Utorrent dht always updating
The Pirate Bay tracker has been in a state of flux for a few weeks now, mostly offline. The easiest solution is to go 'trackerless' and use the Distributed Hash Table (DHT), but there are many myths and misunderstandings that can put people off using it.
DHT has been included with many clients since it first debuted in the summer of 2005.
) The Client forces it on for you and keeps DHT " seeded ", even when the tracker is up or down.3.
) It will share your passkey, enabling other people to download torrents masquerading as you. Always Disable, all DHT, Local Peer Discovery , Local Peer Exchange and turn off Limit local peer bandwidth also.
Of course, we ask those claiming other clients leak to let us know so we can test it. Blocklists, used on your client and on the trackers, are generally ineffective and easily circumvented through the use of residential connections.
The flag is set by the torrent file, not the tracker (although the tracker can add the flag to the file, it’s still set by the torrent), and Bit Comet does NOT ignore the flag.
An example would be this statement from a staff member at a private tracker: Not all torrent clients respect the private flag.
But if you are using a client like Vuze, u Torrent or similar if the private flag is on (set by the tracker) the DHT, peer exchange settings etc are ignored.
Not really a surprise since the documentation and even the Wikipedia page are filled with technical jargon, and no simple explanation.
Without that basic understanding confusion is inevitable.
