Hello there,

Perhaps you can find more information here: http://community.vodafone.com.au/t5/Mobile-Broadband/Port-forwarding-not-working-for-me-pocketwifi/td-p/134612
Port forwarding is mostly for upload speed, but it's good to do anyway.

If that link didn't help (please do actually read it), please open a new topic here: http://games4theworld.forumotion.com/f24-software , so we can try to assist you. Thank you!

Hmmm... I'm not sure, don't the options look pretty much the same?

Nope! But I just adjusted the things I could adjust and I do think it's going much faster now though.
Thanks for the fast reply!

Was around 500kb before doing this. I can reach 1 mb after doing this!

Hello,

Note that the maximum speed also depends on the amount of seeders and on your internet connection speed provided by your ISP.
Is it a popular torrent? Then the amount of seeders probably isn't the issue.

Hi there,

Yes, of course, because you're downloading with a faster speed now! (So the download rate increases)

Hello @RockSaltShells95,


Yes, there have been indeed a few reported issues with some of the hosted pictures here. Right now and for me, only the second one out of 3 pictures in the opening post, is missing on my end. But you have the description anyway, of where the option can be found.




"In the BitTorrent tab, turn off the Enable bandwidth management [uTP] and Limit local peer bandwidth options. Also be sure to set outgoing Protocol Encryption to Forced and check Allow incoming legacy connections, as shown below..."



Please wait a little more while until the Admin re-adds the missing picture. Smile

Hi,

Glad you found this helpful. Smile You're absolutely right though!
Unfortunately the images are missing because of an issue on the (image) host's side. See more information about that HERE.
A lot of images were missing for me on the Forum earlier today too. They seem to show up again now.

Please try again in a day or so. If they are still not up, shoot me a PM and I'll re-upload the pictures for you.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Hello,


I believe that was a mistake, but feel free to wait for @Admin's feedback on this. I myself have the box UN-checked. See this here:

Hi there,

Thanks for that, looks like no one (including me) noticed it until now. Razz
I've updated the screenshot. It should indeed be unchecked:

A wise Admin once wrote:

Though one could also argue this way: technically the text of the opening post was there BEFORE (!) the new pictures were re-added, so the text should be given higher priority than those pictures. Of course (and to be fair Very Happy ) this will mainly be noticeable to users who visit the forum somewhat regularly.

In the end, it's good that the pictures + text match.  Carlos is tha man

Hello and welcome to the Forum @D!m3 D!v@,

Sorry to hear you feel disappointed, but none of us have any meaningful Mac OS-knowledge, and hence we cannot give any support on Mac OS-applications either (and no, it's not easy to find good volunteer Helpers for the Forum if you wanted to say that). We traditionally focus on Windows OS-only, so I'm afraid you will have to seek support in this case from more Mac-specialized communities. I'm sorry again.

Hello,

Change all the settings like they are shown in the pictures ! So look at the parts of the pictures that are marked red; then open your uTorrent and find the option that is shown in the picture.

Then just change it to the number that is shown, in the screenshots above.


It shows that I'm seeding but I do not see any upload speeds?

I've put a disclaimer at the top of this guide, that should help (a bit) the people with "I don't get any seeds for The Sims 4" [insert a hundred trillion seed-number here]. A.k.a. uTorrent may have been good in the past, but since I myself even got problems with it - mostly with creating torrents for bigger stuff - I stopped using it. I use qBittorrent, but there are also Tixati, Deluge, Transmission, etc.


@grieralexander wrote:

Sorry for the belated response, that simply means that nobody is connected to you. If you set up everything correctly including your router/modem settings (port forwarding, maybe configuring any router firewalls), then there is nothing to worry about. The item(s) you are seeding are simply not being downloaded, at the given moment.

It's the same with "Downloading". If you're trying to download a dead torrent with 0 seeds, you're technically not downloading anything either. I don't know about other torrent clients, but uTorrent & qBittorrent still show "downloading" in such a case, as well.
