We have noticed that especially during peak hours it seems that TM throttles / traffic shapes FTP connections. Those on seedboxes may experience slower FTP transfer speeds that necessitates using many threads.
We have found that passing the FTP program through theVPN massively increases this speed.
Without VPN: 4.3 kB/sec
With VPN: 100 + kB/sec
This was all done on ONE thread on the same server. Something worth exploring should you be hammering your head on why FTP speeds are less than spectacular.
Several important announcements:
Payment Gateway for Malaysian Online Banking Users
Over the next few weeks we’ll be testing an online payment gateway for Malaysian customers.
This will allow hassle free online bank transfers and will eventually lead to auto generation and renewal of keys without the need to send fiddly screenshots.
We will still retain our manual processing for cash deposits and other payment methods.
For now things will stay the same and we will post a separate update on this.
We have previously kept our seedboxes quite low profile due to the technical ability required to operate them. However it seems Pit Boss has found a way to maintain the same performance benefits of rtorrent (if not making it more efficient) and implementing a web based GUI to it.
We will post screenshots and further details once this is finalized. We may also be tying up with yet another private tracker :D.
