In bittorrent (Advanced), people were saying you need to open your 6881-6889 ports to get the r which i dont know what is for.

Question

err... Remote and local "what", exactly? Where are you seeing it say this "r" and "l"?

Edit: Generally speaking, "Remote" means "any other computer" and "Local" means "this computer" or "your computer". To be referred to in that context the computers have to be linked in some way -- in this case most probably via the Internet. Although its hard to say exactly what it means without knowing what you are looking at,

In this context, remote means they connected to you, local means you connected to them. If you're behind a firewall/NAT device you can only get local connections unless you open the appropriate ports. (If 2 people are both behind firewalls, then they can't talk at all.)

The fewer connections, the lower the available bandwith that you see, and therefore the lower the speed.
