    Azureus Settings and Download Speed

    New to Linux. 4 to 6 months. Having some trouble with Azureus. Downloads start, but then they turn brown and 0 Kb/s. I have the three lights with a healthy green, no NAT or DB problems at all. I'll give as much information as possible. I live in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Have a 640K connection. Let me know if I have to give more information. What I need is someone to tell me if my settings for Azureus are ok. And if my router port forwarding and configuration is ok.

    Hardware and OS:

    AMD Turion 64 MK36 (in a notebook)
    1,5G of RAM
    OS: Ubuntu 7.04 64bit
    Edimax Wireless Super-G ADSL Modem Router
    Java: 5.0, not up to date there cause I need to run Firefox 32 bit with Flash plugins, so I needed the 32 bit edition. Hence I don't have the latest Firefox.
    Connection: 640K ADSL Connection Wireless
    Modem Router: Edimax Modem Router Wireless Super-G ADSL2+ Modem Router


    My Router Configuration:

    NAT Setting Enabled
    Virtual Server with Port 58349 UDP and TCP Portforwarded

    yes azureus can be painful to get going
    you mention that you live in Argentina have you checked this page to see

    Bad ISPs - AzureusWiki

    whether your ISP is the one blocking your connection? due to increased dsl traffic, ISP's are taking dramatic measures they like to call 'traffic shaping' but in reality they are simply blocking the whole thing. if you ISP is blacklisted, be sure to enable RC4 encryption and retry downlading. keep us updated here we ll try to help whenever we can

    Hi Dre4mer, thanks for replying, I was quite surprised cause I posted several weeks ago, still thanks for doing so. Though I have to tell you I'm using utorrent via wine, its just much more simple to configure, almost a one step thing. And everyone here in Argentina has problems with Azureus, I've checked in the past the blacklisted ISPs, mine used to be one of them years ago, but my ISP nowadays is a good one, it doesn't reduce or block port or connection band. Still I had problems to make Azureus work, so I turned to Utorrent, I don't like it cause I don't like to depend on .exe applications, still, it looks like the best thing at the moment.

    So anyway, thanks for replying, and well that's it, good luck to you Dre4mer and thanks again!
