  1. I left it running overnight and didn't change any settings, it seems to be working fine now. It just doesn't make any sense because the torrents I were trying to download had over 100 seeders, and 1.8.4 started downloading right away. Any torrent that I open starts up right away now, I guess it was just a lemon at first. A bug that's not reproducible is not a bug at all.
  2. I'll try that and report back, I just don't understand because uTP were running fine on Build 16666 for me.
  3. Something is not right about this latest build. I have been running 2.0 build 16666 with no problems. I just upgraded to build 16850 on TWO separate machines. I did not change any settings or anything, just updated it. Now my torrents don't download. They just sit there saying downloading and don't do anything. They show me the seeders and leechers but it just doesn't go or if it does, it goes very very slowly. I checked the transfer cap and all that stuff, and I can't figure out what's wrong, other than the clear assumption that something is wrong with this build. I just downgraded to 1.8.4 stable and it's working fine now. All of my torrents that were "downloading" just magically started up almost instantly back up to 3.0 MB/sec. Although I wish I could have a version of 2.0 because I really liked UDP torrenting. Running Windows 7 RTM (6.1 Build 7600) 64-bit on both machines. I'll be glad to help out if someone wants to know more about the issue if you want to help me pinpoint the problem, just PM/AIM.
  4. UDP is an unthrottled, connection-less protocol. Usually UDP is used for streaming video or audio, high bandwidth applications where when bits are lost people would not notice. Essentially your computer just spits out data and "hopes" that it reaches it's destination. Because Torrenting/uTorrent in nature automatically ensure that all data is received, using UDP is not a problem. UDP will make better use of bandwidth because handshaking does not occur, thus less overhead. Also, in TCP it is possible that clients can tell other clients to "slow down" if they are outputting too much data for the network. Thus why TCP is said to be throttled. In UDP there is no throttling, all clients can output as much as data as they want, as fast as they want, into the network.
