    I use Proxifier to redirect all ports from uTorrent through your-freedom (http://your-freedom.net/). I use the basic package from your-freedom which limits traffic to 32KB/s (KiloBYTES per Second) but I have occasionally noticed download/upload speeds go quite a bit beyond that. When setting up Proxifier I pointed it to uTorrent.exe so what I'm thinking is that is that uTorrent might create/use a separate dll or something separate from the main executable that could be allowing some connections outside of the proxy.

    The reason I use the proxy is because I'm using my college internet connection. The largest speeds I noticed were when downloading Ubuntu 10.10 probably about a week ago. Under the normal restrictions it should have taken 6.16 hours but instead only took 2. I'm also not sure how worried I should be about this, I have encryption in uTorrent set to enabled so I'm guessing that any connection that can get past the schools restrictions must be encrypted but, it's still a very curious matter.

    You can also adjust your upload & download speeds from within the uTorrent client itself to help ensure you stay below the radar of the college internet connection, which
    in most instances will ban all suspected p2p torrent traffic...if detected.

    I realize that though as I mentioned I'm not sure how worried I should be. I can only assume that any traffic getting past the proxy must be encrypted since normal p2p is completely blocked on most ports. (except possibly one used for something like skype which I believe also uses TCP).

    The real question is: How is it possible for the speeds to exceed the limits of the proxy when the executable is force tunneled through it. Either uTorrent is using something other than the executable, or your-freedom is allowing extra traffic, or Proxifier and/or your-freedom are allowing something to go outside the proxy.
