    I think this is Better:

    Torrent Client - Preferences - Bandwidth - Number of connections - Set aprox. 500 for each
    Torrent Client - Preferences - BiTorrent - Protocol Encryption - Forced
    Bandwidth Allocation - High (Set download/upload limit - Unlimited)
    Stop Other Active Torrents - Start downloading and wait for connections.

    The scheduler stuff is actually pretty helpful with seeding.
    If you got file that you want to seed you can set it up so that U-torrent will open when you turn on your computer. then using this scheduler you can make it seed a different file each day. That way the seed faster then if they're all going at once. ;)

    Actually no you shouldn't. If you look closely, it says 0 = unlimited.
    If you set it to 1, you are limiting it to one kb/s (at most).
    If you set it to 0, you may achieve a lot more than 1.
