well basically, when you are downloading the .torrent with your
bittorrent client, it grabs the files in bits from as many 'seeds' as
possible (port 6881:6889).  If you open up port 6881:6889 on your
firewall while downloading multiple 'peers' will connect to it.  When I
have done this (opend the ports on my firewall) it almost tripled my d/l
speeds (upload speeds also jumped).

> So, it looks life, if you catch persons looking for the
.torrent file, you can see from the actual file he/she downloaded what
he/she planning to do.
