lol whats funny is you guys can use linux like nothing but you can't get bit torrent to work :P Well hopefully you figure it out since it's not too hard. If you have a firewall or router or router/firewall it's going to be slow. If you have a direct connection to the net and no firewall (software or hardware) then it's going to be really fast.

Rather than just posting a critical remark,
you could offer some help...

Don't feed the trolls.

Can set ignore users on this forum? I'll have to check into that.

edit: Cool, we can set users to ignore. I'll have to remember that.

Wasn't critical, I was poking fun at ppl with advanced computer knowledge.

I did offer some help saying that torrent would be fast if they weren't restricted by a firewall or a router. Now if you could read then you would have seen that and this whole thing could have been stopped before it started.


Now you can stop taking everything people say on the net so seriously and offer some help.

Hey Mark, nice to be back! How did you manage
through the tsunami? Glad you survived!

I'd like to order a set, but should probably just
have them shipped to someone in the States.
After shipping them to China, and then paying
the tarriff -- not to mention the hassles, it would
probably cost me as much as another OS. ;-)

Would really like a t-shirt, though. Maybe we
can get someone going to bring them on their
return.

I have never been able to get bittorrent to work and have always put it down to being behind my college's firewall but the post by Shade gives me some hope:

I'm getting a steady 330KB/s download speed through bittorrent.

edit: up to 480 KB/s now :-D
So can anyone tell me how to go about doing this so that I'll know for future also. Do I need to edit any .conf files (have looked for config files for bittorrent but can't find any)?

Once I downloaded the following file: slackware-10.1-install-d1.torrent

I tried:
Code:
btdownloadcurses.py --forwarded_port 6881 slackware-10.1-install-d1.torrent
and it just hangs, not detecting any seeds.

The 4th image is up on that site, but it's size is wrong at 278020 KB.
I have it waiting in gftp from ftp.scarlet.be at 693,731,328 so something
is wrong at the slackware.mirrors.tds.net site.

I wish I could get that speed. I have a 2Mbps ADSL connection here, and with
gftp I'm d/ling from ftp.scarlet.be at about 27KB/s right now :/

err well if you have a hardware firewall like say a DLINK then your best bet is to log into its html interface. So fire up X and open a browser and go to the addy of the router. Refer to your user manualy for the addy. So say the addy was 192.168.16.50 then you would go to

http://192.168.16.50

and it will prompt you to login. If you dont know the default username and password your best bet would be to look in your user manual. After that you could look for an option to allow all traffic in and out on specified ports. The best way to set this up is .. well look in your user manual.

I guess what I'm trying to say is read the manual on how to open ports on your router, since the details are going to of course change from one router to the next. If you've setup a software firewall ... well thats a whole 'nother subject that I doubt needs to be covered here.

I think that's what I need to do. Tomorrow after I've had some sleep and these
present downloads have finished I'll give that a go...thanks for the help.
