uTorrent ignores bandwidth limits to corporate hosted torrents

One of the best things about the uTorrent client is the ability to really control how the files are transferred.  This can be on a schedule, stopped after a cap is reached etc.

If however the the peers are on the local network these bandwidth limits are ignored.  The thinking being that if they are on the local high speed LAN there is no need for bandwidth limits.

If however the local peers are on the other side of a slow WAN link you would still like to enforce the limits.

The setting to do this is

  • From the uTorrent console
  • Options
  • Preferences
  • BitTorrent
  • Check Limit local peer bandwidth
