Continued inbound UDP packets


Recommended Posts

Hi There-

I notice in my firewall that I get continued inbound packets to the custom BT port that I had chosen. I get about 20 a minute or more. What's weird is that I haven't downloaded anything via bittorrent in over a month.

Is it normal for attempts to keep coming in after this long?

How big are the swarms you're connected to? UDP is connectionless. Individual peers do not know you don't exist until they try (and fail... several times). Compound that with non-standard peer cache retention times...

It's nothing to worry about at least running uTorrent. There's no data or anything in those payload.. just requests for more peers.

OT: Have you updated to the 1.8.1 release? And why haven't you torrented anything in the last month, surely something interesting has occurred? There was recently the new Wikipedia educational distribution. ;)
