    Does anyone know how to limit the speed of upload to the speed of download in Azureus? I'm gettign really annoyed with torrents that are upload at about 25 Kb/s while only downloading at something stupid like 125 B/s. Thanks

    download netlimiter. www.netlimiter.com However, just because you lower the upload, doesn't mean the the download will necessarily get any faster.

    do you mean on netlimiter? you can set the max upload and download that you want to set for whatever program that accesses the net.

    In the bottom right hand corner of the Azureus window there should be a Download and upload speed, either left or right click the numbers and a thing should come up with a list of speeds you can limit the speeds to.

    I haven't got it installed at the moment or I'd post a screenshot of it, but it's definitely possible to limit both the up and download rates in Azureus.

    I recommend a maximum upload of 20KB/s for normal ADSL lines on bittorrent, any higher and the download rates start to suffer.

    Netlimiter will also work, but it's not needed if you just want to limit azureus.

    You can do it easily on azureus.

    Right click on your download and click show details, so you get the tabbed page with loads of details of the download.

    In the latest azureus the option is on its own subtab within this page called 'options'. On older versions it is on the genral tab.

    hey barr ;D

    I use bitcomet, and can get about 120Kb/sec (i have 1MB connection)

    Trick is, put upload to about 30% less than your max upload speed. To find this, go to some online bandwith test.

    The your downlaods shoot up a lot.

    There should always be an upload limitter feature in a torrent client, i'm not familiar with Azureus so i can't say where, but if there wasnt one it would defeat the point of torrents, as theyr designed to be ran all the time and no-one wants to give their last 25% of ul bandwidth............

    try 'preferences'

    I have a 2 Mbit downstream connection and can get full download speed uploading at 128kbits/s (50%) of my upload. I have to do this because cable connections aren't so good at uploading and downloading at the same time.

    You get 25 KB/s so ure upload is probably 256 kbits/s in which case setting 16 KB/s should be fine.
