How to Increase Seeds and Peers in torrentz [UPDATED]

  • Limit your upload rate
A peer to peer network is sharing alike on the same or similar platform and therefore you should be able to set your client's upload speed rate to a maximum amount, which will usually be about 80 percent of your maximum upload speed that is being offered by your ISP. Keep this speed, as high as possible, but you have to play your cards well as the upload speed affects your download speed as well.
Note: Mind the speed units it may be given in kilobits per second (kb/sec) or kilobytes per second (kB/sec).
1 kilobyte = 8 kilobit

  • Experiment with Protocol Encryption
Some ISPs love to act like Big Brothers and constrict bandwidth for P2P protocols. Protocol Encryption in most of the torrent clients helps to override this bandwidth shaping. Enable outgoing protocol encryption and put a checkmark on Allow Incoming Legacy Connections.

With protocol encryption, ISPs find it difficult if not impossible to detect that the traffic is coming from BitTorrent. Experiment with enabled, disabled and forced options because you could be getting better speeds with encryption disabled. Non-encryption makes a torrent connection compatible with someone who is not using encryption but as a minus it makes the torrent detectable to an ISP with a bandwidth restricting policy.


  1. Hey Hello
    I am just trying to upload some of my mp3 stuff via torrent like my favourite songs collection just for a backup. I've made its torrent and upload it on 5-6 different torrent sites and now currently uploading it via u torrent client. As u say in ur previous post i also added all d trackers in it but it still shows 0 seeds and 0 peers with a pretty bad health too. Also i want to know if there is a mechanism for just to stop upload not download cause my upload speed is keep distributing in my all downloading file and affecting the file i want to upload.
    Also i have some stuff which is not currently available on torrent as i searched a lot and after that i am writing it to u. So how can i make that stuff available to people cause every-time i upload the above problems caught me.
    Help Me :)

  2. your previous post works.i pasted the tracker's and it worked.thanks {D}. frm john potter

  3. Hello the first tracker list did little to nothing to increase my download speed, I was wondering if you could email me the list you sent to people in the last post that seemed to fix their problems, thanks in advance!!
