    In the course of troubleshooting a local net problem, I checked on the MAXX' profile in my router. It says that Teredo and μTorrent are both active on the phone. Teredo may only be there to pass IPv6 addresses through, but μTorrent???

    What's going on here?

    Teredo provides the tunneling for IPv6 to IPv4 translation. uTorrent is an IPv4 downloader.

    Am I missing the question?

    Given that Teredo can be used for malware, and I didn't expect to find μTorrent, I wanted to verify that these weren't indications of malware problems. In this case, it looks as though there are no surprises. I'm good with that. [/grin]
