Thread: Techies please help..A question about bitttorent downloading

  1. #1
    okay, im at a hotel now, and will be at one for a little while.

    Im addicted to bittorent and downloading, but everytime i download, the hotels isp blocks my port 80 and prevents me from surfing the web and downloading at the same time....

    is there a workaround around this?

    can anyone help please?

    what do you mean they block port 80 while your downloading? does the download continue while your doing this? and which port are you running the client through?

    I would suggest encrypting the data that is going through using either uTorrent (my choice ) or Azureus, this might do the trick for you

    Either encrypt with the program your downloading with. or try changing the ports that your using. Could also try using a proxie for downloading as well.

    im assuming they block my port 80 because i cannot surf the internet after utorrent starts downloading torrents for about 5 minutes.

    I have no idea what port im running my client through. If i change it, will that make a difference?

    I think im going to try to encrypt the data and see how that goes.
