I have 2 machines with the oficial client connected on 2 differents ISP. one gets only 8 connections as much and when I run p2pool adds one more. The another client shows once only 35 but when the time passes get more connections. Actually on the last one I have between 70 and 80, suddenly connecting and disconnecting 2 or 3. Is strange to note the first one never adquires more connections when I use the other ISP.
Is this normal? Can this be risky? I don't understand if this can be used to trace clients or not but I suspect this can be a risk if someone lives on a despotic country.
