Network problems with bittorrent / azureus
This problem right now is driving me nuts. I've been using Linux lightly for awhile now, but have finally started using it on my desktop as my main OS. This is the one problem preventing me from using Linux exclusively.
Here is what I got:
SUSE 9.1 Linux version 2.6.5-7.111-default (geeko@buildhost) (gcc version 3.3.3 (SuSE Linux)) #1 Wed Oct 13 15:45:13 UTC 2004
Sun Java2-jre 1.4.2
My network connection dies soon after starting a torrent. I think it is related to the upload, rather than download. There have been a few torrent that completed, but with abysmal share ratios. I've tried many different settings for Azureus including severely limiting my upload & download bandwidth and alternative socket pooling. My cable modem is not the problem. In windows it works fine and in linux The problem is fixed (for a bit) with rebooting my computer. I have tried disabling the SUSE firewall. At least I think it is, I disabled it in YaST. I think the problem might be with some of my TCP/IP settings but I don't have the first clue on how to change these. I have IPv6 enabled, I'm going to turn that off see if it fixes anything, doubt it.
Anybody got a clue to what is causing the problem, and how to fix it?
