question on "use proxy for p2p connections"


Recommended Posts

I have a socks server running in my box. I have set utorrent to use my socks server and have ticked "use proxy for p2p connections".

when I ran sysinternal's tcpview to see all the connections being made by utorrent, it seems utorrent is making direct connections to the other peer instead of connecting through my socks proxy.

is this normal?

thank you

I noticed utorrent making direct connections from my local IP when I had DHT enabled (and auto-update disabled), in spite of the fact that I had assigned a valid proxy for use with all peer communications. Once I disabled DHT, I never saw a single outgoing connection from my local IP by utorrent.

I've brought this up before:
