I have both windows and fedora 12 and have noticed i get much faster downloads with windows.Is there a bit torrent client that works extremely well with fedora? I have transmission and it is very slow.I have tested with the same exact files and windows is so much faster.

The client choice may not totally account for BitTorrent's sluggishness. You might have forgotten opening some ports on the firewall.

And yes, transmission is mostly cr@p. I personally use deluge.

I second Deluge.... I have used Deluge for awhile and have recently been trying out qBittorrent and like it. Deluge allows more connections though i have noticed.

rtorrent. Text based, uses very few resources.

Good article on setup on the Archlinux wiki.

Since you mentioned rtorrent, let me recommend something similar: aria2. Most useful when downloading the same source from BitTorrent and HTTP/FTP (via metalink) simultaneously, e.g. downloading Linux distros.

Well, I'm not that torrent guy (still on Muli :D). But overall I'm happy with transmission. What's the problem with this program?

For the slow speed, I think a bit tweak in firewall will be helpful.

I recommend Azures. It provides MORE tweak options than other clients in GUI.
The one repo works pretty well with OpenJDK and Gtk-Java.

I used to use Azures but it took to much system resources to run.

I agree, the one from Vuze usually consumed significant system resource and loaded slowly.

But the one in Fedora repo consumed much less and loaded extremely fast.

I'll have to try it again sometime.
