Default OT: How do I speed up torrent downloads?

Please dont move this to OT, I've asked for help in there but no one replies.

I downloaded Azereus and went to snarf-it website for a 24 season 3 download link. I clicked it and it worked.

Now it shows up on my Azereus window and it's been going for 15 minutes and it's not even 0.1 percent done.

How do I speed them up?

Soemthing to do with ports? How do I do this?

If there's few or no seeders, you'll get slow dl rates. Same if there's lots of leechers

I always limit my uploading speed to like 15 kbps, tends to help the downloads go faster.

this means that there's only one user with the complete file, and 38 that dl from him. They provide the parts they've already downloaded to others though. You'll have to wait some time, then others will also have the complete file and your dl speed will improve.

My friend once said something about Daemon tools. Is that the same thing as that alcohol thing? Oh, how do you "mount" it?

Yes, they both do the same thing but Alcohol 120% is a burning app as well. I would highly recommend using Daemon tools as it's free, and simple. It's just a matter of selecting mount image, and browsing to the iso file.

If you continue to have problems with torrent speeds, check out http://torrentfreak.com/optimize-you...ownload-speed/ .
