    Torrent ratios and private trackers

    I generally use two private trackers IPTorrents and TheBox.bz for downloading movies and TV programs with uTorrent. However I'm having a helluva job keeping my ratios above 1. Currently I have three downloads going one each from IPTorrents and THeBox.bz and one from a public tracker ThePirateBay.com

    I note that despite having links to a similar number of peers the ratio on the movie from the public tracker is 0.3 while on the private trackers it's still 0.0.

    Are private trackers throttling uploading or is it a utorrent setting problem ?

    FunFile | Login only requires that you seed every file you download for at least 72 hrs. I usually only carry a 0.6 ratio there and never have a problem.

    I can't see why they would throttle uploading, however some ISP's do that with torrents. Might be your utorrent settings.

    TOT - The download rate is fine, upload not too good.

    They only offer 512 kbps upload speeds.

    Try my funfile link, they don't care much about ratios, only that you make the attempt to seed.
