May I first point out, speed of the connection is not an issue.

Managed to upload a 6 meg file using a dial up with a 2 hour timeout, so I reckon the quicker the ip change the less traffic goes through your node, so if your lucky to start a download from a dynamic ip with no traffic through it, you get a relatively quick upload/download. Unfortunately this makes a download near impossible when connecting to a static ip, as the static nodes you are connecting to end up having a load of transfer traffic through them, therefore slowing the transfer. The dynamic ip user will change during the aforementionened transfer and so it will fail.

In addition, the network is very tech. savvy, hence the network is always being fragmented as the less dedicated users will always close the program down as it is very tedious. :shock: consequentially stopping your download. Most newer ISP`s give dynamic IP`s for new users as a security measure (also cost) so making Mute success as a p2p client more difficult.  

You gotta remember that this is not the usual way of p2p

Presume Mute would (in its current form) work effectively only in a static environment.

It does work...yes...well sort of... lets hope an automated node connection/resume and a local cache,  with more pleasing GUI will be forthcoming.

This may be bollox and am not a techy, just pleased at an upload.
