Seed is the place where complete torrent file is saved and serving across the web. Leecher is a person who doesn’t have that file and joined seeds server to download it.

  3. Rajesh says:

    Well, I have followed almost all the tips, but I wasn’t knowing about SG TCP Optimizer. Changing ‘max_halfopen’ to 80 greatly helped me. Sometimes, changing port number too helps.
    Thanks for the great information.

    My broadband internet connection is about 2 mbps speed, but when i download any data it gives only 300 Kbps. so will try your tips to get more speed.

    • it seems your download speed is much better than my download speed

    • Nikhil says:

      it must be 300 KB/s if it is being shown in the client.
      KB=Kilobytes
      Mbps= Mega bits per second
      8 bits = 1 KB
      so 2 Mbps= 2048 Kilobits(kb)= 2048/8 = 256 Kilobytes(KB)
      which means you are getting more speed already.
      the ISP’s state the speed in kilo/mega bits(kb/Mb) whereas the torrent client shows the speed in kilobytes(KB). So you will have to divide the ISP speed by 8 to find the actual limit for torrent clients
      ( this is all on the assumption the that the speed you reported is from the torrent client)

  9. It’s good to know all those ways. These will surely help me out in increasing my torrent downloading speed.
