latest file sharing protocol bittorrent has modified everything when
it comes to file sharing. It is a nice platform for downloading large
files. Sharing of files include movies, iso images and MP3 songs.
Bittorent is mainly famous for illegal file sharing .
The Bittorrent system can be slow at times due to heavy traffic. so
let us tweak bittorrent sharing program a little bit.
There are a lot of different bittorrent clients that you can download.
I think the best are BitCommet and uTorrent.
Here is a few tips to speed up
uTorrent Client. Similar can be implemented on any other torrent
clients ,which you are using.
Step 1: Increase TCP connections
You need to increase the number of TCP
connections that are allowed at max.Windows XP Service Pack 2 came
with the number of allowed open connections to 10. This is to stop any
piece of spyware(in our case bittorent client even) from totally
taking over your internet connection. TCP connection allowed should be
50 for optimal performance. The best way to increase the maximum
number of connections is to apply patch that is available at www.lvllord.de. A nice way to fix
this is to download this patch .
The little tweak to the torrent client works
great in certain times. If you’re using uTorrent go to Options menu
then Preferences. In the Preferences go the Advanced Options. In the
advanced options change the net.max_halfopen connections to 80. In the
same section change the max half open tcp connections to 80. Once your
done click on OK and you are all set. This tweak will let the maximum
TCP connection available for the bittorrent client. Now start
downloading you’ll realize a little difference in the download speed.
Port forwarding technique is more effective than this.
A third point of interest is that some
“windows updates” revert your tweaked tcp connections back to 10. So
it’s wise to check this every now and then. You can check this by
going to (in windows xp) Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools
> Event Viewer > System… Look for event 4226 (sort by event).
If there are a lot of daily occurrences it’s likely that the max amount
of half-open tcp connections was set back to 10. Or you’re infected
with some nasty spy ware…
Step 2:Torrent Client Configuration
In order to apply these tips you must know your maximum up- and
download speed. You can test your bandwidth over here (stop all
download activity while testing).
Settings 1-4 can be found in the options,
settings or preference tab of most torrent clients.
1. Maximum upload speed
Probably the most important setting there is.
Your connection is (sort of) like a pipeline, if you use you maximum
upload speed there’s not enough space left for the files you are
downloading. So you have to cap your upload speed.
Use the following formula to determine your
optimal upload speed…
80% of your maximum upload speed
so if your maximum upload speed is 40 kB/s,
the optimal upload rate is 32kB/s But keep seeding!
First you need :µTorrent - a (very) tiny BitTorrent clientDownload and install it.There are many other Torrent clients but i find this the best one.
Then you need a torrent site here you go:http://thepiratebay.org/top Now search for what you Movies,Games,Music etc.Download the Torrent file and open with Utorrent your download should have now started in Utorrent.
How do I download files using BitTorrent?Just like you need a URL like 'www.google.com' to go to a web site and download content, you need a 'torrent file', a small file that tells the BitTorrent client the necessary info to download the content you want. This is generally obtained from a torrent website. Many websites offer torrents as one method of downloading files. For example,OpenOffice.org, a free alternative to Microsoft Office, can be downloaded using BitTorrent. Other sites, like legaltorrents.com, offer torrents of all kinds of things - these sites are just repositories of torrents and usually don't actually create any of the content available. They are known as torrent indexers. Once you've obtained a torrent file, you simply need to import it into µTorrent. There are several ways of doing this.
Drag and drop the torrent file you downloaded onto µTorrent's window.
Choose to open the torrent file instead of saving it to your computer. If you have associated µTorrent with .torrent files, this will work. µTorrent asks on first run if you want to do this, but if you said no, you can go to Options, Preferences and click button labeled Associate with .torrent files to reassociate it.
But before you start downloading, make sure you've followed the µTorrent Setup Guide. It doesn't take long and will help ensure that your torrent experience is faster and more consistent.
You use special torrent search engines to find .torrent text files around the Net. A .torrent text file functions as a special pointer to locate a specific file and the swarm of people currently sharing that file. These .torrent files varyfrom 15kb to 150kb file size, and are published by serious Torrent sharersaround the world.
You download the desired .torrent file to your drive (thistakes about 5 seconds per .torrent file at cable modem speeds).
.Usually, thisis as simple as a adouble-click on the .torrent file icon, and the client software auto-launches. In other cases, this software willeven open the torrent file for you.
The torrent client software willnow talk to a tracker server for 2 to 10 minutes, whileitscours the Internet for people to swarmwith.Specifically, the client and tracker server willsearch for otheruserswho have the same exact .torrent file as you.
As the tracker locates torrent users to swarmwith, each user willbeautomaticallylabeled as either a "leech/peer" or as a "seed" (userswho have only part of the target file, versus userswho have the completetarget file). As youmightguess, the more seedsyouconnect to, the fasteryour download willbe. Commonly, 10 peers/leeches and 3 seeders is a good swarm for downloading a single song/movie.
The client software thenbegins the transfer. As the name "sharing" implies, everytransferwillhappen in both directions, "down" and "up" (leech and share). *SPEED EXPECTATION: Cable and DSL modem users can expect an average of 25 megabytes per hour, sometimesslowerif the swarmissmallwithlessthan 2 seeders. On a good daywith a big swarm, however, you can download a 5MB songwithin 3 minutes, and a 900MB moviewithin 60 minutes.
Once the transferiscomplete, leaveyour torrent client software running for at least twohours. This iscalled "seeding" or "good karma", whereyoushareyourcomplete files to otherusers.Suggestion: do your downloads justbeforeyou go to sleep at night. This way, youwillseedyourcomplete files, youwillincreaseyourupload/download ratio, and youwill have completedownloaded files by the time you wake up!
Movie and music plug-ins:youwilllikelyneed to install media players and updated codec converters to playyour downloads:
Fair warning: youwillwant a second hard drive once you start serious torrent downloading. Songs and moviesrequire large diskspace, and an average P2P user commonly has 20 to 40 GB of media files at any one time. A second 500GB hard drive iscommon for serious P2P users, and the recentlowprices on hard drives makeit a good investment
The ".torrent" file type is referring to the software that you need to download the file. It contains tracker information that will allow you to download the file using a torrent client. Download bittorrent (http://www.bittorrent.com/), or utorrent (http://www.utorrent.com/), and install.
Which ever you choose to install should be set to open "*.torrent" files by default. You should then be able to open the link - which is what the torrent file essentially is - and it will ask you to add it to the files that you are currently downloading.
If you need to add it manually, You can open the file menu and then locate the file on your drive.

A peer is like a workstation which contributes it's resource (hard disk space,speed,Bandwidth etc.) without the need of central coordination (servers).They are both suppliers and consumers of the resources.
In simple words if you have noticed P2P clients like uTorrents,Bittorrents and many other and you want to download a file...you first download the torrent file--run it--and you start downloading it in 'parts'(consumer) from different people who already have downloaded the files and also you will see that you are using some of your bandwidth in uploading too (supplier) which means other people are also downloading from your workstation.You can even stop someone from downloading the file from your end. This is what peer-to-peer is all about.
