Banning utorrent users for sending too many pex messages


Recommended Posts

I recently noticed that utorrent often bans peers for sending too many pex messages. It seems this behaviour is known for quite some time. And if these peers violate a rule, than a ban is fine with me.

But the banned peers are all using utorrent. So some utorrent clients apparently violate a rule about too many pex messages. And if my client bans others, there's a good chance I'm also banned sometimes since I'm also using utorrent...

Why are at least some utorrent clients (and I've never seen azareus or others getting banned) behaving in a way that is deemed ban-worthy by the utorrent devs? And how can I make sure my own client isn't doing exactly the same, therefore getting me banned as well?
