High upload at sub: World of Warcraft?

I see a sub has high upload for the last two hours: I torch it and see
150 open connections.

I know them well so I call and his son says he is doing a World of Warcraft update.

No p2p program running: Is that how WOW updates: of every other player.

In settings he cannot see how to limit upload

Good thing is: I do: lol

I do believe that game does use a torrent style update system

You need to switch him back to the classic update so it just downloads a file rather than using a torrent style download.

What is his download limit? Lowering the upload speed may do nothing for downloading.

I don't mind giving them high download: its using high upload that bothers me: that's why I lower it.

This is your only p2p user?

As for google directions on how to disable WOW P2P downloads: "when you open the launcher, go to the preferences in the top left and uncheck the box to enable p2p."

I am just surprised in todays day and age you don't have a bunch of customers using P2P ...
