Re: Simple BitTorrent Tracker
I've been using transmission 1.795 and noticed practically all peers are using utorrent. Sometimes bitcomet.
As settings I have to "prefer" encrypted peers. I don't know if that can be reason I'd only see utorrent peers or if it really is the clear market leader....
Also all the torrents I've used lately have more than one tracker (mostly 4-5), I assume because they want redundancy, i.e. making sure there's always an tracker somewhere live.
The url I've used as my tracker (i.e. your extension), will that generate a lot of traffic on my shared host?
I'm interested to know if by default a host doesn't like such trackers and if they block them by default? How could I found out if my host was blocking my tracker?
