Adding torrents with the same info hash

Postby Masterjuggler » Thu Jun 08, 2017 11:57 pm

I use a few different private trackers and have the ability to cross-seed. This is normally not a problem because either the files or directories are named differently, but when the names and content are exactly the same (e.g. when a torrent is created by me to upload to another private tracker), deluge does not allow the same info hash to have multiple entries. I can't just add an extra tracker to these entries due to the nature of private trackers.

Is there currently any way around this? Is it at least being worked on for 2.0? If not, can I request such a feature?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Masterjuggler

If hash and block size are the same, why can't you add the second tracker (for my info)? How can the private tracker detect it?
BTW if multiple tracker needs a change to be functionnal (look for ltconfig plugin)

There is a detailed discussion on qbittorrent:

and libtorrent mailing list: ... /34078917/

The upshot is no, unless libtorrent ever supports it...
