Avoid Traffic-Shaping On BitTorent

Today there most scary internet feature for ISP is P2P activities, They eat huge off bandwidth for free and will cause ISP to provide bigger trunk than what they suppose to. But if we pay attention of the data flow through P2P, ISP has slow down the data that normally congest their trunk. Most of the ISP actively engage with traffic shaping. Bandwidth throttling, or the nicer words, bandwidth management to keep amount of bandwidth consumed by high traffic applications to minimum.

Well how to ovecome this at user end point?

Well, you can try encrypting your traffic, changing port number, changing the way protocol behaves, reducing the amount of one way traffic, or hiding your traffic with your encrypted traffic.

  1. To encrypt your traffic, RC4 encryption offered by many popular bitTorrent client will obfuscate not only the header but the entire stream, which will give ISP difficulty to detect that your are using BitTorent.
  2. Secondly is to change to port number. The default port for BitTorrent transfer is 6881. As a reslut of ISP interference, all client allow us to change the port number for BitTorrent transfer. Whenever we change our port, we also need to adjust our router to allow incoming connection. you can get the entire guideline from www.portforward.com.
  3. To change the way the BitTorrent protocol behave, we can use a "lazy bitfield" feature to hide seeder from ISP.
  4. In order to reduce one-way transfer, client need to be set to have same or less ratio betwwen download and upload activities.
Well, all the above are just an alternative that may or may not work onto your internet connection. as we learn how to trick, the ISP also learn fast how to tackle our tricks. So study hard and study smart just make sure we are few step header than our ISP.
