I've noticed something strange with certain Torrent transfers that I can't figure out.
There's been a few torrents recently where the swarm has been small - only 1/2 seeds, maybe half a dozen peers max.
Currently using uTorrent - which displayed (for example) 0(2) seeds - 0 connected - 2 in swarm, yet the torrent was able to download to completion. Using DHT/PEX. I assume if my client couldn't connect to the seeds and the others could then my client would get the required data from the other peers which could connect to the seeds.
Q - Anyone know why my client couldn't connect to the seeds and more importantly didn't display their IPs ?
I'm beginning to wonder if there is a way to hide your IP when doing torrent transfers.
