Bad peers in Peers window of Torrent Inspector

Postby kovalev » Wed Jun 02, 2010 5:47 pm

In current versions of Transmission GTK (up to 1.93), there is no indication of the presence of active peers throwing in bad data. If I have understood correctly, such a peer, upon receiving of several bad chunks, will simply have get banned some way (either temporary or permanently through the blocklist) and thus disappeared from the peer list of Torrent Inspector. Outlining it in a Torrent Inspector peer list (by a different colour or displaying a number of bad chunks received in detailed view) would give customers an additional level of control over their connections. It might be even worth it to dump these peers to a local blocklist, with full access to its content from Transmission.
