F2F Slow

Postby Dreaser » Tue Oct 08, 2013 1:54 pm

Just wondering if the anonymous F2F Tunnels are restricted to 1KB/s. all mine seem to hover around this speed, direct connections to friends get the expected speeds. but all f2f tunnels are throttled to 1KB. I can't seem to find a setting to increase this.
Is this normal or have i missed something

Hi Dreaser

No, anonymous transfers are not limited to 1 kB/s. However there was a bug fixed recently that could cause tunnel speeds to stay low if the connection status of your friends doesn’t change:
r6739 | csoler | 2013-09-15 20:27:52 +0200 (Sun, 15 Sep 2013) | 2 lines

added missing setPeerState that caused tunnels to get stuck to default minimum rate unless the list of connected peers change

That was after 0.5.5a so the fix is not yet included in an official release. In practice this bug didn’t seem to be really problematic but maybe the connection to your friends is really stable and this is what you’re noticing. Or maybe there just isn’t a fast route to the sources for the files you’re downloading.
