What Is The Best Torrent Client?
« on: June 16, 2006, 12:12:53 PM »
I use Utorrent low on system resources kasi sha e.  (parang compared to others)  The thing is when its on kahit di naman mashado mataas ang download speed parang kinakain nya lahat ng bandwith padin.  O ganon ba talaga.  Kayo ano ba gamit nyo and feedback.

I'm using BitLord. Nice sya, easy to manage.
Think that others maybe better than you.

i'm fine with bitlord, but I use utorrent mostly.  If bandwidth is the problem just set a limit for the torrent you are downloading.
I don't have a sig.  Wouldn't know what to put even if I had one.

utorrent is the best for me, followed closely by bitcomet. Utorrent is complete, simple, and fast. Bitcomet's features for automation are excellent. Too bad many trackers ban bitcomet.

the only thing for me that's missing from utorrent is the auto-shutdown feature. =)

I'm not much into P2P (I'm not a music junkie...) but I tried uTorrent 1.5 and BitComet 0.66.

The best feature of uTorrent is its small program size and it's efficient and has a lot of features (esp. considering its size).  The disadvantage I found is that its uPnP doesn't seem to work properly with my PLDT DSL provided router -- I need to open ports manually to enable incoming connections (if port is closed, the download speed is usually very slow, unless it's using DHT to download...)

BitComet has lots of features and it's able to open ports automatically with uPnP feature with the DSL router (so I don't need to worry ports being opened all the time).

Of course, regarding the ports being open (ie. system vulnerable to attack by unscrupulous hackers), of course a solution would be to install a firewall... but for the most part I just use WinXP SP2's ICF kasi...

@thedude - you can let your computer shutdown by entering this in the "run this program when the download finishes" textbox in the torrent properties:

shutdown -s -t 30 <-f>

the delay after -t may be shortened, but i usually put 30 just in case I'm doing something else while the download finishes. If it warns me that it will shutdown in 30s, all i have to do is type shutdown -a to abort shutdown and continue my work. the -f parameter may be omitted if your running apps recognize a shutdown command properly. Chikka is a problematic app, you might need -f if you want it closed by force, otherwise, the PC will be stuck at an "end task" dialog, waiting for your input.
