I’m sure most Malaysians knows that TMNet is doing something nasty on the heavy bittorrent users like me. Lately, they’re doing something nastier. Not just blocking peer to peer connection to international user, they’re now blocking P2P client connection to tracker! They’re on their evil plan on totally banning P2P!
At first, it happened to my brother, and he was using BitComet as his BT client. After the Taiwan earthquake, he started to have problems connecting to tracker, and that means he can’t even download anything! NO Tracker Connection = NO Peers Information = Can’t Download file. But that time, I was using uTorrent, and it works just fine. Just this few days ago, they started to block uTorrent client as well. It was a disaster! I tried using Flashget, but no luck as well. TMNet started to BAN ALL CLIENT eventually. Talking about Internet Domination….
Although I must say that connection to private tracker like MyTorrent seems to be working fine
There is a discussion over at the uTorrent forum, and some of them suspects that TMNet is banning connection that has the torrent client user-agent. I did some testing, and it turns out that if you connect to the browser as any normal internet browsers like Firefox or Internet Explorer, the connection to the tracker is fine!
So what can we do? We can change the way our BT Client send the HTTP headers, by using a proxy server. There’s a workaround posted by one of the Lowyat Forumer. By using PAW Project, you can filter the outgoing packet, and even change the User-Agent! So, if you send packet from any torrent client to tracker as Firefox or Internet Explorer, or even as empty user-agent, you can connect to the tracker.
It works so far. I am able to connect to tracker, though the speed is still slow since I have to rely on Local Peers and Seeds. So now, I don’t have any Connection Closed by Peer problem in my utorrent. Kudos to the people of Lowyat Forum.
