misha222 Posted March 12, 2008 Report Share Posted March 12, 2008 I set up uTorrent to work with HTTP Tunnel Client V4.4.4000. It seems to be working, even for peer-to-peer communication, as I have messages in the Tunnel Client log telling me each time a new connect request is issued by uTorrent.I had to set up uTorrents preferences to use a SOCKS proxy, at 127.0.0.1 on port 1080.But I noticed something really strange... Even when I kill the Tunnel Client process, uTorrent seems to continue to function like it never missed a beat. It continues to perform uploads and downloads normally, but this should not be the case if I kill the listener on port 1080!Either I never configured things correctly, and uTorrent is still not using my proxy, or else it was using the proxy when it was there, but just went back to using my standard IP address when it had to. I'm almost certain that the proxy is being used, because I see messages to that effect in the proxy log file (IP addresses that match the addresses of my peers from uTorrent). But if that's the case then HOW CAN uTorrent simply "keep working" when the server listening on 127.0.0.1:1080 is shut down?If the box is checked in "preferences" to say "Use Proxy" then it should NOT work if the proxy is not working properly. There should be no "assumption" that the user just wants to expose his IP Address if there happens to be some problem with his proxy.Please email me a reply if you can.
