If your in a business environment most likely you don't have access to
port forward to your client the port your client is configured to use.

If a residential environment the same as above and/or traffic shaping by
your ISP.

I'm in a business environment with no port forwarding (I may be the
network admin, but I have to live by the same rules I give users)
running Azureus Client with torrents active for both i386 and x86_64 I
was pulling 100k-200k each today. At home last night I was pulling 320k
on my residential DSL (with port forwarding) for the same two torrents.

Mileage may vary.

I do believe that something is wrong with the setup. I get torrent
connection speeds that vary wildly from 10KB/sec to about 200KB/sec. FTP
gets me about 1380KB/sec.
