I'm running Vuze torrent client on Linux Mint and am looking for a way to block upload completely.
Obsolete: Please take it as a fact, that I am unwilling to use some other bittorent client.
Vuze is only able to limit the upload to 5 Kbps, which is not 0!
Another thing I would like to have, as I upload large amounts of legal Linux ISO torrents, is a way to easily switch between Enable upload and Disable upload modes.
I can't seem to find any suitable plugin for Vuze. Something of this sort exists. It is named Auto Stopper. But it stops the upload after a certain ratio, it cannot be adjusted under 1.0.
Rationale: I contribute to the network by uploading Linux ISOs. But movies uploads are prohibited in my country. And I won't risk prosecution. So:
- I cannot upload movies (but can download them legally)
- I contribute in other ways (uploading many Linux ISOs)
Is there a good way to achieve my goal?
I am aware the network needs seeders for the torrent network to function. This question is dated 2015. Many things changed, including the way I function in networking and systems.
I don't use Vuze anymore.
I use Transmission (daemon on a headless server, GUI client on my personal machine).
I use a VPN on my machine.
I no longer download movies, I buy Blu-Rays instead.
