flexy123 Posted August 15, 2006 Share Posted August 15, 2006 i might be totally off now...but give me an idea what this shouldn't work. Well let's say my max connections/task is set to 200...but the peers for a specific torrent are...hmm...1000. So...i connect to a 200 peers...but 150 of them are either not sending AT ALL or just too slow. My question: IS it feasable to have a feature which scans the list of peers/seeds...and auto-bans/kicks peers which are "too slow"...to make room to connect to other peers who might be faster ? So...that basically the client looks for the fastest peers autimatically ? It's just that i am always wondering why i have so many peers which i am connected to..but only a few sending data....in my case it's usually that 80% of my peers dont seem to send any data..so why should i need them ??? (Or would my idea totally break the bittorrent concept ? Is it even doable ? SECOND: second idea (sorry for making another post): The status screen is still unclear for me..especially when it comes to NAT traversal. "Diconnected1" doesn't say too much....i'd like to have more detailed/clearer information, especially so people know whether their NAT traversal actually works. ANd/OR if peers cannot connect because of NAT...it should be clear to see somewhere.... The problem is that a number of NATS obviously dont allow NAT traversal...and at this point i dont even know whether mine works. There are indications it works (green light, connected peers)...then there are still MANY peers where it says "disconnectedX"....and...then the speeds are the same like when using XXXX-torrent.....where i know the XXXX-torrent client doesnt do NAT traversal.....so i would expect BC getting higher speeds but it doesn't. Btw. this is not a feature for some unlucky ones behind NAT (like me)...but according to some recent research allegedly up to 60% of all internet users are behind NAT ! Therefore i think it's important smile.gif Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
