"IP/Hostname to report" not shown in tracker REQUEST?


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I have set the "IP/Hostname to report to tracker" field, I then start Wireshark followed by uTorrent. I would expect that IP be part the tracker REQUEST, as specified in the bittorrent protocol (http://www.bittorrent.org/beps/bep_0003.html#trackers).

However, looking at the Wireshark trace of tracker announce REQUESTs, I can't find the IP specified in the "IP/Hostname to report" field.

Was my assumption incorrect? If so, how and where would that IP be made available to the trackers?
