Now I'm going to get Bell Fibe. The throttling was the only thing stopping me.

Pretty much! Newsgroups and a fast connection = win...

I tend to only download 1080p content now which for the most part are 8-12GB in size... a 9-10GB file is done in under and hour at that speed (about 47min).

Although I do usually throttle it to about 2.5MB/s so that there is something left for browsing and such

So i guess if you dont download a lot its good. I very rarely download under 300 gigs a month. My mom's work (university) pays 43.99$ for unlimited (no asteriks) on 8/1.5

i'm gonna buy a 536 and see if it will speed up my download speeds.

yes the caps suck... Robbers and Bellus has you by the nuts. It's freekin' absurd for them to offer such speeds and then cap you so low. But what can you do.

I ain't willing to wait a day to download a 10GB 1080p file on regular 5Mbit DSL (actual throughput is more like 4 anyway for the most part). So I pay to play.

I hear you bro. Honestly, i get a little chub when i download at 5mb/s, but i would litterally blow through that cap in one day if i had those speeds.

For people with slow(ish) connections who want to become uber leechers.
You need:
-Lots of hard drive space
-Unlimited internet connection (If you have a cap, utorrent 2.0 has a bandwidth cap which will pause all torrents until next month once cap is met)
-Correctly setup portforwarding
-Utorrent 2.0 installed (duh)

The best thing to do is to install utorrent on a machine that's always on. Now i realize not everyone's a huge nerd and runs their PC 24X7, but that's your fault cause you should.

Think about it. Downloading at 350kb/s (very reasonable, you can see this for 22 hours a day with UTP, between 6-8 you'll see 200) is like 30 gigs a day.
Downloading at 1mb/s stable for 7-8 hours a day will get you 30 gigs aswell.
As you can see, the key here is consistant downloading.

Further optimization / remote monitoring and queing:
I love Utorrent for a number of reasons, one of which is the WebUI.
Basically, this lets you load a java frontend to your utorrent which is accessible through a web browser:
(this is NOT my screencap, just for illustration, i dont watch buffy)



How to set this up:
Utorrent->options->preferences->webui-> click enable

CHOOSE A USERNAME AND PASSWORD. DO NOT LEAVE THE DEFAULTS.

I'd leave the listening port as is, it will save you having to forward another port.

You can now test out webui:
The address is: (XXX = your IP, YYYY is the port you forwarded) You can use either your external ip (actual IP) or your local ip which will start with (192.168.XXX.XXX). Your local IP is not addressable outside of your home network, your external IP is. To find out your external ip go here: http://www.whatismyip.com/


http://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:YYYY/gui/

So, you're almost done. Since most of you are on DSL, you have dynamic IP's. Dynamic IP's (unlike static IP's) change frequently (every time you connect to the internet, you have a new IP). This presents a problem, since you're not going to know what the IP of your network at home is if you're at work if the service has restarted. To solve this problem we use DYNDNS

Go to dyndns.org, sign up for an account (free). You will register for an account something like ZZZZZZ.dyndns.org

Option 1) Your router supports DDNS [There will be a tab on your router config page that says DDNS]
Enter your account info under the ddns tab (your username, which doesn't have to be the same as your sub-domain name (ZZZZZ from above. Username is in the confirmation email)

Option 2) Your router doesn't have DDNS options. In this case, download the DDNS updater from their website http://www.dyndns.com/support/clients/

Fill in your username and password. Click on update automatically (green checkmark should appear in bottom left corner)

You're done!
http://ZZZZ.dyndns.org:YYYY/gui/ will be the address of your frontend, accessible anywhere that has ipV4 internet access.

You can remove torrents, set upload/download caps, and add new torrents remotely.
The best way to add remote torrents is to click add new torrent (button in top left corner of GUI) and then enter the URL of the torrent itself (right click on download torrent on most sites, like TPB, and press copy link, then paste that into the field. The extention of the web address must be .torrent, like this:

http://torrents.thepiratebay.org/534...81.TPB.torrent

Also, if you haven't seen the wire, its probably the best show i've ever seen on TV, so download it.

With the RS account you can download 20 gig every 3 days then it resets. So you will basically hit your isp cap by months end np. to me thats more than enough lol.

thats weird for you. get it checked out.
For 100k difference I don't think I'm going to worry about it. This is far better that I had runnign on my last torrent machine (hp laptop). Now I have it running on an older desktop with win7ult and I am quite happy.

I dont have a cap. I've broken 500 gigs in a month and no one's ever said anything to me.

It takes me less than 30 seconds to remotely add a torrent to my queue (like i just did. I'm not home, i'm at school)
