    Default Ktorrent won't seed - any suggestions?


    Another expressive thread title. ^^

    At the moment I am evaluating Ktorrent - and I've successfully loaded a
    huge ton of data. Thing is: It won't seed. It tells that it is
    seeding, but the traffic counter on Ktorrent shows the opposite:

    > Seeded: 0B


    I don't know where to fix that as I am travelling with my computer
    throughout the United States... may it be the port? I think it's
    "dynamic".

    Please give me some advice here. *Thanks.*

    There's a short how-to in the how-to's part of the forum, you might want
    to read that one on how to open the port needed by KTorrent.

    Don't think you'll find anything better, Vuze offers -far- more
    features but it also uses up like 20 times more resources.. KTorrent is
    balanced, resource friendly and comes with most features people
    want/need.

    Thanks. I'll check that out. Resources are not that important to me when
    leeching. Vuze looks great to btw. Any other great torrent prgrams you
    want to suggest?

    I know a lot of people run utorrent under wine, I am however satisfied
    with kTorrent.. and used to be pretty satisfied with Vuze.

    However it's my server handling the torrents and I want it idling as
    much as possible.. RAM usage of Vuze puts the swapfile to work more
    often and it's more CPU intensive as well.

    I've also tried Torrentflux as I pretty much like to do everything via
    a webui.. but it lacks a lot of features.

    You can find a short overview here:
    'Top 5 Torrent Clients for Linux | linuxnongeek.com'
    (http://linuxnongeek.com/2008/10/05/t...nts-for-linux/)
    (The KTorrent resource use comment on that site bull**** btw. Using only
    50MB RAM and 1% of the cpu on my server atm with 22 uploads)

    If you decide to use Vuze, I recommend taking a look at my ' bittorrent
    server howto' (http://tinyurl.com/639fcw). Just the optimization part
    though, rest is irrelevant unless you ofcourse want Vuze to act as a
    central downloadbox.

    Me again. Is it possible to continue seeding something after switching
    to another torrent client?

    Yeeeeeeehaaaaaaaa!.... whoa - what a great question to ask! ^^

    Well it's not impossible at least, I've no experience in doing so
    however.
    Guess the forums of whichever client you ended up with would be the
    place to get an answer, if it's not in the FAQ.

    program that I want to start seeding a file thats already been
    downloaded?
