Thread: DHT Indexer

  1. #1
    I've got a number of torrents in my queue that I reactivate from time to time. Several of them no longer feature a working tracker at all. And are no longer available from where I originally downloaded them. Yet, they still have peers. Though I'm often the only seed, I doubt theses are peers still kicking around from late 2009.
    They're being added to the pool somehow and I'm wondering if it's not some sort of DHT indexer. Something like this exist?

    Well, if you have DHT enabled for that torrent, then I don't see why not...

    Please provide evidence of that having DHT enabled disrupts correct stats updating on private trackers. DHT does not apply for private torrents, so you have nothing to worry about.

    OK, provide proof of what you're saying, if that term suits you better.

    Nobody said these were from a private tracker. In any case, DHT essentially turns every peer into a tracker, for lack of a better term. Each peer then gives other peers information on who else is in the pool.
    Thats my understanding anyway.

    True, and your understanding of DHT is correct.

    It's just that it kind of annoys me to see people say "turn DHT off, otherwise your private tracker stats will be incorrect, and you'll get banned for cheating" when DHT and PEX don't come into effect at all for private torrents.

    It does if you're a cunt with poor morals and slightly more technical knowledge than a stool.

    Oh, and as for the original question, the peers could've come from peer exchange, local peer discovery or DHT.
