Suggestion
« on: September 22, 2007, 11:30:15 AM »
Well as you may know, some ISP's such as comcast as limiting continuous connections, such as for torrents. (i have comcast.) And think the reason people max out at 50kb/s after 5-10 seconds is due to this. I think you should make an option like Utorrent where u can enable encryption so your isp cant block how fast you can upload.


Thank you :D

encryption hides WHAT data you sending, not HOW FAST you doing

No, I understand it that encryption only makes the bittorrent packets unreadable by the comcast filters so thay do not know that it is a BT connection. A continuous connection is required to send the encrypted data.

the connection is always visible.
anyway encryption is in to-do-list, for other reasons.
in the while you can try with an encrypted server.
