Sorry, couldnt come up with a better topicname.
Anyway, I use rtorrent to download torrents. I have configured it properly(i think).
But it never actually downloads the files. The speed is maximum 5kb/s.
I know what you think, he havnt opened his ports. But I have actually. I dont know what can be causing it :S
Here is my rtorrent.rc file. I copied it from the rtorrent site:
# This is an example resource file for rTorrent. Copy to
# ~/.rtorrent.rc and enable/modify the options as needed. Remember to
# uncomment the options you wish to enable.
# Maximum and minimum number of peers to connect to per torrent.
min_peers = 40
max_peers = 200
# Same as above but for seeding completed torrents (-1 = same as downloading)
#min_peers_seed = 10
#max_peers_seed = 50
# Maximum number of simultanious uploads per torrent.
max_uploads = 25
# Global upload and download rate in KiB. "0" for unlimited.
download_rate = 0
upload_rate = 600
# Default directory to save the downloaded torrents.
directory = /home/synt4x/Downloads
# Default session directory. Make sure you don't run multiple instance
# of rtorrent using the same session directory. Perhaps using a
# relative path?
session = /home/synt4x/.session
# Watch a directory for new torrents, and stop those that have been
schedule = watch_directory,5,5,load_start=/home/synt4x/torrent/*.torrent
schedule = untied_directory,5,5,stop_untied=
# Close torrents when diskspace is low.
#schedule = low_diskspace,5,60,close_low_diskspace=100M
# Stop torrents when reaching upload ratio in percent,
# when also reaching total upload in bytes, or when
# reaching final upload ratio in percent.
# example: stop at ratio 2.0 with at least 200 MB uploaded, or else ratio 20.0
#schedule = ratio,60,60,stop_on_ratio=200,200M,2000
# The ip address reported to the tracker.
ip = 126.96.36.199
#ip = rakshasa.no
# The ip address the listening socket and outgoing connections is
# bound to.
bind = 192.168.0.2
#bind = rakshasa.no
# Port range to use for listening.
port_range = 22345-22375
# Start opening ports at a random position within the port range.
port_random = yes
# Check hash for finished torrents. Might be usefull until the bug is
# fixed that causes lack of diskspace not to be properly reported.
check_hash = yes
# Set whetever the client should try to connect to UDP trackers.
use_udp_trackers = yes
# Alternative calls to bind and ip that should handle dynamic ip's.
#schedule = ip_tick,0,1800,ip=rakshasa
#schedule = bind_tick,0,1800,bind=rakshasa
# Do not modify the following parameters unless you know what you're doing.
# Hash read-ahead controls how many MB to request the kernel to read
# ahead. If the value is too low the disk may not be fully utilized,
# while if too high the kernel might not be able to keep the read
# pages in memory thus end up trashing.
#hash_read_ahead = 10
# Interval between attempts to check the hash, in milliseconds.
#hash_interval = 100
# Number of attempts to check the hash while using the mincore status,
# before forcing. Overworked systems might need lower values to get a
# decent hash checking rate.
#hash_max_tries = 10
# Max number of files to keep open simultaniously.
#max_open_files = 128
# Number of sockets to simultaneously keep open.
#max_open_sockets = <no default>
# Example of scheduling commands: Switch between two ip's every 5
#schedule = "ip_tick1,5,10,ip=torretta"
#schedule = "ip_tick2,10,10,ip=lampedusa"
# Remove a scheduled event.
#schedule_remove = "ip_tick1"
Is there something wrong here? I cant see anything :S
I have tried commenting out the "ip" and "bind" options with no success.
EDIT: I dont know what happened, but now it appears to work.
But it still dont feel like it downloads at maximum speed. I have a 100mbit connection and its downloading at 70-80kB/s.
And there are 60+ peers connected so I dont think it has to do with too little connections.
