Not getting required speed from torrenting on Ubuntu

0  2018-02-07 by Lamecat443

Me and my friend are trying to watch a film together. He is using Zona on Windows and seems to be getting a solid 400kb/s (his max internet bandwidth) and I'm using Ubuntu with Deluge and I'm only getting 10kb/s. The magnet is exactly the same. I'm only getting 1 seeder whilst he's getting a lot more. This happens all the time for some reason, even when switching torrent clients to Transmission. Can someone explain please? Is torrenting in Ubuntu just shit?


I use Deluge with Ubuntu 17.10 and have no issues. Maybe try a different torrent client?

Do you have DHT and PEX enabled?

Does your Router allow UPNP and Port-Forwading?
