jimmo Posted February 11, 2012 Report Share Posted February 11, 2012 I have two questions about BitTorrent, a few things that look out of the norm on my BT activities window (What is the actual, correct name for the BT download window? I want to refer to it properly). First, there is a small, yellow triangle icon in the bottom-right corner. When I placed the cursor over it, a message says that unless it turns green something may be wrong with my network configuration. I clicked on it, and a window opened that said BT will test network and configure itself for best performance. So I allowed the test to run.The test results were as follows-- Bandwidth box checked and Results: Uploads: 629.1 kbit/s (76.7 kB/s) and Downloads: 1.8 Mbit/s (220.8 kB/s); Network box checked, and Results: Port is not open (you are still able to download). The Current port: (0: random), and the Automatic Port Mapping (Recommended) box is checked.Additionally, three of my files are seeding. I understand it is best, to be considered a good BitTorrent user, to allow one's ratio per file to be higher than 1.0. Two of my three seeding files are higher than 1.0, one at 3.992, one at 1.932, and the third at 0.806. The one still downloading has no ratio, and occasionally there is a red bar in the Status column of that one, that alternates back to a light blue color. The one still downloading has been at 95.5% for a few days now. Does that fact, plus the Status bar turning red occasionally, indicate a problem?Please also advise on what, if anything, I need to do about that yellow trangle icon situation. It is still not green after the test. I am not a computer expert, have figured out how to download torrents from a friend's instructions, but am still uncertain about all the fetaures of BitTorrent.Thank you,Jim Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
