Recommended Bittorrent/µTorrent Settings

December 19, 2009 Leave a comment

As I’ve shown already, Oftentimes people do REALLY stupid things with their client settings. I mean beyond ordinary ‘stupid’. Private tracker sites are one of the main reasons for this. The all-fired obsession with seeding as much as possible, because of the power of the intangible and all-powerful ‘ratio’ that must be obeyed, and adhered to at all costs.

Thus I felt that I should reprint this, as first developed by a friend of mine, a µTorrent forum moderator that goes by the name of Switeck. This was first publshed on the µTorrent forum, but in the spirit of getting it out there, and easily found, he agreed to this reprint. These settings work for pubic AND private trackers (and work better for private trackers than the ones suggested by those trackers in most cases)

Thanks again to Switeck

Almost NO Cable line or ADSL line should use settings higher than 2 mbit/sec upload speed!

Caption

Connection Type/ Upload Maximum = UPLOAD speed in kilobits/sec OR megabits/sec. NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH DOWNLOAD SPEED MAX! A “10 megabit/sec” cable line has that speed only for download…upload speed is likely 1 megabit/sec OR LESS!
UPLOAD Limit = Max Upload Speed in KiloBYTES/second
Upload Slots = number of peers to upload to at once on EACH active Torrent.
Connections Torr = Maximum Connections allowed PER active Torrent
Connections MAX = Global Maximum Connections allowed
MAX ACTIVE Torr = Total Maximum Active Torrents (This is Downloading PLUS Seeding!)
MAX ACTIVE Down. = Total Maximum Downloading Torrents

Hope these settings help you.
