Trying to download a torrent with more than 800 peers. However, I'm only able to connect to 20, thus d/l rate is below 5kb/s. I've limited my u/l speed to 20kb/s. Any idea how to boost up the d/l rate? I'm on a 1.5M DSL connection, windows XP professional, connected to a router and using Bicomet .68. I read a lot of threads in the forum. Will connecting using a proxy help? What are the differences among different type (HTTP1.1, sock 4, sock 5, etc) of proxies? I have in hand a list of public proxies.
