Multiple peers at same percentage.?


Recommended Posts


Had a quick look through the forum to see if this question

had been answered, probably didn't type the right words

in the search.

Question is that sometimes when seeding a file uTorrent

is accepting connections from lots of peers who have the

same client, very similar IP's and they are all stuck at

say 2%. The percentage does not change for those peers

who are downloading the file.

There are maybe 30 or so peers all at the same percentage.

Can you explain this?

... since when, Ctrl-P -> Advanced bt.send_have_to_seed is default ON. Unless you're using compact exchanges you have to find out somehow they're a seed?

A note about the hostile peers possibility. Current Azurues appears to be so if you see them anything less... that raises a flag. Additionally what DWKnight is saying is do the first 3 IP numbers match, like ... they can be added to http://utorrent.com/faq.php#What_is_ipfilter.dat.3F

The first 3 numbers are different but all the rest are

the same apart from the next set which are the same

for about 20 or 30 or so peers:

xxx.89.172.72.in-addr.arpa (20 of those)

xxx.90.172.72.in-addr.arpa (20 of those)

xxx.91.172.72.in-addr.arpa (etc...)

All the connections are Azureus


Dont know if this is usual or not but

only about 1 in 10 peers has a port

number listed next to their IP.

Have stopped the upload for now.


Just Checked my AC/DC torrent and the same is happening

for that except all the IP addresses are the same apart from

the last 3 numbers. The client is Azureus again but

version and the percentages vary from 0% up to

the 90's.

;) It's all about knowledge and knowing is half the battle G.I. Joe.

Another thing... you will now notice that legitimate peers would increase % faster because you're not wasting slots connecting to the useless peers. Tell everyone you know to keep a look out for useless peers and ipfilter them (that is if their client supports such a feature).
