What about a tracker-finder; which scans the interbutts to find trackers for the same torrent, so you can have more peers/seeds?
there are a few sites that offer that service, they scan for the content and provide you with trackers to add into the torrent client. Of course, the
file has to be exact with the hash check or it will be wasting your time.
Something to note, don't go overboard adding more trackers, more peers theoretically is a good thing, too many means wasted bandwidth on making
connections to many peers.
As well, if you have windows 7, you'll want to google and find the "windows 7 tcpip tweak" to ensure you are allowing the most connections
The problem with a stand alone exe doing this is everybody has different variables at play, a certain peer limit and bandwidth cap might be perfect
for me, but might completely slow yours down.
I still have problems getting my bittorrents to download fast.
Here's my tips for speed, work for me, might not for you:
Windows 7 tcpip fix set at 150 connections
Utorrent max peers peers at 150
No global download or upload cap
Cap at 80% of your upload speed on each individual torrent, nothing too low or it suffers, I find 10% gives me maxed downloads then it switches to
seeding until it reaches whatever goal I set.
Add in other public trackers that have your torrent into the torrent client tracker section, but don't go overboard
I have utorrent set to randomize it's port at start up, but this really depends on your network setup/isp
Upnp seems to work great with mine, others have issues and disabled it.
Since you are not straying into the grey area with your downloads, you can also set the encryption off instead of forced.
but usually they're written by teenagers who don't care if they screw your system up.
Well first, no they aren't, at least not the good ones. Second, you shouldn't be blindly following guides to tweak anything if you don't have enough
knowledge as to what not to do.
