Slow download

Recommended Posts

Guest Newie

Hi, I'm new to bittorrent. I followed very closely to the set up guide but my downloading is extremely slow. Why is that so? I keep getting the same message "Port is not open but you are still able to download" when I perform a network test.

Im no expert but the download speed depends on the upload speed of the peers and seeders u r connected to. as far as your port try a site called simple port forwarding. This may help. Your port is like an open door that peers connect to to send the file to you. Your computer has thousands of ports and the number of which port bittorrent is using needs to be forwarded to the peers so they know which port to send the file to. I THINK!! Hope I have helped.
