Re: Critical Vulnerability Discovered in uTorrent

Utorrent only works for me with no problems if I keep my upload speed at 20 kb/s, which totally sucks because I'm seeding like 60 torrents all at 0.5 kb/s. If I make the upload speed more than 30kb/s, then my internet (firefox) starts to go REALLY slow, and my download speed drops dramatically.

I'm thinking of flashing new firmware to my linksys 54g wireless router. Hopefully that will take care of the new upload issue. I do not want to use a different client and have to reload all of the torrents I'm sharing. I seem to remember getting MUCH better upload speeds without this problem with the previous versions of uTorrent. My D/L speed is still pretty fast though (for a 3mb/s connection.)

Re: Critical Vulnerability Discovered in uTorrent

No offence, but seeding 60 shows on a 3mb service is waaaaaay too many (even if many are inactive). Ten would be more than enough, less would be better. I believe some sites have a ten seed max (Dime?). Unless you have speed problems with only a few open - and actively seeding with no firewalled leechers.

Someone more experienced on here could comment further.

lame. totally lame. that is not seeding.. dial up speed is 6kb/s. you are seeding at a rate less than a 1200 baud modem.

in many circles that is frowned upon..

Re: Critical Vulnerability Discovered in uTorrent

You should not be seeding more than ten torrents at a time unless you have some super-duper incredible pipe, which a normal user does not have. TTD even limits you to seeding ten torrents max (and it sounds like maybe Dime does also?). Have you ever done a speed test to see what you max upload is? http://speedtest.net/

Sorry about the column aligment, but you get the idea....

Almost NO Cable line or ADSL line should be using upload speeds higher than 2 mbit/sec!

Re: Critical Vulnerability Discovered in uTorrent

SO, even with a 5 mbit/sec upload MAX, the maximum active torrent setting should be 15.....

Re: Critical Vulnerability Discovered in uTorrent

Let's be clear: There is no critical flaw in 1.77. Not even one. Certain overzealous rationazis have fallen in love with 1.8+ because a new crippleware feature introduced in it. 1.77 is the way to go. If I have to decide between upgrading it or leaving a site, it's not really a choice. Torrent sites are a dime a dozen but there is only one uTorrent 1.77... I will never upgrade.
Ever.

Re: Critical Vulnerability Discovered in uTorrent

version 1.8.1 according to threads elsewhere and at utorrent.com states that issue has been resolved. i use AVG Internet Security and if there was an issue with the latest version that would find it in a heartbeat. just my 2 cents

Yeah...from the looks of it you are almost as far as you can get from being a ratio-nazi

you might never upgrade, but rest assured you will never be a respected member of a trading community either -- considering how much you've leeched from our site alone, the fact that you've offered up no B&Ps/vines/freebies to make up for you leeching so much, and then you post in here flaunting it

Re: Critical Vulnerability Discovered in uTorrent

I have been using Azureus (now called Vuze) and have great connection speeds
up speeds at 125 kB/s
down speeds at 800+ kB/s
If you tweak the settings...it works great without all the crap you guys are posting about with utorrent.. and it uses minimal system resources
just my 2 cents

anyone have an answer on this one?? i did the Utorrent upgrade monday night i think, and ever since then my utorrent has been down 100%. Nothing going up, nothing coming down! the green check comes on for about 6-7mins then goes away. before the upgrade i was uping 82 seprate seeds at between 40kb's & 80kb's each with no problem for over a month! i checked with my internet provider and they said my speed rate should be between 10 mbit & 12mbit so that's why i could upload so much at once (or so i thought)

but what i'm hearing here is that regardless i should only have 15 torrents open max for up or down, ever??
