UL speed far beyond the limit.


Recommended Posts



As a longtime user of Bittorrent, I finally upgraded to latest version.


With my previous version I kept all Torrents online. Seeding (depending what date it was in the month) from 5K (always 24/7) to 1MB (24/7)


Now,  After my monthly reset of my ISP dataplan, I want it to be 5K limit so I can up it again when we get to Santa (2013/12/06) as I reach the end of my dataplan.


My problem:  I've limited the upload to [5K].    [Preferences - Bandwith - Global Upload Rate Limiting - Maximum upload Rate: 5]


All my torrents are on normal priority (Seeding and Downloading). 

Download isn't limited at all.


Global Rate Limit options: Nothing Checked.

However:  I'm currently uploading at 800 kb/sec and only downloading at 300kb/sec.


I can't seem to get stuff configured (First time ever).



ADDENDUM:  When I Check [Apply rate limit to transport overhead] & [Apply rate limit to uTP connections] The UL-speed drops to about 15 kb/sec.  BUT the DL speed also drops to about 100 k/sec.


ADDENDUM 2: My port is open, tested and working. 


Any thoughts for fixing this headacke :s


Thanks in advance!




P.S.  Just Tried running it with the Global Rate Limit Options Checked. (Transport Overhead and Utp connections).  My DL stays steady at about 1.2 MB (where I normally get about 10MBPS)  My UL limited to 5K has an avg of about 10Kb/sec.


I'm searching the web for answers but ... Can't seem to find some
