    Just turn off the firewall and get norton personal firewall for free by bitorrent norton personal firewall doesnt block ports sothere should be no problems!

    Hey ugiim, I might get bittornado and take your advice. When you say 20 max 4 uploads, do you mean I have to make 4 uploads, or what. I know I really should see what you mean, but I don't, so help will be much appreciated. Also my connection is 1mb DSL, will that make a difference in max dl spd? If possible, can you tell me roughly what my max dl speed would be if I used your settings.

    Wait the 20max 4 upload is what you have to set BitTornado to isn't it?
    Also my comp has a potential 2400mhz amd xp(I need to change the clock spd just cdnt be annoyed) 512mb ddr, with xp sp2 and 1mb dsl. That shd be enuf to handle the program as the original bt client major slows my comp down.
