    Hey, does anyone know stats are reported for multi-tracker torrents? Is the total upload and download reported to both trackers, or does the client keep track which which tracker the peers you're connected to are from?

    i've downloaded a multi-tracker torrent from Demonoid once and as far as i remember, the total download and upload have been reported to the tracker (i found it surprising though).
    that said, you have to know that multi-trackers torrents are generally forbidden on private trackers..

    OK, didn't know that. I had already downloaded win 7 rc1 from one tracker and forgot about it. I grabbed the same torrent from a different tracker and loaded in in utorrent. It said the torrent was already present and asked if I wanted to load the trackers from it. That just got me wondering how stats report with multi-tracker torrents.

    never do that on any private tracker, you would get banned for cheating.

    The reason it said that the torrent was already present, is that there is still a copy of it on your system. It will be found at - C:\Users\YOURNAME\AppData\Roaming\uTorrent

    Demonoid is not private, but public.
    And there's NO private tracker that allows multitracked stuff, upload a torrent set as public on your client with more than an address to a private tracker and you get banned immediately
