funchords Posted July 7, 2007 Report Share Posted July 7, 2007 B3170 uTorrent Double-counts certain peersOn a new swarm that I am seeding to a private swarm (No DHT/PEX, not a lot of thrash), I noticed that the General Tab said for Peers: 12 of 20 connected (14 in swarm). If accurate, it would unusual for this group and tracker for my client to have six more known peers than the tracker has so soon in a new swarm.I copied the peer list (Click on Peers tab, right click on the display, choose "Copy Peer List" and pasted it into Notepad. Indeed there were 20 lines, but 6 of them are duplicate IP addresses. Note, I have obfuscated the first octet of the IP address:zzz.216.172.222:25137zzz.175.215.65:26399zzz.244.239.129:65535zzz.230.184.200:43032zzz.7.37.136:29488zzz.9.171.233:65535zzz.21.8.3:65535zzz.249.61.213:22zzz.194.115.106:65535zzz.50.203.26:65535zzz.67.233.167:65535zzz.143.124.7:31638zzz.244.239.129:7261 (dup)zzz.193.199.151:7837zzz.67.233.167:53206 (dup)zzz.9.171.233:8888 (dup)zzz.21.8.3:24895 (dup)zzz.50.203.26:31962 (dup)zzz.93.101.79:6881zzz.194.115.106:49575 (dup)This confirmed that the correct display should have been Peers: 12 of 14 connected (14 in swarm) -- like I said, it's a stable group.In each case, the earlier entry has a port of "65535" (some sentinal value?). Perhaps if the first contact was Incoming, then uTorrent is counting it a second time when the IP address is reported by the tracker? I'm guessing, but hopefully this is enough to go on, since I don't know for sure what port 65535 means to uTorrent. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
