General

Trackers

  • The edit control lists all the trackers the torrent job(s) will use, and is interpreted identically to how the "Create New Torrent" dialog's "Trackers" edit control is interpreted. If a private torrent job's trackers list is modified, all existing peer connections for that torrent job will be dropped.

Bandwidth Settings

  • The Maximum upload rate field will limit the maximum rate at which BitTorrent will upload for the selected torrent job(s). Setting the value to 0 is equivalent to setting it to unlimited. Setting the value to anywhere between 1 and 3 will limit the download speed for the torrent job to 12 times the set upload speed, and you will see a "[Limited]" message in the Transfer tab. This value is interpreted in KiB/s, so please enter it as such. This limit will not override the global maximum upload rate.
  • The Maximum download rate field will limit the maximum rate at which BitTorrent will download for the selected torrent job(s). Setting the value to 0 is equivalent to setting it to unlimited. This value is interpreted in KiB/s, so please enter it as such. This limit will not override the global maximum download rate.
  • The Number of upload slots field defines the maximum number of peers that BitTorrent will upload to at any given moment for the selected torrent job(s). This value will override the default value. Leaving this blank tells BitTorrent to use the default settings.

Seeding Goal

  • Override default settings tells BitTorrent to override the default queueing settings for the selected torrent job(s).
  • The Minimum ratio field behaves identically to the respective option in the default queueing preferences, but affects only the torrent job(s) whose properties are being edited.
  • The Minimum seeding time field menu behaves identically to the respective option in the default queueing preferences, but affects only the torrent job(s) whose properties are being edited.

Other Settings

  • Initial Seeding enables a more bandwidth efficient method of seeding the torrent job(s). This should be used only if you are the sole seeder in the swarm, and if there are at least 2 peers connected. Generally, this option should not be used by people with high upload speeds.
  • Enable DHT enables announcing the torrent over DHT. This option is automatically disabled if DHT is turned off, or if the selected .torrent file has the 'private' flag set.
  • Peer Exchange enables trading of peer lists with other peers that support BitTorrent's implementation of Peer Exchange. This option is disabled if the selected .torrent file has the 'private' flag set.
  • Local Peer Discovery enables discovery of local peers via multicast. This option is disabled if the selected .torrent file has the 'private' flag set.
