  1. I am on a campus network, and I am trying to run a torrent downloader. My speeds are super slow, and I had heard something about port forwarding possibly fixing this, but (to be honest), I hate networking. However, I had also heard that some kind of filter had been put on to restrict torrent downloads (as well as online games, grrrrr). If anyone knows a way to set something like that up or has any other suggestions to get this resolved, I would greatly appreciate it.

    If at the moment it is working, then nothing you can do can change the speed of your download.

    The restrictions are put in place by the campus IT dept, take your complaint up with them, although they will likely tell you tough luck.

    Regards
