problem: nothing is really dl'ing or ul'ing. everything went down the sh!tter...

i've just hit a wall of ceased function. i recently changed my "maxhalfopen" tcp option from like 8 to 60. now at 20... torrents may pick some speed up for a few minutes, but they die shortly after. nothing above 10kbps

disabled my firewall which yielded no results. might try forwarding my port?

Open your bittorrent program. Then scan ports 6881 to 6889, thats what bittorrent uses.

Don't change your maxhalfopen value, or any of the advanced options for that matter. Set your incoming port selection to 11256. Also check that your Global Bandwidth Limiting is set to 0 (zero) on the download side. Are you sure the torrents you are testing on have enough seeders to go faster? While you are downloading a torrent, right click on it and click "Update Tracker" a few times. Use this for your tests to be sure:
