I was just trying to purchase a Free Trial of VIP, why did I end up here? Click HERE 7. I have confirmed that I have the required 40,000 points, now where can I purchase the free trial? Assuming you haven't already used your free trial there will be one offered at http://vip.bitcomet.com If you are returned to this website that will indicate that you don't have enough points. You can then continue to use bitcomet and wait, or you can purchase one of the other plans offered. 8. I have purchased a VIP plan and am not happy with the performance? In most cases this is either because of a problem with the VIP servers or the tasks run do not have available resources so it's impossible to improve the download speed. You can ask for help in the forum after reading the "READ THIS before posting" topic, or if you would like a refund the fastest way is to open a dispute with PayPal and they will refund your payment.

    Dear users, You are unable to purchase a Free Trial for VIP acceleration if your Comet ID score is below 40,000 points. Due to the vast number of free-trial users when our VIP service originally launched, the servers were becoming overloaded and unresponsive, therefore, not providing quality service for neither our free, nor our paid users. We have found it necessary to put a limit on free users until the kinks and bugs are worked out of the system, and we can provide a positive experience for all users. Currently you will need 40,000 points to activate the free trial. We have lowered this limit from 80,000 initially and hope to lower it further after VIP moves out of Beta Testing phase. Kind Regards, The BitComet Team

    Please Note: READ THIS before posting, announcements are being added to some of the sections, with specific requirements of what info is required to assist members. We are seeing an increasing number of members asking for assistance, but not providing even the most basic of information, such as what version of Bit Comet they are using, what type of internet connection, router, modem, version of windows etc... This only wastes your time and ours, so provide as much info in your first post, and we will be glad to assist you.

    To all new BitComet Members who have registered at our Forum: Welcome! ;) As I'm fully aware that no one here really bothers to read everything we type up, I would highly recommend you to read our Forum Rules before posting your first post. I would imagine that the reason why you have registered at our forum is mainly because you have an issue either our client, or the torrents.

For any NON-ENGLISH discussions, please head to our International Section Look around our Forum, and post your issue into the appropriate Sub-Forum. If unsure, just post your question into the closest-related sub-forum. But do not post in Guides BitComet Team Staff List If there are any issues that you feel must be dealt privately with, please PM any of our staff by clicking on their name below: - Rnysmile - Manager for developing BitComet client & Beta Releases, main administrator. wxhere - Leader of the BitComet development team.

    To the original poster, I can't really comment on what your SS8 is reporting because it's not in English. To everyone concerned about CometID, yes it's down, this happens sometimes with websites just like it does with your personal computer, errors occur and need to be fixed. Large commercial websites like Google and Amazon have many backup servers running and staff on duty 24/7 to fix problems, but BitComet being a free service is maintained by volunteers and it will be fixed as soon as someone on the development team has the time to fix it. I have notified them of the outage and I expect it will be up and running by monday, if not sooner. In the mean time you can continue to use BitComet, it will still work as good as any other bittorrent client and only some of it's more advanced features like LTseed snapshots, search for mirrors etc will be effected by the outage.

    BitComet Anonymous Download is our latest addition to our VIP service. With Anonymous Download our VIP members can download any BitTorrent task without directly connecting to the torrent tracker or any of the peers. How does Anonymous Download work? When a user enables VIP on a task, they will see an option for "anonymous download" (version 1.28 and above). When enabled, our VIP server will start the task and begin downloading the data on behalf of the BitComet VIP user. Our VIP servers are state of the art high speed servers and can download the files much faster then any user on a residential internet connection. Our servers will look for peers first in BitComet's Proprietary LTseed network. If sufficient resources are available there, then it will have no need to connect to the bittorrent swarm at all. If it is necessary to connect to bittorrent peers, it will be the VIP servers very fast upload speed that will get the fastest possible download speed*. What about seeding the files I download, I don't want to be a leech? BitComet has carefully considered this issue and we are confident that nearly all bittorrent tasks will be seeded to a ratio much higher then 1:1 (or 1.0 share ratio). Our Servers can upload extremely fast, so as soon as the VIP server downloads any part of the bittorrent task, it will offer it to all peers in the swarm. In a healthy (hungry) torrent, a typical 1gB task will upload several times the total downloaded. By using BitComet VIP service, your not only helping yourself, but also the entire swarm and general health of the torrent, after all, this is what p2p is all about. What if the torrent has no other downloaders and the VIP server is unable to seed back the torrent? Unfortunately this is a possibility, but such conditions do exist and in this rare case our VIP servers are coded to continue the upload for an additional Two Hours after the download is complete. If it is unable to upload to a share ratio greater then 1.0 in that time, it will (unfortunately) have to abandon the task. However, a 1gB task can easily be uploaded several hundred times over with our VIP servers in the time period of two hours, so we feel this is more then sufficient and will make BitComet VIP users among the best peers in any swarm. How can I be sure that the files I'm downloading cannot be traced to my IP address? Anonymous VIP downloading does not connect to any bittorrent peers, torrent trackers, dht networks, or peer exchange. Connections are only made to our VIP servers which are designed to run the task, holding the data in memory only long enough to complete the cycle of downloading and uploading, and to send the data to the VIP client. When this is complete, the task is purged along with all the data downloaded. We keep no records whatsoever in regards to what you downloaded. How can this be anonymous when we have to send payment information to purchase a VIP plan? Quite simple, VIP is a download acceleration service. We don't provide any of the data you are downloading, we only use our technology to help you get it faster and more secure. The only records kept are that you purchased a VIP plan and how much of it you may have used. There is no distinction between basic acceleration and anonymous downloading. What if I'm very concerned about privacy and don't want any Bank records showing that I purchased a plan? We accept major credit and debit cards as well as paypal. If a user is that concerned about records, they may purchase a prepaid debit card and register using any name they wish, then use the debit card directly, or though paypal, however this really is unnecessary as VIP downloading is completely legal and just as your ISP is not allowed to violate your privacy by keeping records, we too keep no records. Will there be a performance difference between VIP acceleration and Anonymous Download? With traditional VIP acceleration, BitComet will connect to trackers and obtain peer lists then the job of downloading the files is split between your local connection and BitComet's VIP servers. In some cases this may be faster then Anonymous Downloading. Users with slower connections will probably find either service equally fast, while users on extremely fast connections may find VIP acceleration to be faster then Anonymous Download. Will there be any Free Trials of this service? Yes, we offer a basic 10gB free trial to users with a score at or above 40,000 points. As mentioned in a public announcement, when VIP first begun we allowed all users access to our free trial, but the result was thousands upon thousands of free users each day, which was unexpected and our servers weren't prepared for such a heavy load. We have been upgrading and purchasing new servers in anticipation of the release of Anonymous Download, so we should be able to handle any number of users. Please note that the former limit of 80,000 points to qualify for a free trial has now been lowered to 40,000. Will I be able to share the files I downloaded with other users through the LTseed network, and if so, will that be done anonymously? Yes, anonymous tasks can be shared via LTseed and BitComet will hide your IP address on any connections you make with other peers. During these connections it could be possible for someone monitoring network traffic to discover IP addresses using 3rd party tools, but considering that the LTseed network is completely separate from the bittorrent network and that no peer can connect to more then 40-102 LTseed peers at any time, it would be extremely unlikely that sharing via LTseed could ever be a security threat to any user, but those who are overly concerned about privacy may wish to disable LTseed on anonymous downloads just to be sure they are 100% anonymous. Work In Progress: These FAQs will be added to wiki.bitcomet.com when Anonymous Download is added to BitComet stable release. *With all bittorrent downloads, the presence of sufficient resources is required to download the task. If there are no sources, then a bittorrent task cannot finish, but in some cases the task can complete from LTseed sources.

    If members have any account problems or questions related to your VIP plan or ability to use it, then you MUST send a PM (private message) to queeniequ. She is our representative from the Development Team and the only person who can look up your account and fix any errors you might be having. When you message her, please include your Comet ID name and, if there was a problem with the purchase, also include your transaction number. If you have any questions on how the service works or other related questions for our Support Team, then make a post in this forum and we'll do our best to help you.

    The server is down - until the net admins fix that nobody is going to gain points. It's not that big of a deal anyway - to me the 'ranking' is just a bit of fun. I've never seen more than a handful of long term seeders anyway so it's no material benefit. It's not as though you could buy beer with them :rolleyes: <_< :)

    Don't worry, this happens from time to time. It won't affect the bitcomet client functionality much but you won't get any points added to your score until you can login again. Bitcomet is supported by volunteers so there is no 24/7/365 team to sort it out immediately. Just be patient and it will be back soon :-)

    Warning System + Suspension/Ban The BitComet Forum hopes that all members will their stay at our Forum, abiding by our Rules. Most members who join our forum actually read our rules before clicking the "I Agree" button within the registration field, and abide by these rules. However, there are some sad people who register at our Forum, intending to post site links to Pornographic Material, Advertising Viagra and, yes, virus-contained sites. Due to increasing number of members who fail to follow our simple rules, the Warning System of this Forum has been activated. It's going to be a very simple system, all members who've joined our forum will receive a maximum of 3 Warnings. After 3 Warnings, members will have their account suspended according to the number of offenses they've committed (i.e. If you break 5 rules, you get 5 days' worth of suspension). Should you fail to abide by our rules after this suspension, you will be banned. Don't think about registering again, for your IP & IP Range will be banned accordingly by administrators/moderators. Just think of this system like a game of Cricket, 3 warnings, you're out of here. All Moderators & Administrators have the power the Suspend & Ban as they see fit. If you believe that they have warned you inappropriately, please send an E-mail at: bitcomet.admin@gmail.com outlining your circumstances, as well as the Moderator. However, if we deem your actions to be worthy of a BAN, we will BAN you! NOTE: All users of this forum can see their "Rating" System, this is an indication of your current disciplinary status. It will be decreased accordingly, if we see that your behaviour has improved. *Warning System - ON *Bad Word Filter - ON

    Welcome all to the new BitComet forum! You may be wondering why our previous 'discuzz' BitComet forum was offline for a while, well, it was due to Aimee's efforts that we could get this IPB forum up and running! As usual, the same rules apply here, you'll notice a copy of the rules seen in the top bar of the forum. If you have any queries regarding these rules, please do not hesitate to PM us for clarification, or an improvement of the rules. Just a quick and final reminder. In this sub-forum - 'New Members' Report!' Please avoid posting your client/torrent issues direct, otherwise it'll become really congested, and this may confuse new members into thinking that help can be asked anywhere within the forum. We thank you for your co-operation, and look forward to discussing any of your torrent/client concerns.

    I finally reached the rank of Marshall after after almost 9 years since this system was added to bitcomet. Ranks yet to achieve are Generalissimo, and Sovereign. I know many others have reached these ranks long ago and even though I've been running these support forums for almost as long as BitComet has existed it doesn't mean I'm a huge downloader, in fact most of my activity is centered around sharing fan produced science fiction, so virtually all my activity is uploads for new releases, so growth has been sporadic. It will be interesting to see what rank everyone else is at.

    How to add a screenshot to your post (simplified version) Hello to all, Here, I'll try to explain, in a very simple manner, the option of how to upload and include a screenshot in your post. Once we see the image that we wish to capture, press "Alt" and "Impr pant", at the same time. (That's the "Print Screen" key, on an English keyboard.) This will take an image of the active window and copy it to the Clipboard. Open a blank document in MSPaint and press "Ctrl" and "v" simultaneously. This will 'paste' said image from the Clipboard to your Paint document. (If MSPaint wants to resize the document, agree. ) If you wish to edit something in the image (for example, hide/smudge your IP, highlight something, crop the margins, etc.), now is the time to do so. Afterwards, under the "File" menu, press "Save as..." (choose a name for it) in .JPG format (this saves our bandwidth...), and place it wherever you like..., your Desktop, for example. When it's time for you to include your image in your post, simply follow the picture shown below: 1. Press 'Examine' and find the desired image in your computer. 2. Press ""Attach This File". Your image's file will appear, along with its corresponding size (3.). Note: Make sure that no individual file is larger than the maximum size allowed (shown in green), and that you do not exceed your personal global upload quota (shown in blue). 4. Once you have followed step 2., place and click your cursor where you want the image to appear, and press "Add to Post". Continue to finish your post and press "Preview Post" and/or "Post New Topic". It's that simple. :)

    Welcome to the Official BitComet Forum! From the moment you register as a member of our Forum, you will be subject to the rules stated below. Please read them carefully. Failing to follow the rules may result in a ban. Hopefully, that won't be the case. So, enjoy your time on our Forum. We'll try to provide assistance here for most of your torrent or BitComet-related problems. As always, we value your feedback or any new features you'd like to see in the next BitComet release, so please post your feedback at: BitComet Client Suggestions and Feature Request. Also, do not regard this forum only as a BitTorrent technical support area, but feel welcome to stay for a while, and have a chat in our Lounge [General Discussion Board]. That being said, please read the following rules carefully: DO NOT ask for RESEEDS, SEEDS, TORRENT/FILE PASSWORDS, ANY direct download links, or make any TORRENT REQUESTS, as we do not host any downloadable file. We cannot and will not give links to direct downloads, due to the extremely complex issues related to Internet Piracy. Discussions relating to the practice of software piracy (including where to get warez), computer hacking, cracking, phreaking and anything generally illegal or immoral are forbidden. Discussions of things that are fattening are, unfortunately, still permitted. B) Direct links to warez sites, cracks, hacks (i.e. illegal hosting of applications or games) within the posts of the BitComet Forum are not allowed, nor is uploading of such files on the Forum. We emphasize that we DO NOT APPROVE of this. Should you spot any of these on this Forum feel free to report that to any member of the moderating team. Members are reminded that, if they do post direct download links, their post(s) will be deleted ASAP, without prior notice. However a PM will be sent to the user, reminding him/her of this rule and/or the warning status will be raised. Repeatedly, failing to comply to this rule will eventually end up with a BAN promptly issued to the member. Additionally, members are reminded that in posting direct links to file downloads which are in violation of copyright laws, they may be subject to International Piracy Laws, which will not be imposed upon Bitcomet or its staff, but only on the author of the post himself/herself. When posting technical support questions/answers related to a specific problem, however, feel free to send/ask for PMs containing a link to the site where you obtained the torrent file. This is sometimes quite important, since the torrent file itself could outline issues such as tracker problems, seeding, etc., helping out to find the cause of the problem. Standard Forum Manners are expected: Introducing yourself to our forum is a good thing to do! You can introduce yourself at: New Members' Report! However, please refrain from posting your technical issues directly in that section of the forum. Flaming is not welcome here. Keep it civil and polite. You reap what you sow. Post in the 'most' correct section. Posts made in a random or unrelated section may be moved or deleted without prior notice to the user. Do not double post. Your question will be answered if/when someone who knows the answer logs on, sees the issue, and replies to it. Do not post in a topic unless you have something to add/ask regarding the exact subject of discussion of the topic. Posting your own different problem/question unrelated to the discussed subject, into someone else's topic, is frowned upon, on this forum. Start your own topic instead. Do not necropost. Unless you have a very good reason for reviving an old, dead topic do not post in one. Instead start a new thread. As a thumb rule, any new post in a topic where the last post is older than 3 weeks (maximum 1 month) is usually considered necroposting. This doesn't apply, however, to pinned topics such as the discussions topic for the Port Forwarding guide or the Private Trackers topic. When replying, do not quote the post you're replying to, unless necessary. Most times, it's not necessary. It's especially not necessary when the message is immediately above yours. When you DO quote a message, there is no need to quote the whole post; keep, instead, only the line(s) to which you're referring and delete the rest, to keep the topic in an easy-to-read format. Links to other sites are permitted, provided that they are not Pornographic, Warez or Referral sites: Respect other users' bandwidth, so avoid using Direct URLs/Links (Hot-linking), especially without giving credit . Advertising is not tolerated within the BitComet Forum. Personal sites such as Blogs, Spaces, funny links, etc., are allowed. But do NOT link to "forced sign-ups or voting" links. These links will be removed immediately, without prior notice. Additional measures may be taken upon the user, depending on the severity of the advertisement. The administrators and moderators are the sole judges of what constitutes a violation of these rules. The forum is not a democracy and you don't get a vote. We expect you to use Common Sense within the Forum: (If you don't have any, at least try for courtesy) Usernames must be 'appropriate'. Pornographic or offensive names are forbidden and will be deleted. If you have been banned permanently, or temporarily, do not come and enter this Forum, nor create a new user account. Doing so, will only lead to an extended ban. If you feel that you have been banned unfairly, or feel that you should be un-banned after a period of time, e-mail us at: support@bitcomet.com. This Forum is not for trading/selling/buying items or services (including invitations to other sites), so do not create such posts or topics. They will be deleted. So will you. If you want your username changed, your account deleted, or similar issues, please send a personal message to an Administrator. The BitComet Site & BitComet Forum: Criticizing BitComet Staff, the Main Site, the Forum staff or the Forum itself, without any constructive arguments (i.e., just to rag on or b**** at us or at BitComet) will not be tolerated. Feedback or 'constructive argument' is appreciated; feedback from BitComet users is greatly appreciated. If ever in doubt regarding any issues related to our Forum or website, do not hesitate to contact an Administrator or Moderator [by e-mail or PM], or e-mail us at support@bitcomet.com [Rest assured, this e-mail can and only will be read by Administrators]. The decisions of Administrators & Moderators are final. Arguing against our decisions will coincide with our Standard Rules, since our decisions are based upon the simple 'common-sense' rules outlined so far. However, should you feel that our decision was influenced or was incorrect in some manner, please contact an Administrator. All of the Staff have non-paid positions, and give their time freely. Therefore, they are exempt from most minor rules, except for the most severe, which involve the Staff themselves. All the Staff here are human, just like all the users who've joined this forum, so we do make mistakes, although our decisions are mostly final, within reason. Should we require Staff, we will post within the Announcements for Staff openings, or, you may receive a PM from BitComet Staff, to join our ranks. Note: All of the Rules above, are subject to change without prior notice. We will try to give you advance notice of any really radical new rule changes.

    VBF, I must say I don't like your tone. You are speaking to a member of development here, a team who despite the busy schedules and day jobs which pay their bills, donate time to provide you and other users with this FREE product, and producing this product is their domain, however this community forum is my domain and I will NOT allow it to become a means to attack or insult our development team using ignorance and false information. I do encourage open discussion of such serious topics as this, but you don't seem to even grasp the understanding of the basic terms, such as calling this false positive detection a "virus" and a "trojan" in the same sentence. If in fact there was an actual threat it couldn't be both, a Trojan is very different than a Virus, and your security program incorrectly detected a "trojan", defined as a program that installs without your permission or while claiming to be something different than what it actually does, and there is no evidence or any suggestion (other than yourself) that it contains any type of virus. We've also proven there is no Trojan which you can confirm using the "Total Virus" website which tests BitComet 1.44 using the top 54 anti-virus programs and 100% of them test it as clean (verified just minutes before making this post). We also had another member making the same report, he too was rude and declined to have an honest and intelligent conversation so he was removed... although his topic remains, and if you want to remain part of this community, then I will require you to speak with respect to those providing you with this great (and free) software. Please feel free to ask any questions and research any answers we give you, and feel free to redress any issues you don't agree with based on FACT, not ignorance. The FACT is your security software made a mistake and you are embarrassing yourself by ranting about it. The mature adult thing to do if you get such a detection is to ask politely in our forum, scan it with more apps to get their opinions, and most of all educate yourself as to exactly what your app claims or suspects it found. In this case it is a 100% legit app that is used to offer other software for your consideration, all of which can be easily deselected if not interested. As for "Aliexpress", it is a website similar to eBay that sells goods, mostly from Asia and I've purchased many hard to find parts from them and found them reliable and trustworthy, and you don't have to install their app to use their website, but if you do install one of the offered apps it could make the difference between bitcomet continuing development, or stopping completely. They have bills due each month to pay for the costs of running this forum, the LTseed system, CometID servers, and more, and since donations are few, the only viable method to cover the costs is to bundle apps, and as long as InstallCore is used according to the rules, it's 100% legit and not a threat of any kind, and I'm certain if your anti virus re-evaluates BitComet it will agree. This is really simple, it's not rocket science, a "trojan" is NOT a virus, it's a computer program, and in order to be considered a trojan it has to deceive you as to it's function, or install without notification or a way to opt out, and any of the 54 programs that may have previously detected it as suspect has reclassified it as safe, which proves what I told you in my first reply, so feel free to ask any questions you may have, but any further impolite or sarcastic comments and you will be removed until such time that you can behave as an adult in a civilized manner. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

    Dear BitComet Forum Members, In light of some uncertainties raised by several members including our staff of the running of this sub-forum.

Spam is strictly prohibited here, as are meaningless posts/topics just to gain Post Counts. Advertising of ANY SORT (e.g. Selling Viagra, Pornographic sites) are NOT ALLOWED! Advertising Torrent sites and forums are allowed, but only in designated areas. You may also discuss things related to such sites. Not sure where you should post? If you issue is specifically with the BitComet Client If you wish to discuss with users your issue with your Router, Torrent Downloads, Click Here Rules Updated - 27th August, 2009 All BitComet Forum Staff, if you believe any modification of the rules is required, feel free to edit it.

    here's another clue: go to this directory C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\BitComet\torrents pick a torrent for testing. open the XML file that has the same name as the torrent. in version 1.41, when i unselect a file, the xml element "\\Bitcomet\FileList\FileEntry" will have an attribute priority="-1" in version 1.42, when i unselect a file, the xml element "\\Bitcomet\FileList\FileEntry" will have an attribute priority="-4294967295" in version 1.42, as long as bitcomet doesn't get restarted, it will still remember the file selections. i'm guessing when it restarts, somewhere in the program is reading the xml file and looking for possible values of "-1" or "1" or "2" etc, but actual value is something else, so it just took the default which is to select the file.

    We can only help you if you provide us with details about how you have configured your version of BitComet. This strongly suggests that you have NOT configured your client properly We NEVER ask stupid questions...and, for the recod, BitComet was not available in 1996. Obvisously, on your side everything is NOT OK, otherwise your BitComet would work just as well as, for example, uTorrent (better, in fact) BitComet cannot block you. Rather than rant and complain about BitComet, why don't you tell us exactly what steps you have followed to configure your client? As you claim to have a vast history/experience in using this and other torrenting clients for almost 20 years, this should not pose any problems, right??

    Bitcomet requires a new look. It looks old and unattractive compared to other torrent downloaders with modern look on them such as utorrent, flashget, vuze. :) I hope the bitcomet team will do something about this.

    To everyone concerned about CometID, yes it's down, this happens sometimes with websites just like it does with your personal computer, errors occur and need to be fixed. Large commercial websites like Google and Amazon have many backup servers running and staff on duty 24/7 to fix problems, but BitComet being a free service is maintained by volunteers and it will be fixed as soon as someone on the development team has the time to fix it. I have notified them of the outage and I expect it will be up and running by monday, if not sooner. In the mean time you can continue to use BitComet, it will still work as good as any other bittorrent client and only some of it's more advanced features like LTseed snapshots, search for mirrors etc will be effected by the outage.

    Im a new user of bitcomet, previous to this I was a long time Utorrent user. I going to say up front that I like Utorrent a lot, I really enjoy its simplistic interface. However, Bitcomet has blown me away with functionality. First off, I was getting 1MB average download with the occasional 1.2MB burst with Utorrent. I have a 12 mb connection, so an average utilisation of 66% is pretty good considering I live with 4 other people. Since I switched to Bitcommet I've been getting an average of 1.2MB and busts of 1.4MB speeds, and increase of nearly 20%. That was enough to sway my favor even though the first few days were a little weird with it and how it worked. Thats not all, It has integration with the eMule network. Being a bittorrent user, understanding eMule has been a little bit of a challenge and i've put it off for now. But having access to a whole other peer network is amazing. Then you have the torrent exchange function. The ability to select and download torrents without having to use a website like TPB, is an unbelievably cool factor, and it expands by downloading torrents from other bitcomet users who also use torrent exchange. Over all, I like Bitcomet over all other clients, and I especially love the bittorrent community. Seed for life :)

    I'd recommend you start with the Wiki and peruse most of the topics. There are especially a couple of topics for beginners that will be useful to you, especially those in the BitComet Tutorial and BitComet User Interface sections, as well as the first section of the FAQ (Understanding BitComet). BitTorrent is pretty different from the eDonkey protocol and the general logic behind the BitTorrent clients is rather non-intuitive until you read and comprehend it a bit. Before you wrap your mind around a few basics you'll be fumbling in the dark, mostly, if you try to compare it to other sharing networks so, I'll say "happy reading", wherever you may choose to do it. P.S. as a bonus you will find out that BitComet integrates the eMule client as a plugin, in order to perform cross-protocol downloads when the same file is available on both networks. But that's already an advanced topic that you need not bother with at present time.

    Wake up man! Bitcomet is a tool. What you do with it is your own responsibility. If you bought a knife and, instead of cutting your bread or meat with it, you stabbed somebody, would you be wondering if there is any 'help' from the knife factory, in the matter of a lawsuit?

    No, I don't think we understand what you mean. "I mean you be safe and secret IP address for personal information in bitcomt torrent" What do you mean by "safe" and "secret IP" As far as your personal information, bitcomet cannot give any of your information to anyone. I also don't know what you mean by "bitcomet torrent" When you download any torrent with any client (not just bitcomet), you're making connections with many other users to trade pieces, you cannot trade pieces with someone if they don't know your IP address.

    BitDave and his collaborators wrote this guide in 2006 using version 0.70 While it is outdated, the issues it covers are still the same and you should have little trouble figuring out how to set things in current versions of BitComet. These are my settings for v0.70, hopefully they help you figure out yours :) If this guide doesn't help then make a new thread with your problem or question and please always include the following information so we can help you: ISP: SBC-Yahoo DSL Download Speed: 1.5 Mbits/s == 192 KBytes/s (Bitcomet uses Bytes) Upload Speed: 384 Kb/s == 48 KB/s (notice the distinction between b & B) Hardware: My DSL modem is bridged to a Dlink Wifi Router that serves 2 Desktops & 2 Laptops OS: Windows XP-SP2 fully updated AntiVirus: AVG free Software Firewall: Kerio free (I have the XP-SP2 firewall service disabled in services.msc) AntiSpyware: Spybot S&D, Adaware SE, SpywareBlaster and of course HijackThis Only use my settings as a reference, decide for yourself what yours should be PS: here's some more handy freeware to clean up all your crap ;) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I will show a screenshot of my settings first, then explain the important settings The first thing you need to do is test the speed of your internet connection Go Here and choose a test server near your location. do not have anything using the internet while doing a test --Example-- --My ISP says i get a maximum 1.5 Mb/s download and 384 Kb/s upload --When i did a speed test it said that i only get 1440 Kb/s and 320 Kb/s --Now change the results of the test from bits to Bytes --( 1440 Kbps / 8 ) == 180 KB/s download --( 320 Kbps / 8 ) == 40 KB/s upload --These are the 'real world' speeds that my ISP gives me Global Max Download Rate: Normally leave this on No Limit If Bitcomet is maxing out your download speed and you are having problems browsing, then use ~80% (for me 180 * 0.8 = 144 KB/s) Global Max Upload Rate: It is very important to set this to ~80% of your tested upload speed If you're sharing your connection with others you may want to lower this some more, especially if they also use p2p If you set this too high then your download will be slow and you will have problems browsing. If you set this too low then other peers will not want to trade with you. (for me 40 * 0.8 = 32 KB/s) Max Simultaneous Download Tasks: Base this setting on your Global Max Upload Rate For most standard DSL/Cable connections you should set this to 1 or 2 If you try to run a lot of popular torrents all at once, you will lose a lot of bandwidth to overhead. Overhead is the extra bandwidth needed for negotiating with other peers. This means that you will have less upload bandwidth available for actually transferring files. If you aren't transferring files well, then your download speed will suffer because other peers won't want to trade with you. Try to have at least 8 KB/s of upload bandwidth available for each task (for me 32 / 8 = 4, but i chose 3 so that each task gets 12 KB/s) Listen Port: Pick any number within this range--> 49154 - 65534 If you connect to the internet through a router then you need to forward Bitcomet's Listen Port This guide will help you figure out if you have a router (some modems are also routers) Also make sure that Bitcomet is allowed through any software firewall you may have (e.g. Kerio, Sygate, Comodo, Norton, Mcafee, etc) If you only use the built in XP-SP2 firewall, then you don't need to configure it because Bitcomet can automatically do it for you. --> To test whether your Listen Port is open; start a torrent and wait about one to five minutes. --> Now look in the Peers tab; If you see any "Remote" initiations then your port is open. --> If they are all "Local" or "NAT Traversal" then you still have something blocking your port No Listening Mode: Avoid using this mode This mode should only be used if you have no control over the router(corporate/colleges). This mode will greatly reduce your rates. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Default Download Path: C:\Program Files\Bitcomet\Downloads This is where you can find all the files you have downloaded. If you are running out of room and have a second drive, you might want to point your default location there instead (ex. D:\Shared). Changing the default location won't affect downloads currently in progress, nor will it move them for you. It will only affect new downloads. Do not prompt when add new task: Depends on User Check this option to automatically start a task when it is added. Useful for RSS feeds Allocate Disk Space Before Downloading: Depends on User When you choose this option, BitComet will "reserve" the full amount of disk space that the file will need as soon as you start the torrent. You might not want it to do that, especially if disk space is tight. If you disable the option, then BitComet will only allocate the space that it currently needs, and the file size will gradually grow to the full amount as the download progresses. This won't make the finished file take up less room, but you'll have plenty of time to move things around, burn completed downloads to CD or DVD, and generally manage your disk space to make enough room while the download is in progress. On the other hand, some prefer to be warned that they are running short of space ahead of time, and BitComet will refuse to start the torrent if it can't preallocate enough space. Add .bc! Extension to Incomplete File: Depends on User When this option is enabled, BitComet will add ".bc!" to the end of the file extension. Instead of MyDownload.rar the filename will be changed to MyDownload.rar.bc! in the directory listing. BitComet will change the extension back to normal when the download completes. This is useful because you can tell from a glance at the directory, which files are incomplete. It will also save you the mistake of trying to use an incomplete file. Everything else should be self explanatory --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Again things are self explanatory as you will notice I dont browse the web at all through Bitcomet (uncheck Show Welcome Page & Open URL inside Bitcomet) Instead I use firefox and just bookmark all my favorite torrent sites --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- no need to explain anything here --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Enable DHT Network: Checked Some routers dont handle the DHT Network properly and may disconnect -> read here The DHT Network is not necessary for downloading; but it can be useful when you are unable to connect to the tracker(s), or when the tracker doesn't give you any seeds. See here for more details If you're on a slow connection (upload speed < 256Kb) or pay per MB then you might want to disable the DHT Network to reduce overhead --You need to restart Bitcomet if you change this setting for it to take effect-- Enable NAT/Firewall Configuration ICS/ICF (XP or later only): Depends on User This will automatically configure the rules in Windows ICS and/or the Windows ICF for you. I suggest you leave this Checked, since it doesnt hurt anything even if you dont need it. I have the Windows XP firewall (ICF) disabled and I dont connect through another Windows XP computer (ICS); so I have this option Unchecked. Enable UPnP Port Mapping (XP or later only): Depends on User Check this option if you want Bitcomet to automatically set up your router's portforwarding --you need to have UPnP enabled in your router and in Windows XP for it to work-- Uncheck this option if you manually configured the portforwarding in your router. Remove Port on NAT/Firewall (XP or later only): Depends on User I suggest you leave this Checked, since it doesnt hurt anything even if you dont need it. This will remove the portforwarding rules in Windows ICS and ICF for you when you exit Bitcomet. Max Connections per task: normally just leave this on Auto Setting this too high can overwhelm your connection, 50 works good for my connection but if you have a faster connection then mine try 80, or 100, or 150 If you use 150 try not to run too many torrents at once Connections to keep per task: Auto Global Max upload slots: Depends on your Global Max Upload Rate My upload cap 32 KB/s divided by 7 peers means that I can upload ~4 KB/s to each peer Try to set this so each peer gets at least 3 KB/s Global Min upload slots: Auto Max half-open TCP connections: 8 This guide explains in detail what this setting means. You should set this at 8 if you have Windows XP-SP2 or later. NAT Traversal via UDP: Auto Detect Allows two users blocked by NAT to connect to each other, it uses UDP packets to bypass the NAT. This can help boost your speed if you arent able to configure your router. Protocol Encryption: Auto Detect If you know that your ISP blocks or throttles file-sharing then you should try "Always" mode --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Enable reporting LAN IP to Tracker: Unchecked You should only enable this if you connect through a proxy server. Instead of using an IP Filter, you should use PeerGuardian 2 to block the MAFIAA :P --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you have a fast connection and some extra ram then you may want to increase the Max Disk Cache Size i have plenty of available ram so i changed the max to 120MB. You can also force Bitcomet to use a larger disc cache by increasing the Min Disk Cache Size but I dont recommend this. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Good luck and remember my settings are not the answer to everyones speed problems Speed tips... -Make sure all your hardware (routers/NICs/computers) have up to date firmware/drivers and are set up properly -Also make sure your computing environment is clean (no bad drivers, conflicting software, virus, trojans, etc) -Try to sign up or get invited to a private tracker and try to get torrents that have lots of seeds and peers -Avoid ISPs that block or throttle file-sharing (if you can) before posting anything If you have any individual questions please look through these FAQs For a good listing of torrent sites to download from go here or here If you still have a problem or question then make a new thread with a descriptive title and please include as much information as you can (ISP/speeds, hardware, software, and any other information you think will help) This is the best way to receive any help from us volunteers. Cheers :)

    New to the BitTorrent Community? [i did not show the search engine I used within this guide, so as to not confuse readers of any favoritism that BitComet staff shows towards search engines. The list of search engines below are only a few...try googling to find more! First, welcome to the BitComet Forum. Once again, we thank you for your ongoing support by using our client! [For further help with your BitComet Client, please scroll down to the end of this guide for further sites offering help. Alternatively, feel free to post at our BitComet Client Help or Torrent Questions. If you're completely new to this BitTorrent community, I would suggest you to read further below, before posting questions in Torrent Requests. :) Well, the BitTorrent network is perhaps a more efficient network than other P2P networks such as Kazaa or Shareaza. In order for you to start using BitTorrent, be sure that you have at least a 256/64kbps connection, because most files hosted on BitTorrent are minimum 50 megabytes [well that's the smallest that I've seen] to some files exceeding 10 - 20 gigabytes, thus, the better your Internet connection, the higher download speed you can get. For more information, head to any of the following 3 sections: the 1st Section below is dedicated to teaching users how to use torrents with BitComet. Section 2 is used to teach users how to use torrents, download them, etc. It is recommended that users new to the bittorrent community, should choose BitComet as one of their first clients to use. Section 3 are concluding notes for everyone to read. Section 1: www.bitcomet.com 1. Read up their F.A.Q. on how to use BitTorrent (Alternatively, please head to our BitComet Wiki Pages). 2. Download the Bitcomet client, and install it into the appropriate directory [i would advise you to install it onto a hard drive with free space exceeding 20 gigabytes, because you'll be amazed at how much you download even within one day], perhaps 100 - 200 gig drives are more suited to heavy BitTorrent users. 3. Head to your torrent search engine and search for the file you want. Its as simple as that. For a list of torrent search engines, please scroll down to the end of this guide. Try isohunt.com. 4. Download the torrent file you want, save it to a location. Open Bitcomet, and follow the instructions on Step 5. Section 2: Part A. There are of course other BitTorrent clients, though BitComet by far, is much better for downloading batched downloads...use Google if you wish. :P If you still do not understand how the torrent network works, please scroll down to the bottom of this guide, and a list of 'New to torrent' guides should be available for more information. _______________________________ Section 2: Part B A common question asked by people new to the BitTorrent community, is about the procedures used in order to download the actual file(s). In general terms, this is how it goes: - I assume that you already have installed the appropriate BitTorrent client, and have set your firewall(s) to allow the client to access the Internet. 1. Head to your favorite BitTorrent Search engine. (For a list of search engines, please scroll down to the end of this guide). 2. Type in your search query, I used Stargate Atlantis --> 3. Click on the preferred file, ALWAYS check for the number of seeders/peers. If there are less than 5-10 seeders, try avoiding such torrents, unless it is the best torrent containing the most seeders/peers in your search. 4. Once you have clicked on your preferred torrent, it should open a new window, which looks like the above screen. The Green boxed area shows the number of seeders/peers. Click on the Blue area, and it should open up a small download window as shown in the Red boxed area. Here you may either save to disk or automatically open with the preferred client. Usually I save it to a location and open it up manually with my BitTorrent client. [Please note that this is an example of one search engine. Other search engines function practically in the same way, only that they may not offer extensive information, but just the torrent download and torrent name] 5. I will guide you step by step by using the BitComet client: All you have to do is open the torrent by clicking on the Open button as indicated by the blue box on the top left hand corner, then locate the torrent file, and click open. 6. The client should automatically establish connections with the tracker servers provided by the torrent file. If your trackers report 0 peers, or having an invalid passkey, then I would suggest you to look elsewhere for that file. Unless you can register at that private BitTorrent community tracker. Section 3: A Note to all Users! Animeyume.org has prepared their own tutorial, if you’re interested - head here: AnimeYume BitTorrent Tutorial To answer some brief questions: There is no fast torrent or fast BitTorrent client. The BitTorrent community is only alive through people around the world seeding or leeching. Issues with your BitComet speed are answered in a separate topic, which I'll create soon, for now, feel free to ask within the appropriate sub-forum. However, for Router users [if you're not sure whether your modem is a router or not, head to google.com and type the model and brand name of your modem] you will need to set up a Port Forward & Static IP so as to maximize your download speeds. This is discussed in a separate topic, Click Here to view it. After the completion of ANY torrent download, it is your responsibility to do a virus scan upon the torrent's contents; you should scan torrent downloads from tracker sites that you're not familiar with, or public torrent search engine sites. Rumours of BitComet requiring CRACKS are not true! This is a free client, distributed for use to all users, as shown in the disclaimer at BitComet Wiki. _______________________________ Brief List of Torrent search Engines: www.isohunt.com www.torrentspy.com www.mininova.com www.seedler.org www.torrent-damage.com www.wtorrent.com [More at this site: http://www.p2pcore.com/torrents.php ] "Contributed by Bitdave".

Regards BitComet Team 1st June, 2006 LE: Please note that some of the procedures in this guide might be outdated (not necessary). For example, at present time, BitComet facilitates even further some operations (i.e. it intercepts the .torrent file download in most browsers and automatically opens the dialog box for adding the torrent to BitComet's task list, rendering the step of manually opening the .torrent file obsolete).
