This is the story:

I downloaded a file and got a peer connection from 143.231.244.87.

I looked it up using http://www.ip2location.com/free.asp and it turned out to be a non-desired client.

I had previously set up IP filtering and in the log I had received this message:

Loaded ipfilter.dat (329345 entries).

Checking the %APPDATA%\utorrent\ipfilter.dat file I find this range:

143.228.0.0-143.228.255.255

143.229.0.0-143.229.255.255

143.230.0.0-143.230.255.255

143.231.0.0-143.231.255.255 <=======

143.232.0.0-143.232.255.255

143.233.0.0-143.233.255.255

143.234.0.0-143.234.255.255

First question: Why is the peer not blocked? Looks like a bug.

Then I researched the subject a bit and these articles

http://filesharefreak.com/2008/09/28/ipfilterdat-not-blocking-bad-connections-in-utorrent-18/

http://www.techzilo.com/ban-utorrent-peers-ip-address/

talk about right click menus on the "Logger" and "Peers" tab. The first article talks about logging blocked peers to convince yourself that the IP filtering is working.

Second question: Where are the right click menus gone?

Since they seem to have disappeared, where has the functionality gone?

OK. I found the right click menu. One needs to right click in the area below the tabs, not on the tabs themselves.

As for the IP filter. That's a mystery. Now that I turned on the logging of blocked IPs, I can see that it's actually doing something. Strange why the IP mentioned in the original post wasn't blocked.
