Hi all, I was wondering what this version of uTorrent sends out as its peer id - I guessed -UT1810- but we're still getting banned client from our tracker.

Here I'm assuming there's site documentation... are you sure uT 1.8.1 is allowed? It's possible something relating to

Note to tracker staff: update your build checks! 1.8 is different from 1.7.7. The reserved bit is no longer set.

...unless 1.8 isn't allowed either. If there is site resource, are you sure it's not already being addressed?

looks fine to me, and works here... so it picks it up and just don't start DLing it, ha ? I suggest you open you own thread in the troubleshooting section.

Hello,

The latest version I downloaded (12639) no longer has the ability to sort by multiple columns in the main listview (by holding SHIFT when clicking a second column). Will this feature come back? When was it removed? I upgraded to the latest version when my PC was re-imaged, so I don't recall what version I was using previously.

Thanks.

Secondary sorting still works. I'm using it right now.

You do need to make sure that your primary sorting is "compatible". Like, primary sorting by downloaded amount and secondary sorting by anything else won't work.

Thanks for the quick reply! And sorry for the incorrect report. I was trying to sort first by "Added on" and then by "Done" (amount completed), which was not responding. But based on your advice I tried it the other way around and it works.

Cheers!

Some sorts to not have "tiers" of sorting. Prime instance being Added On... It is highly unlikely/impossible to get two torrents with identical added on times. Therefore there is no subset of torrents to sort by.

Personally I like Status > Share Ratio

It's basically because for the secondary sort to work, you need to have items that are identical in the primary sorting.

the question was why should it behave this why ? sort is sort (for each column per it's type), why should columns' types effect it's operation at all ?

Because that's the only way for it to behave. It's a problem in practice, not theory. With certain column types, you aren't going to get any torrents that have identical values, so a secondary sort would never be able to sort within those.

Do understand the terminology used. Secondary sorting is used only when primary sorting is not sufficient (it is secondary to the primary). When is primary sorting not sufficient? When multiple items have the same values under the primary sort key/column. How does µTorrent break the tie? Using secondary sorting.

One thing I encountered on some forums:

It seems like µTorrent can't handle ~60 seeding torrents and 1 download for me.

When I seed my 60 torrents without downloading anything, there are no problems whatsoever. However if I start a download, I won't get max. speed and it seems like I'm not getting enough connections (4 connections for the downloading torrent, 0 for the seeding torrents). In order to get max. speed I have to stop all the seeding torrents, so the connections on the downloading torrent raise from 4 to ~25.

I can confirm that. Works the same.
