Tracker request fields information


Recommended Posts

I am trying to write a bittorrent tracker as part of my project. I am using utorrent to test the tracker I am writing. I am using the details of Tracker request posted here

GET /announce?info_hash=%f66%ba%d5W%b4%df%85%b1%7d%be%efP%8ae%da%00%be%9c%3c&peer_id=-UT1820-%fd%3bqz%83f%12%db%5eK%8f9&port=42823&uploaded=0&downloaded=0&left=104857600&corrupt=0&key=1230F1E5&event=started&numwant=200&compact=1&no_peer_id=1

I have the following questions about the request which I couldnt understand from the wiki post.

1) What does "corrupt" parameter mean?

2) What is the length for the "key" parameter. Does it have a fixed length like hash_info and peer_id which is 20 bytes.

3) What is the length of "trackerid" parameter. Does it have a fixed length like hash_info and peer_id.

Any help on this is really appreciated.
