From my experience Deluge never breaks the limits, unless told to with a local peer.
The client I have seen has been one peer, someone on two different Sky Broadband IPs in the UK, using a client showing in Deluge as libtorrent_leap/126.96.36.199. Looking into it this is perhaps Vuze leap, a cut-down version of Vuze. Either the official Vuze leap is somehow tricking Deluge, or this person has hacked Vuze-leap and is exploiting Deluge?
Attached is a screenshot, but it is not good. I took the screenshot after getting rid of the leech with
All the shot shows is the upload tapering off, but it was maxing my line (not a lot - 40k on a good day, it's a 3G mobile phone). Also, my^W The GIMP was in the way and so most of the screenshot was of The GIMP. By the time I took another screenie, the peer had vanished from Deluge.
Code: Select all
root@torrent:~$ iptables -A INPUT --source 176.26.211.nnn -j DROP
I'm not trying to file this as a bug report, just as a WTF and hopefully as a heads-up if the WTF has any merit. I dunno if anyone has the infrastructure (to use an overkill word) to give Vuze-leap a try with Deluge?
FWIW Deluge is the one from Debian Jessie, 1.3.10. Plugins enabled are AutoAdd, DefaultTrackers, Execute, ltConfig, Pieces and Stats.
