    44                                 <h1>What is PEX? </h1>
    45                         </div>
    46                                 <p>PEX (Peer Exchange) is a method of discovering new peers via other peers, rather than the tracker. It allows Transmission to attach to the swarm much quicker.
    47                                 PEX is automatically disabled for privately tracked torrents. The feature is compatible with both Azureus and µTorrent peers.

    50                                 <h1>What is encryption? </h1>
    51                         </div>
    52                                 <p>Transmission encrypts the connections it makes with other peers when necessary, using the RC4 cipher. The implementation is compatible with other clients such as Azureus and µTorrent. It is always enabled, however you have two options: accepting connections from anyone, regardless of encryption; or only accepting encrypted connections. Note that the latter option may make you unconnectable in some swarms. The encryption feature does not mean your session is secure or anonymous, it is merely a way to avoid the traffic shaping measures some ISPs have implemented.

    56                         </div>
    57                                 <p>This is a constraint imposed on Transmission, as more than this number is unnecessary. A global limit is set at 200 peers.

    46                         <p>You haven't port forwarded correctly. Port forwarding opens a port in your firewall or router so that incoming connections from the outside world can be made with Transmission.
    47                         If the port is forwarded, other people in the torrent can see you, thus increasing your potential number of connections, which more importantly, may increase the speed of your download.
