Huh! It is much easier when one makes proper visualisation
of the protocols involved into the task. Peer2peer is not the
devil, but the way to do things. I cannot imagine downloading
debian dvd in one act. What if the line drops?
Seriously, original poster failed to show details. Lenny is
rock stable and there is no way to freeze it other than clogging
i/o. For downloading torrents, isp makes bandwidth rules. Also
for uploading. On some spots on mother earth it is not ligit
to run server aside ones paid to the same isp. Since the port on
which torrent app communicates lives in high range, I doubt
it is the problem. My conclusion would be: some time has to
be spent to learn ins and outs of debian first. Next, to learn
how torrent works, including reading rfc or whatever similar.
