[WISPA] Next step in the bit torrent arms race

2008-12-01 Thread Jon Auer
Upset about Bell Canada's system for allocating bandwidth fairly
among internet users, the developers of the uTorrent P2P application
have decided to make the UDP protocol the default transport protocol
for file transfers. BitTorrent implementations have long used UDP to
exchange tracker information – the addresses of the computers where
files could be found – but the new release uses it in preference to
TCP for the actual transfer of files. The implications of this change
are enormous.

Chuck,

  Whatcha think of packet limiting? :) It works eh? Saves my hind end
daily!! I have found that these MikroCore routers do a great job as well - -
same philosophy - - different hardware.
