Need uTorrent 1.9 urgently - 1.8.x banned

Recommended Posts

We were given 24 hours to downgrade from 1.8.x to 1.6.1 (1.7.7 tolerated but frowned upon)

We were told that all 1.8.x versions will be banned on our private tracker.

And that many other private trackers are now banning all versions of 1.8 as well.

The reasons (a quote):

Our issues are many, including intermitant packet dropping & bad or non reporting of status messages.

I am using 1.8 stable and have no problems at all, I like it very much.

So please, 1.8.9 will not do, I need 1.9.0 :)

It's not packet dropping or non-reporting of status messages. The problem is that it exceeds the half-open limit (thanks to crappy Windows networking) and eventually it just has an endless queue of connections that can never complete, so it effectively stalls. It's much less likely to happen if you've patched tcpip.sys.

But it's been fixed in 1.8.1.

I see that the default value of half-open in advanced settings in 1.8 is 8 - so it is ignored? because it is not too high even for unpatched windows.

I also have problems with all versions of uTorrent if the max number of connections is set too high, even without increasing half-open, - newsbin stops downloading on nntp even though it is using a different ISP through a different network adapter but on the same computer, again, probably a windows issue.

It wasn't that µTorrent ignored the limit. It was that it couldn't properly detect whether it was hitting the limit because of an issue with Windows.

Having too many connections can kill plenty of routers. That I had to write a checklist mentioning that is proof enough how widespread an issue it is -- and proof of why it is important to stick to the Speed Guide's settings rather than selecting arbitrary connection limits.
