How to encrypt and be sure it is encrypt ?

Postby Transminux » Fri Jan 13, 2012 6:06 pm

Hello everyone !
first of all, sorry for my english I'm french... nobody's perfect :mrgreen:

I'm loocking over internet for some days to encrypt transmission 2.33.
I've found some answers but they are for versions less than 2.33.

I've been in preferences >> confidentiality
then in encryption mode >> I've got autorized encryption, prefered encryption, required encryption (wich one do I have to choose ?)
I've selected PEX and DHT to find more peers.
is that right ?

hox do I know if all exchanges are encrypted ? how can I bee anonymous with Transmission ?

Thanks for your help.

Transmission 2.33 on Xubuntu 11.10.

best = required encryption

I've selected PEX and DHT to find more peers.

Oui.

hox do I know if all exchanges are encrypted ?

Encryption is for peer communication only.

how can I bee anonymous with Transmission ?

Total anonymity is impossible. Many find VPN services useful.

Oui.


Your french is perfect :mrgreen:

Thank you for your answers !

I know I insist a little bit ^^ but if the encryption is set to required encryption I'm sure that all exchanges (peers :oops: ) are encrypted ?

thanks to help a paranoïd man :D

Peer to peer communication, yes, but not trackers and DHT. Actually I'm not 100% sure about DHT, so maybe someone else will provide a definite answer.
