OpenSuse 10.2 and extremely slow torrent speeds

Hi all,
I am having very slow download speeds on torrents. The clients I have tried are ktorrent and utorrent(through wine). This happened the first time at fresh install and i figured out that it was suse's firewall so I disabled it. Now I am having the same problem with the firewall disabled.

I have double checked that my NIC gets a static ip and a specific port of the ip is forwarded from my adsl router and the port has been "stated" in the torrent clients so I can't figure out what is wrong...

Note that the same torrent starts with speeds of 40-50KB/s in windows (I am using utorrent with the same settings) whereas in opensuse I get 5-10KB/s all the time.

Any ideas of what the problem might be?
Thank you very much for your help

The versions of ktorrent I've used on opensuse 10.2 had the NAT / port forwarding all messed up. I don't know how well things work through wine, so I suggest you install azureus (native, not wine) and see whether that works. It works for me.


ktorrent, speed
