30 - 40 kB/s should be safe.
      You never get the full stated speed due to various factors so setting it too high will staurate the line and make surfing unbearable.

      I see because whenever I do a speedtest on the bbmax site my upload never goes higher than 370kbps....so i will work it out on that figure to begin with.

      Cheers
