Peers list should be user-manageable

Description

The peers list is not manageable enough. I want to be able to block peers or punt them, when I limit the peer-per-torrent option sometimes I get stuck with fifty peers who arent sending me any chunks. I want to be able to force these peers to send me chunks or ignore them from the list and use the 200 others seeders available.

Why would you want to do this? It's not the intention of the BT protocol.

Replying to eisa01:

Why would you want to do this? It's not the intention of the BT protocol.

I said why I want to do this. I recently had a torrent where there was like 500 seeders. I connected to fifty peers none of them sent me pieces and therefore I couldn't upload any pieces either. I want to be able to manipulate the peer list so i don't keep getting peers that sit there and eat up my internet connection sending worthless protocol information between each other.

Ditto, I see this quite often as well, there will literally be thousands of seeds available, but I'll get stuck with the 50-60 people who aren't uploading at all, but Transmission apparently sees them as valid because they will remain there until I quit the program and restart, forcing a grab of new peers which results in at least some, if not all, new blood in my peer list and downloading can resume. This isn't a consistent behavior in that i don't notice it all the time, but apianti isn't going crazy.

  • Summary changed from Peers list should be manageable, allowing for punts, blocks, and forces. to Peers list should be user-manageable

I would also like to be able to manually add peers, allowing me to share files across a LAN easier.

Manual peer management is outside the scope of this app.
