    I believe this topic isn't against the forum rules, if it is i am sorry, just delete/close this topic.

    Well i was looking at my Utorrent and what not and decided to look at the Peers i was uploading to and i saw this, it's the first time i have seen anything like it, unless i am really a n00b at torrents, but i don't think i am.

    All IP addresses really close within range, all using the same Torrent App, almost identical Flags and they have all been on 1.1% percent for a couple of days now.

    I don't know what it is, so i though you guys might tell me what it is? Thanks

    Oh and im downloading the new Futurama Movie if that has anything to do with it.

    EDIT: The list goes on for longer, i just cant get it all into the photo.

    [hypothesis] It might be that there's only one seeder, but on a network with dynamic IP addressing. Every time (s)he logs on, there's a different IP address from within a certain address range, so the torrent protocol identifies it as a different seeder. That's why the download is so slow, too.

    Try finding another torrent.

    Maybe a clustered bittorrent client?
    someone runs multiple PCs on a network, and uses 1 client application on each computer...
    They're all downloading the same file, but each client downloads a different part of the file.
    The downloads are then much faster because each PC is considered as a different client... although it's the same person.
    Get the idea? That's what I think it is (just a theory!)

    I already downloaded it, I'm just the 1:3 ratio guy. Okay well thanks for those theories, it does seem to make sense.

    If this is a public torrent I wouldn't be surprised if these belong to a p2p monitoring company. It's a bit too obvious, though...

    They all belong to this company, based in California (hint: that's where Hollywood is located...):

    That's only a hosting company, the entire 72.172.64.0 - 72.172.95.255 range belongs to them, that's nearly 8000 IPs. Most likely that p2p monitoring company just rented a "few" (more like several dozen...) servers there.

    To stamp out those pesky torrent monitors, I usually suggest running Peer Guardian while using p2p programs.
