Well, strange things sometimes happen. I had to forward only the TCP ports range in the router.
When forwarde TCP+UDP or only UDP, then the speeds were very low, rather 0,0 kB/s.
Now I run fast with lots of seeds.

Port mappings

Please refer to the FAQ about network ports and port fowarding
What Network Ports Synology Products Use?
What is port forwarding?

Hi Franklin,

I'm a bit confused. The FAQ say's that you have to use ports 6890 ~ 6999 for the Download Station (TCP/UDP)
(The FAQ doesn't mention BitTorrent, only Download Station)
So which ports do we have to use?

Greetings Martin.

Martin-

Sorry for the confusion, it should say BitTorrent Range. The FAQ will be updated to reflect that.

I think the confusion is the default range in the diskstation interface is 6881-6890 but in the FAQ it says 6890-6899. Which is the correct range to use?

I think that the 6881-6890 range is correct. Download Station can handle up to 10 simultaneous downloads. So one port to one download.

Please be advised of the following..

Hi guys, newbie here and I thought I'd throw my two-cents in as well:

I have tried forwarding both port ranges (individually and combined) and have tried TCP/UDP/BOTH as well, but my speeds are still below 10KB/s for torrents. Standard ftp/http downloads are fine, and the torrent d/l rates seem capped regardless of whether I have 5 seeds or 55 (trust me, I've had both and plenty inbetween).

Any ideas other than the ones I've tried? If it matters, I'm using a Linksys WRT54GS.

When I checked my incoming log I found a LOT of IP addresses looking for port 50052, which is the old Azureus port number I used for my PC before I uninstalled it to use DR instead.

Is it possible that torrents are trying to come to the wrong port because of something underlying in XP? I know that's probably just bullplop, but I don't know enough about how torrents work. Is it possible the torrent site I used knows that I have torrents sent to 50052? Some IPs are coming to 6890, but I have 140 seeds in the torrents I am currently d/ling and there are a lot of IPs looking for 50052.

From the information you've stated, I would try to forward port 50052 to the Synology server's 6xxx port to see if that results in a performance boost.

I think "their" clients are locally saving information about other clients IP/ports for faster reconnect if they lose network connection - and possibly to be able to bypass tracker ratio checks...

It's still not possible to seed a torrent after the download finishes. So sooner or later the 'torrent-provider' will cut down the speed for you to download because you never share at least 1:1. This issue is mentioned several times on this forum. The firmware that solves this issue will be very welcome!

New Torrent Program?

Postby kungfujonny » Mon Aug 06, 2007 4:40 am

I just wanted to first say thanks for everyone who made the suggestions for port forwarding, they helped me greatly for speed performance on both torrents and http downloads.

I have a totally different question, has anyone ever tried installing a PHP and MYSQL based torrent program to run on the Synology Station?

I have found these three have have yet to try out:
http:// sourceforge. net /projects/torrentflux/
http:// sourceforge. net/projects/torrentvolve/
http:// sourceforge. net/projects/torrenttracker/

I don't know first hand if any of these programs can allow you to seed, but this has gotten me curious on performance/customization.

0.00 KB/s speed

Postby begica » Wed Aug 08, 2007 9:36 pm

Hi all,
I just bought a 107e and was trying to get the Download station to work. I have set up the port forwarding on my SMC7908VoWBRB to the default port range but can't get anything but 0,00 KB/s.
Did many experiments after that with other ports number with the same result.
I get speed up to 100kB/s with Azureus.

I'll be very glad if anyone can help me with it.

Thank you
begica
