#4927 closed Enhancement (wontfix)

uTP only

Reported by: funkstar Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Transmission Version: 2.52
Severity: Normal Keywords:


I'd like to see the ability to only use uTP, turning TCP off completely, added to the UI option.

The ability to force uTP only is a feature I miss from uTorrent which, due to the lower overheads involved, allow me to reach much higher downloads speeds with lower pings.

This may be influenced by other things such as ISP's or hardware, but still, it's a useful feature.

I don't see a use case for this.

You're joking right? I explained a use case directly in the ticket. Many, many users suffer from throttling or high latency due to the TCP data transmission. Allowing UDP only allows me to max my download rate, something I've never been able to do since I stopped using uTorrent and started using Transmission, which simply cannot get maximum download rates without this feature.

Just because it doesn't affect you doesn't mean it doesn't affect others...
