I agree with SumYumyGuy:

<b>Can you post a visual guide to "Reduce your upload to 90% of your total upstream bandwidth."?</b>


Find your total upstream bandwidth. You can do this by watching the maximum that a properly-configured BitTornado uses, at one of the many connection testing/ranking sites, or simply reading the details of your plan from your ISP. If this value is in kilobits, divide by 8 to convert it to kilobytes.

Multiply that number by 0.9. That will give you 90% of the value.

Enter that number in the Upload Rate box in the main BT window. It's along the bottom, near the middle, as seen in the first picture posted in the original post.

TCP transfers are two way. You actually have to upload acknowledgements back to the server in order to keep your download moving along. If you saturate your upload channel with other data, your download can't report back. If you don't limit BT to a little less than what your connection can handle, it will choke off its own downloads.

A "try and see" method is to start a torrent, then try downloading something. You can simply open your browser and view webpages to test this. Pick an upload value in BT. Try loading a page. If it's slow or fails, lower the upload rate. If it works ok, raise it a little and try again. The idea is to set your upload as high as possible (so that BT rewards your sharing with better downloading) without totally choking off your connection.

id advise you NOT to use ports 6881-6889, unless it is working for you, because most trackers have banned those ports. use random ports and then forward them through your firewall. use what portforward.com told you to if you are unimaginative..... :P

The fewer the better. When you are downloading one torrent...it only uses one port.
How many torrents do you think that you will have downloading at one time? That is how many you should open. I never really download more than one at a time. I have three ports open....sometimes I will download some smaller files at the same time.

Aha! This is the information I needed, and finally got me the green light. If anyone else is struggling with other suggestions, try this one.

Ok, i dont know if this really helps or if anyone else has made the same error, but if you have a router make sure you enable your DMZ host for your computer's ip.

I kept making the mistake of setting my DMZ host to the computer ip xxx.xxx.x.4 when my ip actually ended in xxx.xxx.x.104

I mean simple mistake but if you aren't too good with computers like myself, you may overlook it... anyways yeah take care.
