How does DHT + SOCKS 5 proxy actually work?


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to know exactly how DHT works when i use a proxy server (set to route all traffic over it).

When i use this proxy without DHT, i can see that utorrent only connects to the proxy and is keeping my IP private. But with DHT there are all kinds of connections to different IPs (not over the proxy!)!

Is this supposed to be like this? Do these DHT-connections transport actual data or is it only used for the torrent hash info etc ?

As you can imagine, i was a little irritated to see utorrent connecting everywhere and NOT using the proxy i configured. Why is that?

Its a privacy concern for me and the other users who have configured a proxy...
