I have no idea what all those options do but these.

Some kinda give me the idea but I am still lost. For example what does this mean?

--round_robin_period <arg>
the number of seconds between the client's switching
upload targets (defaults to 30)

Sorry I am new to linux but been using Shadows client for a long time now.

What I really want to do here is

Have the client report back to the tracker every 5 mintues so my stats are updated. Get the error message in super seed mode not to appear and to have the client stay connected to the tracker. I notice when I am on a multi tracker torrent my client drops off if the main tracker is down and the torrent is running on a back up tracker.

here is the command I use for regular torrent download.

./btdownloadcurses.py /home/twiley/torrent/GD7-19-94SBD.torrent --saveas /home/twiley/shn/ --max_upload_rate 15

when I am in super seed mode this is what I use.

./btdownloadcurses.py /home/twiley/torrent/GD7-19-94SBD.torrent --saveas /home/twiley/shn/ --max_upload_rate 15 --super_seeder 1

the error I get is this...

Thanks for any info.

Actually, super-seed posts an informational error message. That client may be live, and just not connected to anyone yet.

OK cool so the error(s) is just a generic message.

So how do I have the client report back to the tracker every 5 mintues so my stats are updated?

What command can I add to this to have the client do that every 5 mintues?

This is what I am using currently.

./btdownloadcurses.py /home/twiley/torrent/GD7-19-94SBD.torrent --saveas /home/twiley/shn/ --max_upload_rate 15

Which command and at what # setting would I use?

Thanks for the timely response on the super seed mode I really do appreciate it :)

The client already reports to the tracker as necessary, automatically. That command-line option is just fine.
