Is there any way to prevent ISPs from BitTorrent bandwidth throttling? Sometimes my ISP limits BT bandwidth.

Any solution to prevent bandwidth throttling?

view
Vuze Help 7 years 4 months ago mr6n8 It depends on how they throttle. Unfortunately they have gotten rather good at it and for most ISP throttling there is no way around it. Who is your ISP? Steve view

I have only problem with seeding. Downloading/Leeching works without any problem, but when I want to seed a torrent with maximum/unlimited upload speed, it fails. It works with lower speeds but I want to use at least 95% of my maximum upload rate for it. Because it's a big sized torrent and needs good seeding.

I heard using specialized VPNs for BitTorrent communications will solve that. My friend recommended seedboxes to me. Are they useful?

view
Vuze Help 7 years 4 months ago mr6n8 A VPN or seedbox (assuming they support bittorrent) would work, but they cost money. There are free VPNs, but the speeds will not be good. Again, who is your ISP? Is this torrent from a private torrent site? view

Vuze Help: Installing The Mainline DHT Plugin 6 years 9 months ago Timbo

The article is interesting but sadly having followed the DHT suggestion above it has caused huge problems to my Vuze installation (MBP - OSX 10.8.5). I had already sorted Port Direction on my router (Draytek 2820) and thought loading the Mainline DHT plug-in might improve download speeds further. Big mistake. After downloading and re-starting, all my downloading torrents are stuck on Queued. No smileys of any colour. The uploads are happily uploading on green smileys. I used the Open Port Check Tool to test the DHT-nominated port 49001 and I find it is blocked. So a swift uninstall of Mainline DHT. The problem is that it hasn't fixed the Queuing so I have no downloads. Big mess.

view
Vuze Help: Installing The Mainline DHT Plugin 6 years 9 months ago mr6n8 This plugin should have no affect on Queueing and I have not heard of anyone having such an issue. The queue issue probably is coincidental to your install. All this plugin does is allow your client to communicate with clients that use the uTorrent implementation of DHT. Vuze uses a different DHT specification. The vast majority of clients out there use the uTorrent DHT specification. All I can suggest as to the downloads is to check your settings at Azureus>Preferences>Queue (I believe that is how Mac loads options). Particularly the max downloads and max torrents settings. You might also disable the "don't start any new torrents when upload/download limit is reached" as this would queue downloads if the upload limit is reached on seeding torrents. http://wiki.vuze.com/w/UG_Options#Queue_options As to the port for Mainline DHT not being open, this would depend on how you originally set the rules for Vuze ports. If you set for a specific port in the router (as opposed to UPnP or Mac equivalent), then you would need to set a rule for the Mainline DHT port in the router. Same for the software firewall - if you set the exception for the port and not the program, then you would need to set the exception for this port. Steve view
Vuze Help: Installing The Mainline DHT Plugin 6 years 9 months ago Timbo

Firstly, thanks very much for a swift reply.

Your comments about the Vuze Queue settings were interesting. I had a look and discovered that the Max Simultaneous Downloads setting had switched itself (defaulted?) to 4. That explains why only 4 downloads were active at once. So I switched that figure up and many more are now running. Also your suggestion to uncheck the "Don't start any more torrents" etc box was a good one, I did that and speeds improved a little. So those all had an immediate effect - thank you. Overall, all the downloads are now back to actively downloading steadily on green although overall speed is at about 25% of normal, so there are still glitches to fix. In the Tracker Status column, half the downloads show OK and the other half show "OK (UDP Probe)".

On the UDP issue, it's more tricky. I switched UPnP off in Vuze and on the router. I set both TCP and UDP for port 56912 on the router, set both the Call and Data filters in the Draytek router firewall to "Disable" and in Connection in Vuze Preferences set TCP and UDP for 56912. I'm not sure what you mean by the Mainline DHT Port in the router, maybe it's called something else in a Draytek? Then when I do the Vuze NAT/Server Port test it passes TCP but fails UDP. Then when I do the Vuze Network Status test it passes TCP in & out and UDP out but fails UDP inbound.

Does asking TCP and UDP to share a port risk overloading it? Alternatively, is there a self-test feature or plug-in that will establish an open port on the router and thus allow me to enter that figure manually in the router & Vuze settings for UDP?

Now I'm reassured that the plug-in hasn't caused this (!) I'll try to reload it into Vuze.

Thanks for your assistance.

Vuze Help: Installing The Mainline DHT Plugin 6 years 9 months ago mr6n8 " I had a look and discovered that the Max Simultaneous Downloads setting had switched itself (defaulted?) to 4." That should not happen, but I have seen several issues with Vuze configurations and Macs lately as in, things are switching back to original default settings on their own. "although overall speed is at about 25% of normal" Have you tried the guide here on Optimizing Vuze for Speed? http://www.techsupportalert.com/content/optimizing-vuze-speed.htm " half show "OK (UDP Probe)"" That usually means the original trackers are down. As to the port issues, first on the Mainline DHT 49001 - this is a separate port that Vuze will use for this plugin, so a separate rule needs to bet set in your router for this port number (since you set rules for the TCP/UDP port and did not use UPnP - which is OK to do - just that you now need to set a rule for 49001 in the router) "Does asking TCP and UDP to share a port risk overloading it?" No. Having the two share a port is the usual setting for Vuze and all bittorrent clients. As to the UDP issue on 56912, that is trickier. Routers do not block outbound, only inbound. So I would suggest re-checking your rule for UDP and 56912 in the router. Other than UPnP (or NAT-PMP for Mac I believe), there is no automatic way to forward. You could try to reactive those in Vuze and the router and see if that resolves the UDP issue just above. Steve view
Vuze Help: Installing The Mainline DHT Plugin 6 years 9 months ago Timbo

Thanks for your further input.

More developments - I went in to the router and set an additional port 49001 for UDP. I then did the Vuze NAT-Firewall test and - surprise - both the TCP and UDP tested OK on port 56912. Maybe the UDP function needed a return loop via 49001 to make 56912 come alive.

I have re-loaded the mlDHT plug-in and re-launched Vuze. The box at the bottom shows "mlDHT" on its own, no IPv etc - is that right?

But the overriding problem is that speeds have now slowed down even more….. Downloads are mainly green but achingly slow. You kindly suggest visiting the "optimising-vuze-speed" page but that basically steers one through the NAT-Firewall test which now comes out OK. I also did the Vuze Network Status test which produces this result;
0 NAT devices found
No SOCKS proxy found
No HTTP proxy found
No explicit bind address set
Testing HTTP outbound
Test successful
Testing TCP outbound
Test successful
Testing UDP outbound
Test successful
Testing TCP port 56912 inbound
Test successful
Testing UDP port 56912 inbound
Sending outbound packet and waiting for reply probe (timeout=5000)
Sending completion event
Test successful

However, further down that test two fail lines appear;
Outbound connection fail: end of stream on socket read

and after the Outbound Leecher/Seed reports;
No incoming connections received, likely NAT problems

My current total throughput is about 22 kB/s and at full chat over the last few years I would consider 210 kB/s a normal. I have set upload speed on auto and it has settled at 10K. Is there any diagnostic function in Vuze that could help me shed light on the slow throughput?

Thanks again for your detailed consideration of this problem.

Vuze Help: Installing The Mainline DHT Plugin 6 years 9 months ago mr6n8 I would not use the auto speed (any one of them). I have found it to be bad for down speeds and not reliable. The second half of that guide (Adjusting Internal Settings) has information on the correct settings for your internet connection. That guide is going to be more accurate and effective. I would not pay much attention to the Network Status test as there has always been issues with that (though they were supposed to be fixed up mid 2013). If the main NAT/Firewall test is showing OK, then that is really all that should matter. EDIT: I forgot about the Mainline - yes they have changed the look for that and that is all you should see. However, after it has been active for 5-10minutes, you should see some big numbers for IPv4 when you hover over mIDHT with your curser(I am seeing 141 million right now) view

Hello,

Everything was working fine, but now all my downloads dont seem to work. keep getting "ETA" or 1y 65d left for the download to be complete.
tried to change the port alot of times, none seem to make a difference. tried to download "DHT Plugin" and didnt install.

Id really appreciate if someone could help me get the downloads back.

Thanks

Vuze Help: Installing The Mainline DHT Plugin 6 years 9 months ago Timbo

Brilliant - thanks to your sensible advice I'm now back to full speed, all green smileys on downloads and good balanced overall speed spread between each torrent.

I'm so glad you agree that the Vuze Auto-Speed settings are unreliable. I've never found them to work properly for years, on ADSL installations they auto-swallow way too much of the upload bandwidth, thereby compromising the available headroom for the re-send/confirm signals of the downloads. So the downloads end up slower than if one had set the speed oneself. I've set it manually at about one-third of my usual very best upload speed and it's just fine.

IMHO some of the Vuze-related info + set-up pages should be updated with clearer guidance. The Port Selection procedures (especially for Mac owners) should be clarified as the extra 49001 port also needed by UDP doesn't figure prominently.

The Mainline plug-in has bedded-in well. I'm seeing 47 million IPv4.

Many thanks again.

Hi Steve! I have done all the steps and everything seems fine (checked my ports in NAT/Firewall Test and it says Ok, etc.) except for this last step. I was able to download the Main DHT plugin version 1.5 but I never saw the image that last you've posted on your article. So I did the Vuze NAT/Firewall Test and tested the 49001 UDP port, but it gave me this:

Testing port UDP 49001 ...
Sending outbound packet and waiting for reply probe (timeout=5000)
Sending outbound packet and waiting for reply probe (timeout=10000)
Sending outbound packet and waiting for reply probe (timeout=15000)
Sending completion event
NAT Error. Inbound test failed, PRUDPPacketHandler:sendAndReceive failed, Socket is closed.

Can you please help with this one? Thanks in advance!

Vuze Help: Installing The Mainline DHT Plugin 6 years 6 months ago mr6n8 First off the way the plugin shows on the status bar has changed from when I first put up the guide. Now the information only shows when you hover over the mIDHT icon. (I have put up a new image). So, after your Vuze has been open for a while check those numbers by hovering. When I first went to check on my setup after your post, I was getting large numbers showing on the hover info, but I was also failing the UDP test on port 49001. I had to change the port for mIDHT, save and restart and then change back to 49001 and save and restart before I got a pass. You might try that and see if that resolves. If you are showing large numbers on the hover info, then I would not worry about the test. If you are still failing the test and getting no numbers after trying the above, then let me know about any software firewalls and routers/modems on your system. Steve view
Vuze Help: Installing The Mainline DHT Plugin 6 years 6 months ago narutoitachi

Thanks for the help!

I did what you've said and the UDP gives an "ok" result! But I've got a couple of things to clarify if it's okay (sorry if I've got multiple questions.) First is the incoming UDP listen port, what I did was I put a random number there but you said here that you've changed back to 49001 and saved it. So basically, 49001 must be the UDP port and not any random port between 49160-65534?

Second question is about the static IP. My router is Zyxel ZXV10 W300, with firmware version of W300V1.1.0a_ZRD_PH3. I went to NAT>Virtual Server and put two rule indeces, one for the random port number (TCP and UDP) and one for 49001 (UDP). But I was confused when I saw an option of start port number and end port number. What I did is I put the same value for the start port and end port number for both rule indices. Is it right?

view
Vuze Help: Installing The Mainline DHT Plugin 6 years 6 months ago mr6n8 If you are talking about the port for the Mainline DHT plugin, then 49001 is the default port. I had issues with this when I set this port to the same one as my general UDP port for Vuze (the Mainline DHT did not get past initializing). So, I suggest keeping the Mainline DHT port to 49001. The Mainline port was the one that I changed back and forth, not the general UDP port. The general UDP port is best kept to one in the 49160-65534 range. As to the router question, yes putting the port number used as the start and end is correct. Steve view
Vuze Help: Installing The Mainline DHT Plugin 6 years 6 months ago narutoitachi

Thanks again Steve for the enlightenment! I've got scrambled on MiDHT and general UDP port, what I switched was the general UDP port, I put a random number then saved 49001 port and the test result went okay. Upon reading your reply I changed the general UDP back to my original port number and it still worked.

I can't believe that I am getting this quality service for free. A bunch of thanks for you good sir! But another issue is bothering me (I don't know if this is still within your scope but a help/advice from you would be much appreciated). The issue is I and my friend both upgraded to the same internet plan from the same ISP. We have the same speed (1.9-2.0 Mbps/s) as per speedtest.net result, but the thing is she's getting about 20-60 kb/s when downloading through torrent. And before the upgrade, we also have the same plan, the maximum speed that I'm getting is 60 kb/s while she's getting 70-80 kb/s?

view
Vuze Help: Installing The Mainline DHT Plugin 6 years 6 months ago mr6n8 Seems like both of you should be getting better speeds. Though there are a lot of variables in bittorrent speed.

Yes sir, I have successfully done all the steps that you recommended but still there's no increase in my download speed.

To clear out my post before, I and my friend are currently on a up to 2.0 Mbps plan, I'm getting a maximum of 240 kb/s while her maximum is 290+ kb/s. We we're on the same plan before our upgrade, the plan was up to .5 Mbps, and she's still ahead in download speed, getting a max. speed of 80 kb/s, while my download speed on that plan was on max. of 60 kb/s.

Vuze Help: Installing The Mainline DHT Plugin 5 years 10 months ago Pontiac1763

Hi, I've installed the mlDHT plugin and it's visible in the status bar. IPv4 shows large numbers of IP's, IPv6 says 'initializing'. The NAT/Firewall test also gives a pass for port 49001. So this probably means that the installation of the plugin is OK.

The thing that I want to bring up is that when I go to the sources tab of an active torrent, the mlDHT plugin is shown in the sources list, but the plugin never shows any seeds. All the peers are placed in the leechers column, and the seeds column stays zero all the time. Is this as it should be? Why does the mlDHT plugin never have (or show) any seeds? Does this mean that seeds can't establish a connection with my computer, or is this but a glitch in the plugin? My idea is that to all appearances the mlDHT plugin doesn't differentiate between seeds and leechers, marks them all as leachers, and therefore all the peers are placed in the leechers column, but that's just a guess.

Anyone with a solution to this puzzle?

Vuze Meta Search: Adding Search Sites 6 years 10 months ago mr6n8 The moving of the torrent site listing and advanced search should not have affected any of the search templates.

Vuze Meta Search: Adding Search Sites 6 years 10 months ago mr6n8 Yes. That is the site that Vuze is (or should be) getting results from when you add that template in to Vuze. Vuze does not really have any content of its own. The meta search just culls results from torrent search sites on the web that have been added in to the meta search through Vuze search templates. Anyhow, the fact that you can access through the browser makes it very hard to figure what is wrong within Vuze. If you can access a site through the browser, then Vuze should be able to access through the meta search after you have added the template. I know there is nothing rong with the template as it works for both I and your friend. At this time all I can suggest is to delete the template from Vuze and try to re-add it back in. Also, you could just search directly at the site - it probably will return even more results than Vuze does as Vuze limits the amount of results from any given site. view

Vuze Meta Search: Adding Search Sites 6 years 10 months ago mr6n8 I am in the middle of testing for the Best Free Bittorrent Client review here and hope to have a new review up soon. There are several excellent bittorrent clients out there and which is best is a matter of personal preference. Nowadays, my personal preference is for a basic bittorrent client that does the downloading well and has enough information to help keep the torrents fast. I am no longer interested in seeing all the information that some clients offer and having a lot of options to play with. Vuze has a lot of options and some special features (bind to VPN and streaming)that make it appealing to certain users, but I have no need for those. Vuze was my primary choice for several years, but in the past few years I switched to qBittorrent. qBittorrent is small and fast and does have some good features (its torrent search within the client is probably the best - though I do no use it). qBittorrent has consistently tested as the fastest client in my reviews, though several clients are very close. In the past couple years I have been using private sites more and unfortunately, qBittorrent is not accepted at some. So for my private sites I use uTorrent 2.0.4 as it is universally accepted. Anyways, it is best to have two different clients for private and public sites as the client used for private sites should have DHT and PEX disabled, while the public site client should have those enabled. I have been testing uTorrent 2.0.4 in my latest testing and it has performed very well. I was testing it because I do not feel that uTorrent/BitTorrent have made any positive changes in the past few years. There is a good chance that I will be suggesting that over the present versions of uTorrent/BitTorrent. Steve view

Thanks for the fast response and info Steve. I've used Vuze for about 3 years now and followed the developments to the Vuze templates you list on the other site. I always used Vuze because I thought the use of the templates produced the widest range of results. I'm in the UK and use PIA VPN, but I don't really use any of the other advanced Vuze features - I like to get in and get out with what I want without faffing about. For about the last 6 months I've added paid Usenet (NewsHosting) to my searches as this often finds documentaries and rare music that Vuze often can't find.

Does uTorrent have the same kind of templates to Vuze or similar search options to get a wide range of results? Any other info relted to this and on the best way to search is appreciated.

Thanks

Vuze Meta Search: Adding Search Sites 6 years 10 months ago mr6n8 No uTorrent does not have a meta search option like Vuze and if you are using VPN, Vuze is the only client with a built in feature to stop transfers if the VPN fails. Personally, I prefer going directly to the torrent search sites as I can see immediately if the torrent is verified to be clean and real. Then I can read comments about quality. KAT has the best setup for quality comments and that is why it is my number 1 choice. If what I want is not there, then I like to use Torrentz or BitSnoop. Both of these are meta search sites that cull results from many torrent sites and trackers. All 3 of those are available as Vuze search templates, but I find that the search through Vuze does not reveal as many results. For instance a search of potter reveals 25 results at KAT in Vuze and 5,289 at the site. In the site results, you can see the crown image (verified to be clean and real) in the search results, plus you can sort to get to what you want. By checking those 3 and the other sites listed in the Best Free Torrent Search Engines I have always found what I am looking for. As far as the client, I would suggest staying with Vuze since you are using the VPN. Its speeds are very comparable to the other excellent clients and the ability to bind to the VPN is a real plus. Vuze does use more RAM, but the amount it uses (on a modern computer) is negligible. I would suggest trying direct searches and see how you like it. http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-free-torrent-search-engines.htm Steve view

Vuze Meta Search: Adding Search Sites 6 years 8 months ago BanditQuest

Hi Steve,
Although customizing Vuze meta search is tempting it concerns me that it uses IE rendering (I guess activeX) to obtain the search results. That scares the hell out of me as Internet Explorer is the absolute LAST browser on earth I would use - I only use it when all else fails. You need to be absolutely running the latest version of IE (even then I would still not use it). Like you I just go to my web browser and do searching with a couple of plugin tools to help me. Some older versions of IE (eg IE6) don't create the meta search properly you get messed up font sizes and layout etc.

Is it worth bring this to the attention of your readers?

There is supposed to be a way to use mozilla rendering instead of activeX but like a lot Vuze a lack of documentation on how to do it - sigh - I gave up. Any chance you may have looked at XUlRunner?

view
Vuze Meta Search: Adding Search Sites 6 years 8 months ago mr6n8 I have been meaning to post an opening paragraph encouraging users to go directly to torrent search sites and forgo the Meta Search. A good part of the reason being the fact that Vuze uses IE for rendering at default. Unfortunately, my time has been spread thin lately. As to the Mozilla part of your question, I have been tangling with this for years. About the time of your post, someone posted at the Vuze forum about this and I set out again for an answer. I believe this time I have found the answer. If you want to be a tester for this to make sure, I would appreciate it. If it works out for you, then I will post a guide. Nothing bad can happen from testing. Are you running a 32 bit version of Firefox? view

Hi :)

I have installed a few new templates into vuze and some of them open another interface inside of vuze with another search engine, for example the Torrent Downloads.vuze template does this, which when finding and selecting what I want, brings me to a webpage in the browser. If I then download I get an executable file, exampleMovie.exe and I'm not sure what to do with this. I'm also not sure if I can trust it because I haven't experienced this up till now.

I'd appreciate if someone could let me know. Do I double click the .exe file, or drop it into vuze somehow? I tried opening the file from vuze open menu but it seems to only see .vuze files.

Thanks!

Are there any other templates that are opening a web page when you press "Download"? I do not have them all installed at this time. However, the couple I checked are working properly.

I would suggest that you look in to getting the Ad Block Plus addon for your browser. This will block the scam download links at the torrent search sites. I would also suggest using the kickass template. The download button is working properly. The details button will take you to the page so you can confirm the torrent is clean and real. Steve view

Hi Steve,
Thanks for the warning and tips. That template was very overactive, finding everything that other templates couldn't find so I was quite suspicious.
I've been googling how to remove this dodgy template but instructions so far have been over complicated. Can you pease demystify?
I'll gladly report the rest to you. Si far I think another one could be Internet Archive.vuze
Thanks again,
Sca

Vuze Meta Search: Adding Search Sites 6 years 6 months ago mr6n8 To delete a template, press the Add/Edit button and on the Add/Edit screen next to the template name is an "X". Press the X to delete the template. http://postimg.org/image/t1y49r7cn/ I did not have that issue with Archive (that template is included at default with Vuze). Thanks again for the update on that site. I am glad I got rid of it. Steve view
Vuze Meta Search: Adding Search Sites 6 years 6 months ago mr6n8 You might also consider going directly to the sites to search, rather than using the meta search within Vuze. I prefer this as I get to see information on whether a torrent is "verified" in the search results, it is easier to see the comments and there are more results. http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-free-torrent-search-engines.htm view

Thank you :)

Would I need to register with all those sites to use them?

You asked me to report more templates within vuze that seem dodgey to me.
What about TorrentProject?

Right now it's the only one that's come up with a lot of hits for something that's just been released. The hits all look okay but I'm not sure if I can trust it.

Greets and thanks again,

Sca

James Gart's webpage for Wallpaper Master is not responding. I have one on my desktop and one on my laptop, but they have different menus, and I don't know why. Has any developer taken over from James Gart? I've used this program for years. My only complaint is the limit on number of photos that can be in the source file. Otherwise it's great.

Going by the logo and the grille, that's a 1951

Thanks bunches! I updated the article description and also tracked down the wallpaper at a new site and changed the link.

Here's the link for the wallpaper:

It really helps when you mention things like this, I don't have the ability to write new articles and also check all the previous articles I've written to keep things up to date. :(

I'm glad you like it. I like backgrounds like this with good contrast and not a lot of movement. :)

Would like to have a darker, maybe blue background instead of white.
Don't play with graphics much, but it shouldn't be that hard.

I think so too. I prefer darker backgrounds for wallpapers so desktop icons are easier to see.
