View Full Version : Hide IP Platinum - using my data allowance?

28-04-2007, 10:16 AM
I've recently switched to iHug Plan 3 (fair use) and for the life of me can't see why I'm still on dial-up speeds every day when I have set Azureus to only download torrents 4 hours a day, 2am - 6pm. I checked the activity and on a 300mb file only a further 20mb had downloaded. So where is the data going, given that I've set the download/upload ratio at 4/1?
I'm wondering if Hide IP has something to do with it.

Any ideas?

If you've only uploaded 20MB on a 300MB file using bittorrent then your problem is most likely to be with uploading. I don't know about that particular product but bittorrent should not be used via a proxy as it will be far too slow. You have to give out your IP address to use bittorrent properly - there's no way around it as others need to be able to contact you.
