Hel correcting the slow download speed

Post by nickdanger » Sat May 02, 2020 11:22 am

I'm a novice. Would someone give the steps to make the download speed as fast as it can go, please. The KiB/s speed is a nightmare. As always, thank you.

Hi nick!
Sorry for the wait, you were in moderation queue.
First you should make sure you're connectable, so if you're using a VPN, enable port forward.
Then, look for torrents with plenty of seeders, because you'll be downloading from them, the more the better. You may also get your torrents from private trackers, they're usually better seeded.
Finally, there's no magic trick: if your home connection isn't very fast, torrenting is also going to be slow.

Thank you for the reply. I am using SecureVPN. I apologize, but I do not know where to enable Port Forward nor to find Private Trackers. If you could advise I would certainly appreciate it.
