Binding IP address

Recommended Posts

Does this really work, any drawbacks.

I have a VPN connection for torrent traffic, and have all VPN traffic directed to one IP (192.168.1.3) 

My PC has two NIC's; one set to 192.168.1.3, and the other is set to 192.168.1.9.

I have both NIC's connected to my switch.

I have set the two configurations in uTorrent:

1) net.bind_ip 192.168.1.3

2) net.outgoing.ip 192.168.1.3

I can use speedtest and it shows normal traffic on my ISP assigned IP, and when I test utorrent traffic it show the assigned IP of my VPN.

 

 

 

If I disable the NIC assigned to 192.168.1.3 the torrent traffic stops. I'm still able to access the internet on the NIC assigned to 192.168.1.9.

 Also I'm curious about doing this by assigning two IP's to the same NIC. I would set 192.168.1.9 as the primary and then direct uTorrent to bind to 192.168.1.3. Is there any concerns doing it this way?

That will not speed up utorrent if that's what you trying to do. Anything beyond utorrent software issue must be direct to those hardware/software support for more help on. You can search for IP Binding online to get more help with what your doing.

The problem is the opposite. I have a 200mps connection and going through the VPN I only get speeds of 25mps.

I have been successful in binding the IP of uTorrent to the second NIC. It looks to be separating traffic correctly.

I'd like to find others doing this to see if their are any possible problems?

As said Binding IP doesn't speed up torrent files that is based on Swarm, File Sharing that determines the speeds and other computers where the files are shared from.
