Hey, anybody use any RELIABLE and DECENT BitTorrent software, if you do please post.
I actually use acquisition for my torrents. I just downloaded a video (legal video) at over 1MB/second. I took a screenshot because I was so amazed at the speeds I'm getting:
Downloaded 800megs in about 13 minutes.
I'm not sure if it has anything to do with generous seeders or the fact that I am using acquisition, but I like it.
Oh right i didnt know you could use Acquistion for Torrents - I will just use that then, maybe your connection is awesome - Whats your connection?
I actually have a 6meg down, and usually my max download is at around 600kb/sec. I have no idea why it was going so much faster.
holy **** dude, you're right. i knew BT was built into the new acquisition but I hadn't tried it. Ahh..bit torrent with the simplicity of Acquisition - perfect
i download acquisition, trial version, and it seems like the BT part isn't working for me...or at least its not going fast at all...do i have to open up any ports on my hub?
I go back and forth between the standard bittorrent client and acquisition.
BTW, I just registered my copy of acquisition...i get a lot better speeds now with regular p2p stuff (haven't tried torrents yet) and and no more stupid dock bouncing nonsense every 15 minutes.
You always do if you are behind a router.
I use azureus it great.
Yeah, I have 2 meg broadband, ports closed ~10-20kb/s Max, ports open ~210kb/s Max.
Me too, I have been using BitTorrent before but it seemed to stop responding after a while. I heard some good stuff about µTorrent but it is not Mac compatible yet.
I don't do much bittorent, but I started using this program which, so far, I like.
Simple, fast, and best of all: free.
Except that when you quit it... it's still running.
What do you mean?
Have Azureus running, then quit it... now look in Activity Monitor
Update to the latest version.
With that you mean they are working on a Mac version, right?
Full blown BitTorrent client in ~115KB, that will be great...!
messed....well i am not using Azureus anymore....
I highly recommend using Transmission Simple, Fast, minimal, and less then 2% CPU used!
Dumb question how do you open ports and what ports do you open. The BitTorrent thing with Acquisition is so slow I must have not the right ports open or something.
I got 2MB per sec. at my school once. Thats really fast!
I think it's funny how the most often downloaded item with LimeWire is...
I used to use Tomato Torrent and thought it was great... until I tried Transmission. Transmission is the only bittorrent app I use now.
Just downloaded Transmission and it's working very well so far in comparison to BT and Azureus. Seems to find more seeds and very good speeds.
transmission for me. does what's it's supposed to do very well. low resource and cpu usage, and very stable and interface is very good,
you double click on a .torrent file and you can chose it to always automatically download to a folder, or always ask. handy feature it has,
now using 0.4 with it's dock and app icon changed to official bittorrent.
