    For example, the download and upload limits are set to 0 by default, which means that they are not limited.
    For example, to speed up the download, we should limit the upload rate. When the download finishes, we may need to "seed" files. That means that we have to increase the speed of the upload at that time. To do this, we need to set the maximum upload rate first. It is set in kilobytes per second.

    For the program to increase the speed of upload when the download finishes, we need to check "Alternate upload rate when not downloading (kB/s):".
    We keep it at 0, which means that there will be no limit. We can do the same thing to the download rate. The speed of the download will be determined by the seeders and the speed of their upload rate.

    We can keep "Maximum download rate (kB/s):" at 0 if we want to keep the maximum download speed unlimited, or we can set any kind of limits by clicking the input box to the right of "Maximum download rate (kB/s):".
