Does DHT expose my real IP in anonymous mode?
« on: October 12, 2018, 10:23:36 PM »
Hi,

I have a VPN tunnel to another country that supports TCP without any problems. UDP packets are not tunnelled.
When I enable the anonymous mode in QBittorent and send the peer data through the tunnnel,
does the untunneled DHT publish my real IP address, so I am no longer anonymous?

The documentation at this point is not accurate enough.
https://github.com/qbittorrent/qBittorrent/wiki/Anonymous-Mode

In the appendix are screenshots of my settings.

You're at least partially expose. As soon as you're UDP makes a connection, the other side knows you're IP because that's how else could the other side respond.
