Re: Attention uTorrent and BitTorrent users!

You can upgrade utorrent after you are finished downloading. I'm not that familiar with utorrent, but on Azureus when it does an upgrade, it will do all the upgrade stuff it needs and then say "you need to restart for the upgrade to take affect. Do you wish to restart now?" and you can say no and then finish the upgrade after your torrents are done.

Just download the newish utorrent.exe/stop your torrents/exit utorrent/replace your actual utorrent.exe with the new utorrent.exe/start again utorrent/resume your torrents and stfu.

Re: Attention uTorrent and BitTorrent users!

STFU = Share The Fantastic mUsic


SORRY FOR THE CONFUSION

Well, finally I switched to 1.7.7. The UI is a bit slower than 1.6 (build 474), so I will try it a little more time. The 1.6 was running like a rocket, here.

Just searched on some forums and it seems that the weird behaviour (system hangs) I experienced a month ago (describe on page 1), was due to this exploit. Someone said the vulnerability is more prone to be open when using public trackers. And I remember clearly, when the problem happened, I was dl'ing some books at a well-known bay. This explains how the crash issue got solved once I finished that torrent.

Don't mind jameskg. He's just pissed that this vulnerability was revealed so he can't launch anymore uTorrent DOS attacks.

Re: Attention uTorrent and BitTorrent users!

obviously luigi didnt count on utorrent making good on that dos attack with a newer version that pretty much resolves that and/or he probably dont know about peer guardian either...

Re: Attention uTorrent and BitTorrent users!

How can I improve upload speed on utorrent 1.6? I used to be able to u/l at 40kB/s but I've noticed over the last few days it barely gets above 10kB/s with a bunch of peers connected.

On Options > Preferences > Bittorrent, under "additional BitTorrent Features"
"Enable DHT Network" & Enable DHT for new torrents" are unchecked while
"ask tracker for scrape information" and "Enable Peer Exchange" are checked.
For "Protocol Encryption", "Outgoing: Forced" with "Allow incoming legacy connections" checked.

This is how I've had my settings and haven't changed it since these are the recommended configurations. I'm not firewalled and the ports being used are open.

So I'm basically wondering why uploading is so slow

Re: Attention uTorrent and BitTorrent users!

This only affects the mentioned versions, right?

Cause I use build 86-something (v 6.0.3) of BitTorrent, and I want to know if I should be worried.
