Find a server with the lowest load on it
(represented by the coloured bar), and click on it to run the test.
Click on several more servers until you find out
which one gives you the highest UPLOAD speed results
Once you find your highest upload you will have to do a
little math. The speed results that you get will be in kilobits per
second (kib/sec), but for eMule, you want to know your maximum upload
speed in kilobytes per second (kb/sec). To do this is very simple. You
simply take the speed in kib/sec and divide by 8 to get kb/sec.
From the picture (make all the settings exactly the same
as you see in the red squares' areas to make this step really fast):
#1: Make sure there is no checkmark here.
#2: The upload speed you got from STEP 4 (above) will be needed here.
Give eMule 50-75% of your maximum upload speed (in kb/sec).
#3: Put a checkmark here.
#4: Click the "Apply" bottom, and then click the "Test Ports" button. If
the test gives you bad results (shows something in
RED letters, e-mail me for help.)
#5: Put the number 300 here.
#6: Put the number 600 here.
#7: Put a checkmark in both boxes.
#8: Put a checkmark in both boxes.

it again. In the picture you should see the globe with 2 green arrows.
