    Default Can we use Torrents in EVDO ?

    Hello Friends,

    Can some one tell me if we can use rapidshare and torrents in BSNL or any EVDO ? I heard there is some issue of public or private ip...can someone throw some light ?

    Thanks

    Default yes you can

    Theoritically you may download from both torrents & rapidshare. But the problem is that in torrents speed will be low as incoming/outgoing connections are blocked by bsnl. In rapidshare you'll see a message most of the times that 'your ip is already downloading a file' or something like that because bsnl gives shared ip on evdo. If you have premium account of rapidshare then there won't be much problem.
    Although keep one thing in mind, spped of bsnl evdo is not constant, it constantly fluctuates.

    Now EVDO has shifted to Dynamic IP. Hence no problem with Rapidshare. Further the ports are forwarded now hence getting really good speed in torrents too. Around 40 KB/S in torrent and 30 KB/s in rapidshare.This is with 2 towers signal. Getting 90 kB/s in Mediafire and direct downloads.

    Although, after getting my BSNL Broadband, I haven't really used EVDO for long time. But as jainanshal suggested, BSNL used to give shared IP address which created couple of problems.

    • First of all, free Rapidshare download restricts one download per IP. So, in a shared IP address, it might happen(almost 95% of time) that somebody sharing an IP address with you would be downloading from Rapdishare and so you won't be allowed to download. This won't be the case if you have Premium account.
    • Secondly, while using torrents, having shared IP address also meant that you would be behind NAT and hence, you will have problem of incoming connections. That doesn't mean you can't have good download speed. I once downloaded a movie at ~121 KBPS(yes...it's Bytes) even though my incoming port was blocked. All in all, your total download speed would depend on torrents' Seed2Peer ratio i.e. number of seeders compared to number of peers/leechers. If the number of seeders is high, you should get really good speeds.


    Should you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.
