scrap that, it froze eventually. have removed ZA 5 and put on sygate (its quite good actually) and gone to newest version of bitornado and have not had any probs for a couple of days now
I dropped ZA 5 for similar reasons and tried Kerio.Â·
What a disaster!Â·
It was nothing but slowdowns and lockups.Â·
So I tried Sygate next, and it's been such a pleasure.
The one difficulty I might be having with Sygate and BitTornado is that, since a problem in BitTornado since version 0.3.2 keeps me from using 0.3.7, I stick with 0.3.1, which doesn't have random port selection.Â·
If I reuse the same listening port for too long, it gets blocked on the next torrent.Â·
I don't know whether to blame Sygate Personal Firewall for thinking my previous invocation of BitTornado didn't let go of it, or my ISP for chasing me around the ports and blocking any that I listen on too much.Â·
So I change ports manually in BitTornado 0.3.1 whenever it occurs, or sometimes preventatively.
