Does anyone know if it's possible to change the port the "default" bittorrent client in ubuntu uses? By default I think it uses 6881.

I'm not 100% sure what it is. I think it might be the official bittorrent client.

It looks like this

I have no idea what that is. Fire up synaptic and search for bit torrent (name and description) and you should be able to get it

It's the official client.

You should try another one like transmission or deluge :D

When using Ubuntu, I find Azureus works pretty well. If you have any of the KDE components installed, try KTorrent.

Does any other client besides Azureus and rtorrent support transport encryption? If Transmission or Deluge (both of which use libtorrent, I believe.. the libtorrent that doesn't have encryption afaik) support transport encryption, I would use them.

Transmission use libtransmission.

Ktorrent supports encryption too.

Ah... that's right. I believe Transmission has some problems with certain trackers that record statistics, though. Ktorrent would also look very out of place in the array of GTK+ applications running :p more out of place than Azureus, that's for sure.

Sounds like it's time to get a new ISP.
