Precisely - I just downloaded the latest update and things feel even snappier now (even though it's probably just all in my head... )ghostee said:I agree. Nice interface, speedy, and there are addons to do whatever you need (ie: RSS).
Really? I found that to be the case with the original BT client, but not being a resource hog is one of the main reasons I initially switched to Azureus. I've had my client running for weeks at a time sometimes, no restarts, and my system performance has been fine... odd...Soulstorm said:Azureus all the way. It's a resource hog though. After some hours of use, I must restart my Mac.
Yes, as you say, for something lighter and more simplistic, it probably does the trick quite nicely. I need a more feature-rich, powerful client however, hence why I use Azureus. But yes, everyone's needs are different, which is why so may different clients exist!thequicksilver said:As do I. If you want a light, basic, easy to use app, forget Azureus, forget the official client, and forget Tomato, get this.
Yeah, most torrent programs the ability to set up what port they communicate through. You'll have to tell your OS X firewall and router's firewall what port that is too.allan_zip said:In Azureus under Preferences > Connection you can list your incoming port.
If you have a firewall up you need to go into OSX System Preferences > Sharing > Firewall and allocate those ports to bittorrent. If you have a router it's a bit more awkward and needs configured, try here for help
It's all a lot easier if you have no firewall and no router but that's not an option for a lot of people.
I can't think why one application would result in faster downloads than another. A well seeded torrent and your max download rate will usually be the only things to determine speeds.
