Firon

µTorrent 1.7 beta 2951

Recommended Posts

@ Lucifer - thanks for the feed... we discovered a couple cases we did not handle properly, and updated the code accordingly.

@ rafi - I think auto-adding trackers may be undesirable for some, as I have heard there are quirks when doing that with private ratio sites. If anything, it should be an option.

ill try that now

that is exactly the situation, I run 'something else' (http server) on the same port from time to time, and utorrent goes nuts when it cant allocate specific listen port, nuts = ignores options

EXACTLY, it sure feels good at least one person understands that :)

choosing random port is not a crime in itself, but saving that random port (even if its firewalled and utorrrent didn't saw a single packet on it) as a new default listen port is just weird, and definitely a bug.

And thats exactly what utorrent does for me kokoaroko.

I set utorrent to run on a port taken by another program, it maps the port and gives me a red light with the message listen error. If i leave utorrent on that port, close it, reopen it, it maps that same port again, giving me the red light again. It doesnt try to choose another port.

Confirmed. I just tried opening a second instance via /RECOVER, and it simply gives a listening error.

Reading kokobaroko's past posts, it doesn't seem obvious whether UPnP is on or off for him, so that didn't really come to mind. I just tested it with UPnP, and it's the same :o

how do you get local peer discovery to work? (both using latest beta)

PC1 is windows vista, PC2 is winXP, both in the same workgroup "MSHOME", no firewall installed in both pc.

I also tried to "add peer" option, but only able to see the peer but no priority

Local peer discovery works. Unlimiting local peers, on the other hand, might be spotty (yes, this is not the same as local peer discovery). The devs know about problems with it, though.

Got the latest, Version 1.7 (build 1703) and now WebUI doesn't work???.

I'm slightly confused, anyone got an idea on how to fix it?

If the torrents don't max your upload speed out, then automatic uplink throttling just won't set the limit too high, and rightfully so -- why should it set a higher limit than it needs if it's on automatic, and periodically checks the network conditions anyway?

Using 6881 port for local net ( for shared downloads between users)

and downloads and uploads go two way: internet and LAN....and in LAN then download to 10Mb\s do upload Kb\s not right way...

I have disabled the *Don't start the download automatically* option under the Downloads tab and the RSS feeds don't start either. In earlier versions of uT, the RSS downloads used to automatically start. This is not a good thing, as I have a lot of RSS subscriptions and don't wanna check every 5 min. to manually start them, especially when at work. Does it happen to anyone else? Is there a solution?

this was mentioned here before... it was "agreed" to add an overriding option to auto-start RSS or not...

Web interface bug:

When you import torrents with web interface you can see torrents only in the web interface in application nothing 0 I have 3 utorent 1.7beta.1703 on 3 different servers and its same bug I am all so using remote desktop for administration and was thinking that's because of remote desktop, it is not.After physical checking I got same result .

Did any 1 report that kind of bug and what's the problem with web interface?

I just got empty error string ("Error:" and nothing else) instead of the out-of-disk-space error message it should've given from torrent auto-downloaded from RSS feed.

Question for DreadWingKnight is there any possibility to gain editorial rights for Serbian part of forum?

What for...?

@wyrmchild: That means the error was left over from a previous session of µTorrent. µTorrent doesn't bother remembering error messages across restarts.
