Proxy server????

Post by psicobra » Sun Oct 17, 2010 10:28 pm

Hi i have setup transmission to use a proxy server and as far as i can tell it's working but how do i tell? is there any way of testing to make sure it is using the proxy server? would it just now download if the proxy server details were wrong?

thanks

You do realise that the proxy server will only be used for communicating with trackers? DHT traffic and data transfer will still happen over direct connections. (If your goal is to improve your privacy, then you're not going to achieve anything this way.)

tcpdump -n -s 1500 -X host 1.2.3.4

where 1.2.3.4 is replaced with the address of the proxy server.

Yes, it would -- the DHT would kick in.
