I just started using ABC yesterday. It's the best BT Client I've used thus far (though I've only ever used Shadow's Expiremental, which is banned on most trackers, and the original client, which has no options what-so-ever.
DMZ or port forward ports 44000 - 45000.
Set the ABC client to use those ports.
Maximum uploads should be (Max upload bandwidth / 8).
Why would the trackers do that? What does it matter to them which client you use?
I thought by default bt client uses normally in the high 6000's like 6999
It may be. BitTorrent is HELL on network devices.. It hammers TCP/IP traffic like the fist of an angry god; in so doing, it can crash PCs with shoddy network cards and reboot bad routers.
for some reason the problem cleared up and i am currently using utorrent...so i give umy thumbs up to utorrent...i also did spyware scans with spybot search and destroy...and i am getting better speeds with this than with ABC..i also turned off windows firewall cuz i have mcaffe installed..perhaps that hindered bittorrent a bit
-too bad i already purchased a linksys speedbooster wireless card...ohwell...maybe ill get better speeds
