aMule Connections Settings
« on: June 03, 2005, 04:00:51 AM »

Many people are still asking about what are the "ideal" connection settings for aMule (Preferences -> Connection).

Well, this is their thread. Let's put here our working settings and system/connection description so they can have a reference.

There we go!

aMule version: latest CVS

Computer: AMD Athlon 2600+ (1GB RAM)

Connection Type: ADSL 256/128
ISP: Telemar (velox)

Upload limit: 10 KBps
Download limit: 18 KBps

Slot allocation: 3KBps
Max Sources per file (Hard Limit): 200
Max Connections: 300
Max new connections / 5 secs: 5

Obs: These settings let me browse the internet while aMule is running. Notice that the uplink speed is important. If you put your upload limit too high, you damage your download capacity because the TCP acks will slow down.
