Best settings for Transmission while using Private Internet Access or PIA

Post by IcarusTwo » Thu May 25, 2017 1:15 am

I'm on Mac OS Sierra (10.12.5) and I'm using the latest build of Transmission (v2.92). My ISP speed is 200mb down. What settings does everyone here recommend for fastest speeds - I usually connect to the port servers (Toronto, Netherlands etc) and open the port in Transmission before downloading. Currently my settings are :

Bandwidth --
Enable Micro Transport Protocol (uTP): Off
Randomize Port at Launch: Off
Automatically map Port: Off

Peers --
Global max connections : 500
Max connections for new transfers: 110
Use PEX for public torrents: On
Use DHT for public torrents: On
Use local peer discovery for public torrents: On
Prefer encrypted peers: On
Ignore unencrypted peers: Off

Does that sounds good? My speed range is 120kb/s - 3.5mb/s and it seems to fluctuate like crazy between those numbers.
Any advice will be helpful!
