    Hi guys, I've been using Bit Torrent and Kazaa as my main P2P programs, but Kazaa is severly lacking and I can't get decent speeds out of BT :wtc: . Does anybody know of any decent P2P programs? Or have any tips on how to speed up BT? Got a super fast connection at work and nothing to use it on :)

    the best way to speed up BT is to open up ports 6881-6889, but you prolly can't do that at work.

    Thanks for the tip, but unfortunately I can't at work. My upload speed is usually twice my download speed no matter what settings I try.

    Well, all that extra DL speed I use has to come from somewhere :)

    Not sure of the size of the company and the skills of the IS team there, but be careful and the BT throttling is probably very good for you. Without the throttling, you'd probably end up pegging the network activity and alerting some IS folks to what you're up to. This then ends up in a company policy about P2P usage which then results in firing people.

    I've seen this a few times. Not pretty...

    I prefer irc & dc over any other file transfers networks.
