Is it necessary to use a tracker?

Post by CULO »

Is it necessary to use a tracker to make a functional I2P torrent? :?:

Apology my ignorance, but maybe the torrent system has some differences in I2P.

Can I create a I2PSnark torrent and make it work without using a tracker? Would it work?

Thank you!

I2PSnark has a DHT implementation which allows for torrents to work without a tracker defined. Any clients trying to download/seed the torrent would need to have DHT peers in order for this to work, e.g. through downloading a popular torrent like http://tracker2.postman.i2p/details.php ... %c2Y%a8yGt this one, i2pupdate-0.9.37.su3
