    I was wondering why i cant connect to very many seeds. For example, right now my download is connected to 35 out of 508 seeds and is going 16kb/sec max. Why can I not connect to more? I already did the TCP/IP hack thing and made my max number of open ports 100, and i still can barely connect.

    You're on Shaw, take a guess. ;)

    Make sure encryption is on, your ports are forwarded and no firewall is in the way.

    Just because there are 508 seeds, it doesn't mean there are 508 people who are either connectible themselves or haven't already allocated all of their upload slots

    Ack, mixing up topics, sorry.

    Preferences > Bittorrent > Protocol Encryption > Outgoing: Forced > [x] allow incoming legacy connections.
