Being an exit node for Tribler


#1

It seems Tribler is slowing down because no one is volunteering to be an exit node.
You do not have to be an exit node 100% of the time.
I volunteer twice a week for 5 to 10 hours each time.
I use a inexpensive VPN to hide my REAL IP.

If you wonder about VPNs, here is a website for more information; especially on VPNs that abide by a code of anonomity.
I use one of them.

If you want to take a real risk ( I would not) [but for cheaper VPNs]; go to stacksocial.com.
I do not know if this site is still in business but there are some VPNs that sell at deep discounts and a few of them promote P2P.

DO NOT USE servers in the USA, UK, France, Germany, Australia, Japan, China (Hong Kong is ok).

So lets SPEED UP Tribler.

Hi i have a suggestion. If i alow to use a exit node for Tribler my network is heavy loaded and become very slow.

My suggestion create a setting for the desired bandwidth that a user want to give.

That is very common with torrent programs.

Now a lot of people put it off.

I have unlimited set for both. Also, I have seeding set at unlimited.
Two months ago, I was averaging 150 KBS for downloading and 120 KBs for uploading.
The last 30 days, the average D/L is 40 KBs and average U/L is 22 KBs.
This is when I was not an exit node.
As an exit node, I had 2 speeds for D/L and U/L.

  1. Tribler D/L showed average 25 KBs but server showed average of 200 KBs for D/L.
  2. Tribler U/L showed average 15KBs but the server showed average of 130 KBs for U/L.

As an exit node, more traffic went through my server but my Tribler speeds were lowered.
Tribler speeds are shown in the lower right hand corner.

Your network becomes heavy. WOW!!!
I live in the inner city and the speeds I pay for are not the best.
I do more on my computer than just P2P.

Sure I will take you advice and cut my P2P speeds and wonder what type of speeds I will have after that.
Then take you advice again, I stop being a exit node to bring my P2P speed up.

I have DSL. I am barely guaranteed 85% of the 6 Mb/s for D/L and 85% of 1Mb/s for U/L.
