KTorrent Authentication Failures

Post by parityboy » Thu May 17, 2018 7:04 pm

This is something which is probably not specific to KTorrent. In the logs I repeatedly see the following:

Code: Select all

Authentication to 84.16.240.48 : failure
84.16.240.48 is the IP address for linux-frankfurt.cryptostorm.net. Can I assume that there is another peer that my peer is trying to connect to and is also sitting on the same exit node? Is my peer trying to connect to itself?

Has anyone else seen this kind of behaviour with other torrent software?
