I'm thinking of switching to Azureus and I'd really appreciate your help in setting it up. How do I completely shut off DHT, the Distributed Database, and Peer Exchange? Do I go to Tools -> Options -> Plugins -> and uncheck the checkboxes next to Distributed DB & Distributed Tracker that says load at startup? Any other settings to change with regards to DHT, the Distributed Database, & Peer Exchange? Also how about all the other plugins that are checked and set to load at starup. Is it ok to turn some or all of these as well?
The reason I want to turn off DHT, the Distributed Database, & Peer Exchange is that I don't want to announce the torrents publicly from private trackers. According to the Azureus wiki thats not a concern because it states that DHT is only a fall-back mechanism. Is this true? Also are the torrents from private trackers already setup to prevent the use of DHT with them even if the bittorrent client has DHT turned on?
Sorry for the deluge of questions but you'd really be clearing up a lot of this for me.
Thanks in advance for your help
