View Full Version : Using Nullsofts Waste

14-06-2003, 01:02 AM
Ive just been looking at my total bandwidth (for no good reason really) & I Noticed that while downloading from Waste I am regularly getting 50% above my theoretical peak throughput for extended periods of time, & even stranger I am UPLOADING at peak throughput at the same time!

Im on a 256kb Connection so I should be limited to 32kb roughly.

All I can think of (& this is weak in my opinion) is that the port that Waste runs off isnt throttled like the P2P & IRC ports generally are... Or not monitored the same way?

Although that doesnt explain why im basically getting twice what I should out of my ISP...

Any Ideas?

It's not too bad. Haven't mucked around with transferring files really, just did a small text file and left it at that. I wouldn't think that the ISP would be limiting port 1337 as of yet.
