use of DHT in utorrent

Recommended Posts

Hi,

what exactly is the DHT in utorrent used for? I have some 60 dht nodes connected to me, but I dont see any use of them unlike azeurus where you can search and download from the DHT peers.

Thank you.

It's used to find peers, as well as download the torrent when you add a magnet link. It does this automatically.

Hi,

Thanks for all your replies. I am in a college LAN and usually I am not connected to more than 50-60 nodes. Is this a problem? We have excellent internet connectivity by the way

Thank you.

Hi,

I am in a college LAN and i cant portforwarding. But still, i have this tv show seeding and my roommate is trying to download it, but he cant find any seeds. And i am sitting right next to him. Our both computers are connected through a switch. And also i have 0 nodes in DHT. Why can"t my roommate dowload from me?

Right-click in Peers window/tab, add peer, put in his ip:port like this:

192.168.0.150:55001

(assuming his ip is 192.168.0.150 and his port is 55001)
