DHT Bootstrap nodes

Post by SureElk6 » Wed Aug 07, 2019 6:47 am

I am currently testing IPv6 support for BitTorrent noticed that only one of DHT bootstrap nodes works.

I used test_dht.py of https://github.com/bittorrent/bootstrap-dht to test.

dht.transmissionbt.com has the following IP addresses

Code: Select all

2001:41d0:c:5ac:5::1
87.98.162.88
212.129.33.59
Both 2001:41d0:c:5ac:5::1 and 87.98.162.88 which seems to be on the same VM(based on PTR), time outs.

Only 212.129.33.59 works.

Since there is no working Bootstrap nodes for IPv6, on IPv6 only connections DHT completely fails.
