PEX - is there a bug with IPv6


Recommended Posts

uTorrent 1.8.3 beta (build 15358)

I have been seeding a torrent with Enable DHT, Peer Exchange, Local Peer Discovery - all they OFF (private).

I have Enable Peer Exchange, Enable DHT Network, Enable Local Peer Discovery all they OFF in Preferences/BitTorrent.

And still I had peers marked with the flag X. They all had IPv6.

So, what is this? If not a bug how to prevent PEX?

Edit: I have seen peers with IPv4 address also.

I'm seeing this in 1.9 15380 as well sort of.

I Have torrents on a private tracker that is not IPv6 capable at all, yet I still get some ipv6 peers (in one case noticed they were all uT 1.8.2) that had the the flags of U XEP and u IXE

should be looked into.

Let me know if you need any more info.

Edit: BTW in my case I do have DHT, Peer Exchange and Local Peer Discovery on, but the torrent itself was mark private and showing all three as "not allowed" with seeds and peers as 0.
