Latest uTorrent 2.2.1 Beta fixes Socks issue with PublicTracker/PrivateTracker

UtorrentThe issues that some people were facing with uTorrent and our PublicTracker/PrivateTracker configurations which caused uTorrent to freeze has been traced down to a bug in the uTorrent code which we believe to have been fixed in the latest Beta release.

We haven’t had the opportunity to test this out yet so appreciate customer feedback on this!

    Seems fine now. Perhaps there were some other programs causing that.

    I spoke too soon. It still freezes…

    same here. freezes over after 1 hour of use. i think we will have to wait for further development/news either from bolehvpn staff or utorrent site.

    anyway, thanks for the possible solution given here. its worth a shot.

    My experience with Utorrent 2.2 has been nothing but headache.

    Many times it has froze on me. Torrents speed would just drops to 0 after a while.

    Killing the torrent would NOT remove it from the memory.

    And worst of all –> disk caching problems. Have to tweak the settings or will cause Utorrent to crash with disk is full error.

    Even the icons are terrible to a point the previous icons were made available to replace the new ones.

    Personally, Utorrent 2.2 simply sucks.
