Creating new ports?

Hi

I have a question about how uTorrent manages its ports. Does it create a new incoming port for each torrent so that all pieces for that torrent come through that? Or, does it listen only on one port and multiplexes all connections going through that port? If that's the case, what if a peer sends all pieces through just one port?

Thanks

I've read through that indeed, but I'm afraid it wasn't very clear to me whether the port for *all* handshakes and the port for receiving *all* pieces are actually the same. Is it not implementation-specific, given that the client could theoretically open N different ports for N different trackers.
