Ramalama1 Posted April 21, 2008 Report Share Posted April 21, 2008 I read everything I could find on the subject but ended up with more questions than I started out with.First, I thought that PEX was not the same across clients so that our version is not the same as say Azureus's version.Second, I thought that PEX only worked across the same domain or ISP.Today I downloaded two torrents from the same private tracker. One arrived with PEX enabled and one without. Thinking back to what I read, I disabled PEX in the job that had it only to discover, to my dismay, that the only peer that has 100% was discovered through PEX and that by disabling it I snubbed that peer. OUCH. Well the actual person was not snubbed, just their computer so I guess it isn't all that bad. Having discovered this error on my part I renabled that peer via PEX and am now happily downloading from him/her. I know that from the peer info. that this is not someone on my network or provider - this person is not even in the same country as me. Incidentally, the PEX enabled torrent is not on the current port that this particular tracker asks that we use to upload new .torrents to.Can someone fill in the blanks for me?
