UTP? DHT?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have been reading about BitTorrent lately because I never went into details. I was reading Torrent tweaking guides and it told me to uncheck DHT and UTP from the settings which I did. I want to know what are these things, what do they do? and is it ok to disable them?

DHT allows, on non-flagged torrents, the client to get peers from sources other than the tracker.

uTP allows for better bandwidth control.

Guides that tell you to turn them off shouldn't be followed.
