 Post subject: announce interval
PostPosted: Sun Aug 15, 2004 5:50 am 
I would like to be able to change the announce inteval, just cut it by a few minutes so that I don't get dropped by the tracker, missing out on the overall stats. How can I do this?
This doen't happen that often, maybe ones or twice every 24 hours.
BTW I'm using T-0.3.4.

To put it simply -- don't. The client will announce every 5 minutes if you don't have enough connections; otherwise, it will set its announce interval to what the TRACKER suggests. People changing the interval may overload the tracker and possibly get themselves banned from the tracker.

I'll soon get banned from the tracker anyway, because I can't maintain my ratio. I really need to stay connected to the tracker. Uploading 1 GB and get credit for 200 MB really sucks.
I have a lot of peers and my upload is going flat out. does the client time out, or what? And if it's so, is it possible to get it to retry.

I received a warning from my favorite torrent site that my BitTornado client was reannouncing far too often. I asked the admin how often and he said "High 40's, low 50's". Their preferred interval is 30 minutes.

Is it possible to change this so I don't get banned?
