GMP-ECM will try n curves with the "-c n" command line option, however it will stop if it finds a factor and the cofactor is prime. With the "-one" option added, it will stop when it finds a factor, even if the cofactor is composite.

How to choose parameters depends on what factor size you are aiming for. Did you read the README file?

Btw, version 6.0.1 is a bit outdated. The current version is 6.1.2.
