#5127 closed Enhancement (invalid)

Allow enable/disable of DHT & Peer Exchange on a per-torrent basis

Reported by: k65 Owned by:

Component: Transmission Version: 2.73
Severity: Normal Keywords:


Many private torrent sites require its users to disable DHT & Peer Exchange to retain privacy of its torrents. Failure to do so often results in a banning of the user.

However, DHT & Peer Exchange come in handy when dealing with public trackers.

Since many users are likely to simultaneously run torrents from both public and private trackers, it would be nice if Transmission allowed the enabling/disabling of DHT & Peer Exchange on a per-torrent basis (instead of global settings as it current is implemented).

Thank you!

PS: See uTorrent for an example of this (click properties on any torrent that's been added)

  • Status changed from new to closed

Transmission respects the "private" flag of torrents, which limits how we connect to peers. When this flag is set, PEX, DHT, and local peer discovery are disabled.
