Re: sandvine workaround

Before, when I finished d/ling a show, all my torrents went "blue" (in Azureus) once I finished downloading. I could no longer upload anything to anyone. Now I can seed and upload to encrypted peers. The encrypted peers that aren't being sandvined can seed to the people not using encryption.

It's not quite as smooth as before, but I've successfully seeded 2 shows to Dime this week. Yeah I said the "d" word, but I needed to try this out with a larger swarm size.
excellent! Glad to hear that a workaround actually works. I've been getting some really crappy newsgroups speeds lately and I'm starting to wonder if it might be some kind of sandivine type blocking. And I don't use Comcrap.
