General Question about torrents

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

 

If you download a torrent file but it never starts (i.e. just says connecting) do you still get logged as download the file in the bittorent swarm?

 

Cheers.

That's up to how the client connectes; but in short, yes.

The second you connect you'll be a part of the swarm untill its maximum members cycles through and you get pushed off the bottom of it (or phone your ISP and request an IP change, I get 10 a year free)

 

If it says connecting and COULDNT reach the tracker, then obviously not, but if the client just stays at 'connecting' until it goes to 'downloading' then yes, you'll be listed.
