Fix stupidity with connections


Recommended Posts

Bit torrent continually swamps out other applications on the computer by overloading the use of ports

Even with the number of connections limited in the preferences to 150 and a per torrent of 60

"little snitch" clearly shows the application trying to use over 2000 active connections....

This is way in excess of the capability for a modern router.

If little snitch and your router are counting each udp stream the way I think they are, they're not behaving properly.

The number of TCP connections will not exceed 150 globally.

UDP gets counted differently, and in the case of some less-than-stellar routers will get tracked badly and trigger router choking. That is a bug more in the router than in BitTorrent.
