Thread: uTorrent Encryption Doesn't Really Work?

  1. #1
    I'm with Virgin Media and i'm using uTorrent 1.7.7 and I have ticked the use encryption box but still my speeds get messed about with and they drop like crazy after a few hours seeding/downloading. Does it actually work or is there a better method?

    Yes - it works.

    But it is only 1 factor out of many factors that affect your overall speed.

    Number of peers and length of time of torrent, traffic shaping by your ISP, other utorrent settings, OS settings, time of day, experience in knowing what works best on your machine, many others yet to be assessed etc.

    Just to mention encryption as a factor and expect us to give reasonable knowledgeable responses is over ambitious to say the least.

    Have you ever set up your utorrent preferences to suit your line speeds for instance?
    Yes Sir, I'm Right On It!!

    I ran a speed test when I first got uTorrent and I matched it to the speed setup panel so I think that is ok. Hmmm I have DHT enabled I believe and I hear alot of people say switch that off not sure though.

    In some sites that is enough reason for instant banning.

    thats because it allows peeps that aren't on the tracker to snatch that torrent from you also.. so in essence it unsecured..
    TRADING SUCKS DEAL WITH IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    There are 10 kinds of people who know binary. Those who do, and those who don't.

    Options -> Preference -> Bittorrent -> Untick both DHT boxes. Done. DHT disabled.

    Edit; Or you can do it as the above poster wrote.
