"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?

Do you have the full request there for the example?

I was wrong. Apparently Wireshark truncates the request displayed and I didn't see it. Copying of the full URI indeed shows the ip field.

Thank you!
