I plan to stop using webdav for listing available files at some little bittorrent seedbox, and "share" all my downloads through a global
all_my_downloads.torrent file (DHT disabled); this way I can transparently use remote NAS on a seedbox instead of chaosing up my netbook's ssd with many Gb's of junk including "only recent music downloads"
Problem is, that a speed of a single connection is limited by either by ISP, or by a ssh tunnel uncertain limits about one connection speed in a -D tunnel (hello, friendly ISP who makes me use corkscrew and ssh to avoid buggy http proxy).
When files are at Webdav (basically HTTP) server, it is easy to download them in 5-6 streams to utilize all bandwidth; just use
aria2c instead of wget. When a normal torrent is used, multiple peers are giving multiple connections (somehow easier for ssh to keep in single tunnel) - so no lose in speed. (however, I plan to get rid of ssh completely by seeding from proxy-allowed ports like 80/443/5190).
But the single connection speed, now, may get limited by a proxy.
What is the # of file pieces that one client may download from other client at a same time from a same serving port? Multiple connections are wished.. will be checked.
