uTorrent doesn't ban local IPs unless you specifically add them to ipfilter. It only bans its own specific IP addresses to prevent loobpack connections.

If you have local peer discovery enabled AND the torrents aren't private flagged the torrents will get local connections through local peer discovery.

If you have "Limit Local Peer Bandwidth" disabled in Preferences - BitTorrent, they will synchronize as fast as the complete configuration (storage drives, internal connection, etc) permits.

That torrent is #69 on the download list of the one PC.  With that many active torrents, there will be a considerable amount of torrent protocol activity that's necessary to negotiate pieces to download.  It could be that your available data bandwidth is being reduced by the bandwidth used for sending torrent protocol packets.  More significant might be the low upload rate for that torrent.  I've found that seeds and other peers give priority to peers that are uploading.  If your rate of upload is low, they'll treat you as a leach and upload slowly to you.  When my upload rate is high for a torrent, my download rate for that torrent goes up.  The torrent starts slow because I don't have much to upload, but then increases as the amount of data that I have increases.


That might be happening to you even between your own machines on your own local LAN.


Of course, this is just observed behavior on my part.  I don't actually know what it's doing.  If I'm in a hurry for a particular torrent though, I seem to have good results from pausing/stopping as many other torrents as I can.  Once your two machines are caught up, you can resume all that other activity.
