Linksys, Bittorrent, and DDOS
Ok so I can't stand it no more. Everytime I use Azureus, my internet slows down. When I go surfing the web, the browser will wait with the status bar telling me its looking up the website. I looked around here and I know linksys routers are not exactly the best and can clog up every now and then. But it seems that after running Azureus, I'm still getting a lot of connection attempts from all over the place trying to get to that port. I guess it could be called a DDOS attack, even if I caused it myself. Is it that the other people don't know that I shut down already? Seems like a flaw in their(BitTorrent) system. But I noticed this when I had booting into windows only to have my firewall go nuts about it. So would changing BitTorrent clients do anything about it? Changing port number? Or just not do it at all?
