EricJH Posted May 15, 2011 Share Posted May 15, 2011 (edited) I am a first time user here but not new to peer to peer clients and managing their settings to keep them from hogging the connection. One of my new housemates brought in Bitcomet and by cross referencing modem logs and her laptop's Windows logs I could find out that Bitcomet is the source of intermittent blocks of the internet connection. The modem is upset so much I cannot access the web interface of the modem either The modem is a Speedtouch 546 with software version 188.8.131.52 which is capable of managing 2046 simultaneous connections. The connection is an ADSL 2+ wide open connection with 15,3Mb/s up and 1Mb/s down. The blocks appear to be happening when the client starts and sometimes when starting a download by torrent. This has never happened before with other p2p clients. I downloaded and installed Bitcomet v1.27 on my own system and it reproduces the blocks of the connection similar to my housemate's computer. I have set Bitcomet's global upload limit to 10 kB/s and also the minimum and maximum upload rate per task to 10 kB/s. That does not make the problem go away. I went looking for a global limit of maximum simultaneous connections, which I always set to a conservative number of 50, but cannot seem to find such parameter. I would like to know what is going on and what parameters can be changed to tame Bitcomet to prevent it from intermittent overloading the modem? Edit: the traffic happening gets seen by the modem as possible intrusions. There are usually 4 IDS warnings. Let me know if you want to see the logs.
