Lots of peers in Local Peer Discovery.


Recommended Posts

Quick question: From the little I've been able to find on the topic, it seems that Local Peer Discovery is supposed to search for peers on your local network (that is, behind your router). I have four computers behind my router, yet I'm downloading a torrent that claims LPD has found 2 seeds and 43 peers. How is this possible? Is this a bug, or am I just missing something?

Thanks in advance for the help!

Sorry I wasn't more specific. I'm talking about the "Local Peer Discovery" entry in the trackers tab:


There are only 10 local peers in that pic, but last night I was seeing quite a few more peers and a couple of seeds too.

None of the peers I was connected to had the L flag set. At first, I thought it was because there were a lot of peers on that torrent and I just happened to not be connected to any that were local. But after some searching, I got the impression that "local peers" are supposed to be behind my router and I started thinking the "Local Peer Discovery" entry in the tracker section was/is just plain wrong.

Any ideas?
