Need experiences with connection-settings...
« on: February 23, 2005, 01:42:12 PM »

Hi folks,
as i have a very fast DSL-connection, i really wonder why i block my internet completely?
My machine's behind a small router, where the interesting ports are directly forwarded, means, i get a high id.

So what else? Max. Connections is set to 500, max. sources to 250.

Perhaps that's the reason?

Can someone with a good dsl-bandwidth behind a router tell me, which settings will do a good job, resulting in fast eMule-download AND NOT blocking the internet, because of too much connections at a time?

Greets, qd

It would help if you would actually post your connection speed. Telepathy is sadly still out of reach for me ...

He might be using mindshielding :)

But more importent, qeldroma, is that your router can be buggy. Which means that it doesn't track tcp connection right. Also I would sugget that you check how many actuall connections amule uses:

run as root:

netstat -nap | grep -c amule

Xaignar is correct, post your download/upload speed. Most probably you are saturating you upload link, and this affects the download link because of ACKS. I have ADSL 256/128, and that gives me more or less 25KB/s down / 12 kB up. So I set aMule to 7 up. The computation is 7 + 4 (aMule bug :) ) = 11, so I still have 1 KB/s to navigate through internet ;)

Cheers!

Erm, 256/128 gives me 32/16 on my calculator...  :]

Well, one thing is the theory, another thing is practice :D

Seriously, you cannot divide by 8, you must divide by 10, there are several overheads. My maximum download speed is realistically 25 kBytes/s. Tested on the field ;)

phoenix: I've wrote an article regarding amule & network issues (finally !). How can I put it on the web ? Or wiki ? Or both ?

To add a page to the wiki, you simply take any normal page,
http://www.amule.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page
and change the name to something non-existant, say
http://www.amule.org/wiki/index.php/Stuff
and open that page. Then you simply click "Edit this page". If you want it linked from the front page, then you'll have to ask one of the admins (for instance me), since it's write-protected.
