• This subforum is meant for documenting the behavior of BitTorrent clients when communicating with the tracker and peers (e.g. announce structure, peer_id and key algorithm, etc.), in hopes that it may provide useful to those who want to create their own client files for any program.

  • Do not request clients to be posted here, or start any sort of unrelated discussions. Use the thread belonging to the corresponding program for those purposes.

  • You must have at least 30 posts to create a thread. This is a minimum margin of safety meant to prevent spam and ensure only those with enough knowledge can post documentation. It does not apply to regular posts.

  • Threads should be named simply after the client they're meant to document (e.g. "uTorrent", "qBittorrent", "Deluge"). Version-specific details can be elaborated within.

Have fun!
