Ghost Peers


Recommended Posts

I read somewhere that uTorrent had a bug that showed your own IP address in your peer list for the initial few minutes, when a new torrent is added.

When I saw my own IP in the peer list, I thought it was a bug too. But, for every torrent and for the whole course of download, my IP stays there---and surprisingly, with different torrent clients from now and then

(one minute its BitTorrent, the other its BitComet) and with different %completions.

All these doesn't hamper my download speed, and maybe its just a normal mechanism for uTorrent to operate but

just for the sake of it, can anyone kindly explain it to me as to how all this works :D
