µTorrent 1.8.3 beta 15619

Recommended Posts

Oh, I see. dwk is right.

For uTP connections, all packets are sent through a single socket, regardless of if it's incoming or outgoing.

for TCP connections, all incoming connections will be bound to the listen port (which is the same port as the uTP traffic, but TCP instead of UDP). Outgoing TCP connections however, will be bound to a random port by default (determined by the OS), unless you specify the outgoing port range, in which case outgoing TCP connections will be bound to a port within that range.

New beta. The uploading should be better than before with bt.transp_disposition set to 13.

- Change: Enable DEP Compatibility and Image Randomization

Great news to security entusiast like me :) I'll try the new beta right now...

@zdnko. That's great stuff. Thanks! This issue has actually been fixed for 1.9 alpha. The main purpose of 1.8.3 is to improve its uTP support, so that rolling out 1.9 with uTP support on by default will not screw with peoples download rates, since a lot of peers will have good uTP support for incoming connections already. Whether this should be back-ported or not is a balance between how much the uTP can be expected to be used in 1.8.3 version keeping code changes down to keep it stable.

I suppose it would make sense to back-port this particular fix though.

i can't enable DHT or peer changing in 1.8.3 nor 1.9. Tried globaly too, its enabled in options but in tracker list it says its disabled

Thank you

Checking for update from help menu doesn't show that beta 14984 is available. Was it intentional (previous beta) and will this beta repot beta's availability? 'Update to beta versions' is checked.

sometimes it just takes awhile of them testing it on the forums here for them to want to roll it out to a lot of people.

@Bence: if the torrent is private, it's normal that DHT/PEX/LPD are disabled even if uT allows them globally.

You already mentioned the same thing yesterday, and the reason as explained in osmosis's reply still hasn't changed.

Edit (2009-04-05) @ below: Okay, gotcha.

I'll try to explain what I've mentioned. If µtorrent offers to download 14809, I expect that this version will be downloaded, not 14984.

There is a delay between a new build and the auto-update from server via your client. If you're in a hurry to test the new beta, download it from the board when Firon post it.

syncing the actual update/build with the updater message should be a trivial thing, I'm sure it's just a matter of a simple error of the admin here ... right Firon ? ... ;)

I thought it was intentional that a new build here isn't immediate available to the beta auto-updater in uTorrent. This is to avoid mass-download and use if a particularly crash-happy version slips out.

Right, but what fatspirit is reporting is that autoupdate is serving build 14984. The problem now is that the message sent with it is outdated, and for build 14908.

No change here with new beta, it is still connecting with many peers at the beginning but there is only download or no transfer at all. Upload goes to normal speed for few bytes and then it's stopping at all. This is with transp set to 13 and 15. Upload goes normal only sometimes when somehow good peer will happen : / Makes me 20mb uploaded with 2 gb downloaded at the end of the day.
