Identify new Xunlei versions by peerid and "v" in extension handshake


Recommended Posts

Recent Xunlei versions use Azureus style peer IDs with prefix -SD0100-. In the extension handshake message, the "v" entry is set to the version number, e.g. or Even though BEP0010 states that the "v" entry should contain "Client name and version (as a utf-8 string)", Xunlei does not include its name in the "v" field.


As a result, uTorrent only shows the version number for Xunlei clients, without a "Xunlei" prefix.


My feature request is to correctly identify Xunlei clients.
