I am running a Transmission Bittorent server to upload various Linux ISOs.

I am currently being flooded by UDP packets. I mean the DoS protection in the Archer C5 home router and it blocks parts of my home network.

I am unsure if I even need to have the UDP port open for the Transmission daemon to accept incoming connections correctly.

So my first question is, does Transmission Bittorrent client even use UDP?


Yes, Transmission uses both TCP (standard BitTorrent) and UDP (BitTorrent over µTP).
