EdX Posted April 15, 2009 Report Share Posted April 15, 2009 Hi,this is my first message on this forum. I hope my questions have not been answered yet. I searched and could not find any information, I swear! I invented the following story: John creates a torrent without a tracker. So he is the DHT bootstrap. When Jack adds this torrent to his bittorrent client, he connects to the bootstrap (John) and start downloading. When Paul adds this torrent to his bittorrent client, he connects to the bootstrap (John), and John gives him the address of Jack so he can start downloading from two sources. Etc, etc…Am I correct with this little story, or did I misunderstand something?Now what happens if the bootstrap (John) dies? I think Jack and Paul can continue to exchange data. Am I still correct? But what about new comers? Can they reach Jack or Paul? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
