µTorrent 1.9 alpha 15380

Recommended Posts

Saturos:

cut off for a few minutes ...l until uTorrent finishes it's initial startup connections...

few minutes ? what startup connections ? how many active torrents are there at the startup time ? if it's your RSS feeds or DHT - try disable them and see.

uTorrent fails to create zero byte files when they appear first in the metadata or last in the metadata. So if the zero byte file is in the middle of the file list in the metadata, then the zero byte file is created. But if it is the first entry or the last it fails to create it. Also what I find interesting is that for a zero byte file that is first in the metadata the progress bar never fills in in the GUI, but a zero byte file that is last in the metadata has its progress bar to 100% even though neither of them are created. I downloaded an old version of uTorrent 1.6.x and the problem is present in it as well.

I was perusing the Advanced settings and found this option called "isp.bep22" and its set to false. I looked in the help file but it doesn't exist. Is this new to µTorrent 1.9? What does it do?

Why does µTorrent need to use HDD and show that my upload is 1-8kb/s and continue to show how much I have uploaded during offline when I have internet disabled or unplugged ? A bit silly behavior..

Preferences > Advanced, set bt.transp_disposition to: 5

Edit:

Bug(?): bandwidth allocation seems to have no or little effect when uTP is used. FYI, devs.

I guess TCP is still used for DHT and maybe also Peer EXchange. Try disabling both and see if you still monitor TCP .

I give up... why is it so important ? do you really believe your ISP will not throttle you if you use only uTP ? remember that communication with trackers will probably remain as is - TCP. Also incoming connection requests from other clients will be TCP even is they are ignored.

point is that ISP doesn't limit any other traffic/ FTP works fine @ 6-8Megabytes/sec (100mbit line), but torrent speed drops after 15minutes of use to 100-150KBytes which is unacceptable for me, so i thought new alpha will help me out with that(TOR network is 2 slow)

@w32sobig: uTP wasn't designed to evade throttling, and isn't purported to do so. That it's not doing as you expect is because you're expecting it to do other than it was meant to. Your situation is outside this topic's scope, so if you want, discuss your ISP throttling issue in another thread.

I read that uTP helped to avoid shaping with some providers so I thought it will help in my case as well (TCP shaping, I suspect its Sandvine), because as i said earlier FTP works just fine

there is no real problem for your ISP to detect your protocol and throttle P2P only. so not doing so for ftp is just as expected...
