    20                                 <p>You'll need to download a torrent file (extension .torrent). This is a file which contains information about the actual file you want to download (eg a movie). Once you have the torrent file, open it in Transmission.
    21                                 <p>It is good etiquette to 'seed' the file for a while (ie leave it uploading) once your download is complete. You can set a default ratio to automatically seed to in either the Transfers pane of Transmission's preferences or the action menu.
     20                                <p>You'll need to download a torrent file (extension .torrent).These are commonly found at <a href="http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=bittorrent+tracker&btnG=Google+Search">'tracker' websites</a>.

     21                                <p>It is good etiquette to 'seed' the file for a while (ie leave it uploading) once your download is complete. You can set a default ratio to automatically seed to, and then pause. This can be adjusted in Preferences >> Transfers, or in real time using the Action menu.

    2626                                <p>Make sure Transmission's <a href="portforward.html">port is forwarded</a>. If this is not done, others cannot connect to you, and thus your speed will be hampered.
    2727                               
    28                                 <p>You also need to ensure you cap your upload speed to about 60-70% of its maximum. eg if your upload connection is 256 Kilobits/sec, then you should enter 21 ((256 /8) * 0.66). This can be adjusted in the Bandwidth pane of Transmission's preferences or the action menu.
     28                                <p>You also need to ensure you cap your upload speed to about 60-70% of its maximum, so that it isn't flooded. This can be adjusted in Preferences >> Bandwidth, or in real time using the Action menu.
     29                                <br>eg. If your upload connection is 256 Kilobits/sec, then you should cap it at 21 KB/sec ((<b>256</b> / 8) * 0.66 = <b>21</b>).

    3031                                <p>Ultimately, the speed you get depends on the quality of the peers you are downloading from. If they have dial up connections, you are only going to be able to download at dial up speeds. Furthermore, if there are few seeds and many peers, more people will be fighting for the same scarce pieces and thus will slow things down. Best results are achieved when the torrent has more seeds than peers. Finally, you can only download what others are willing to send to you, and if they don't have it, they can't send it.

You can find your computer's IP address (on Mac OS X) by going to System Prefs >> Network, double-clicking on your connection (for instance, Built-in Ethernet), and clicking the TCP/IP tab. It's probably something like 192.168.1.100, or 10.0.1.2.</li>

    19                         <p>Transmission uses a single port for all the torrents you are downloading. If the port has not been opened (ie forwarded) that means only you can make connections to others in the swawm. If the port is forwarded, others can connect to you, thus increasing the potential number of people connected to you, and more importantly increasing the speed of your download.
