Increase download speed
Enter the port number these will be provided by your proxy provider in their setup guide. By doing this you prevent someone, who is seeding, trying to upload a part you already have and which is useless for you. This could be your cable company, DSL, Sattelite, or a university network. It is quite possible with a "new" torrent or an one with "small" swarm only a few peers , that the missing pieces are not available. To generate your proxy credentials, login to your account on their website, scroll down and you will see this: Some Plug and Play technologies like UPnP have been found to have security vulnerabilities that could potentially expose your IP address on vuze accidentally, so we will show you how to disable it.

It is quite possible with a "new" torrent or an one with "small" swarm only a few peers , that the missing pieces are not available. So, it is quite possible that torrent remains active with "downloading" status, but is not actively downloading anything as there is nobody to download from. Before thinking that your configuration is slow, test it with a "known speedy" torrent. You don't have to download the MB torrent completely, but you can use it as a test case for measuring maximum speeds of genuine torrents.

Another reason for uploading is simply to help fill everyone up. By doing this you prevent someone, who is seeding, trying to upload a part you already have and which is useless for you. The chance that he then uploads a piece you need becomes greater.

This will not result directly in increasing speed but it will optimize the uploader's upload which results in you getting your piece sooner since you no longer need to wait for a piece. Think of it as a reverse Zero Sum game. Requests made to the tracker, browser requests to load web pages, and sending email all utilise your upstream capacity. So you may experience the following difficulties when running Azureus.

If you find yourself having problems with the Internet while Azureus is running, try further lowering your max upload. This logic applies in both directions. So Azureus DL max would be:.

Reduce this somewhat to allow other Internet protocols better response on the same connection. Buffered data is obsolete data and causes serious problems in the responsiveness of the protocol to changes in the peer state. Since data and requests share the same TCP socket, buffering lots of data means that your request for a block may have to wait 10's of seconds before it even gets transmitted, by which time the peer you are talking to may have decided that you aren't interested in his data after all, or your own client may decide that the peer you are talking to is snubbing you.

Either of these is disastrous to download rates. If you are "firewalled", then other people will not be able to initiate connections with you see Why Is Being Firewalled Bad. As there are many firewalls and routers, this guide can not give explanations as to each.

However, there are guides available, on the internet for most firewalls and routers and this guide will link you to them. Setting permission for the port is the safer choice. You can check these options for guides:.

Router - There are two choices here. However, this has a possible security issue. The other choice is to manually forward the port through the router. This does not have that security issue, but involves going through several steps to accomplish. Using the guides linked herein, this should not be that difficult and is the preferred method. Manual Forwarding-The Preferred Way. Error - re-do steps or seek help in Forums. Setting upload in Vuze is a fine line.

The more upload you give, the more download you will get from other peers. However, if upload is set too high, or to unlimited, then download speeds will suffer as outgoing communications acknowledgment signals, resend requests etc will be interfered with. Other adjustments are made here to distribute your upload so that you receive back the most download from other peers.

This section of the guide is based on the Vuze-Wiki: To take the test you must have Flash installed and javascript enabled. Before taking the speed test, press Settings in the upper right of the speedtest.

This will take you to another page. At the bottom of that page is the "Global Settings" options. Set "Speed Measurement" to kilobytes and press "Save". This will facilitate entry into the calculator below and will lessen confusion as qBittorrent shows speeds in kilobytes. You should stop all internet activity, including torrents, before taking the test and the test should be taken a few times to obtain a reliable average.

Results will now show in KiloBytes. It is the upload rate that is important here. However, you may wish to do a double check on real life upload speed.

When you are seeding a torrent with a good number of peers and you are using your upload cap, set upload to unlimited and watch for about minutes and see where upload settles in at.

Then input that number into the calculator in the kiloBytes section. Some ISPs will show inaccurate results on the speed test. If your ISP has anything like Comcast's PowerBoost , then your results will show higher than the actual speed of your connection. PowerBoost provides a burst of download and upload speeds above your provisioned download and upload speeds for the first 10MB and 5MB respectively. Since the speed test involves relatively small files, this will skew results upward.

Using Google "speed result" x. You should end up with the calculator showing a cap that is about half of the test result.
