Turn off sharing on Torrent downloader
I'd like to turn off the sharing (TX) feature of the torrent client. Does anyone know how to do that? I want to be able to download, but I don't want to become a seed or whatever its called.

I can change the Max Upload Rate and Max Number of Peers to 1, but that just slows down the upload. I want to turn the sharing off all together.

If you want to avoid sharing, pay for a Usenet account. If Popcorn Hour implemented that kind of feature in their client it would rapidly get a reputation as a leecher client and be banned from all decent trackers and blocked by other clients.

Or maybe you are just trolling?

I disagree with you 100%

I would love to straight download torrents to my PCH and not have to seed back using THAT device. This kidn of option would come in very handy when you use another computer to seed, but dont want that machine turned on at the moment. I like to use my "Server" to upload and seed torrents.

Hi!

Maybe setting upload rate to -1? Just guessing...
Ok, I tried, it didn't work Big Grin! It gave back : 4294967295 Smile.
Another guess if you have a capable router, set the pch's outgoing bandwidth to 0... still guessing...

Cheers!

RE: Turn off sharing on Torrent downloader
I have no problem setting it to 1K, or even removing the torrent when it is done, but having the option for more advanced features would be nice to me. I REALLY love the way I can set waht time I want it to download and such.
