Does anybody know what steps can be taken to optimize the torrent DL speeds? This is also weird - when my fiend goes to check the tracker on the website, it says there are 800 seeders and 27,000 leechers, yet my friend is only connected to 2 seeders and 55 leechers. He is getting a pathetic rate of 20 Kbs. Any suggestions?

He probably needs to open some ports. Make sure 6881-6889 are open.

Also, use Azureus. By far the best BT client.

This has been piracy corner with GoChiefs.

torrents are slow in the early stages, also your upload is proportional to your download. 20k may be slow but eventually the download will finish (mine did overnight) GTA:SA looks good :)
