I'm still seeding my Slackware64 13.37 iso; and I will be seeding this for a while.
My Slackware64 13.37 DVD torrent download was quite fast, and I want to return the favor.
I also pre-ordered a Slackware 13.37 DVD a couple of weeks ago.

Seed for 13.37 x64 setup.. set to an upload limit of only a 10 kB/s, but seeding infinite (or until 13.4 arrives)

I too will seed both 32 and 64 bit dvds for quite some time. I'm gonna buy me one of the sweet new 13.37 shirts tomorrow!:cool:

Barring a life change, I'll seed 13.37 until people stop downloading it. I still have 13.0 & 13.1 running 200gb so far for 13.37 :-)

By Jove! I didn't get a "connection refused" this time (first time ever). Instead, I got a "connection timed out". So I'm downloading the DVD 32 bit version now. The "stop seeding" is turned off.

It seems better than being refused. But worse than "Ok". Is there any way I can fix this? I am using Deluge 1.3.1.

But I am still seeding.

Do I need to make changes to my firewall before being part of the torrent process?
What is the best torrent program to use? rtorrent? (I prefer a CLI version).

Yea, you have to dedicate a port to use and then create a firewall rule to allow bi-directional traffic. By default most BT clients default to port 6880-6885 and as a result most ISPs throttle or outright block that range. I always use a random upper range like 29280-29289.

I'll let others recommend a Linux BT client; I have always used uTorrent on a Windows server since it has the built in Web Management Interface, which allows me to dedicate a single machine to centralising all bittorrent traffic on the LAN.

Seeding... and shortly to be leaving windows :cool:

Thanks for bringing this up. I've been meaning to start seeding the discs but never got around to it. Don't have the source trees available so I'm just redownloading them and will seed immediately.
