cottage Posted November 5, 2006 Share Posted November 5, 2006 Hi all, I relatively new to BitComet and torrents. However, I've done a lot of reading and I'm quite familiar with computers. Among others, I've read the following guides and all the pages to which they link. http://forums.bitcomet.com/index.php?showtopic=410 http://forums.bitcomet.com/index.php?showtopic=533 Can anyone help me with a curiosity question? The guides recommend establishing a static IP address for every computer on the network (when using a router) and port forwarding the listening port. My question..... If the above is not done, an IP address is automatically assigned each time the computer boots and BitComet seems to find and have access to the listening port. How does a static IP address and port forwarding speed up the BitComet download and upload? Sorry - I know that this is a real geeky question but I like to understand what I'm doing and why I'm doing it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
