Add "resolve name" option

Postby Denis Cheremisov » Sun Feb 15, 2009 10:57 am

Hi!
Sometimes it's useful to know not ip address, but host dns name. It would be wonderful to have an option to show dns names instead of ip addresses.

Hello,

I agree, it's really important and actually i can't use it because of DNS leak without this feature.

Thanks in advance to add this option

my best

I have a preliminary version of a patch for this i wrote quite a bit of time ago, but andar didn't want to include such a feature in Deluge.. So.. For now i can only show that patch, its in attach.. Its for quite a bit of out of date svn version of Deluge, so maybe it'll not apply well now.. If quite a bit of people will have interests in this - maybe i can make a plugin with this or andar can change his mind about including this feature to Deluge itself.

If we do include this feature, I think the resolving should be done on the Core side so all UIs could benefit without having to do their own lookups. Also, we should use Twisted's DNS functions to handle this.

You can just go to the folder where you already have deluge installed, find peers_tab.py, put that patch there and do

patch -p3 < reverse-dns-peer-ip-lookups.patch

It still patches quite okay but i dunno whether it still works..

No, it doesn't. Deluge crashes after few minutes with this patch. Any news on developing this feature?

Is there any ticket filled on this?

Thanks for your patch! It's very useful function. How does the core keep peer-list now? In IPs or in resolve names?
I think in IPs... but may be it only shows IPs and keep in resolve names... Sorry for my poor english :)
And if core keep peer-list in IPs, than users lose many peers after restarting through some hours when many other users (peers) reloaded their own computers because many people use Dynamic DNS.

I hope that you understood me :) and hope that this function will be in new version of Deluge.

I understand this thread is old so please excuse me in that regard as I'm new here and to deluge altogether. I'm a pretty uneducated win user and was curious if you, plisk, or anyone else may be able to help me make use of this patch in an XP environment? Or given how old this thread is has this perhaps been already made into a plugin? Thanks for your time and effort here, as well as everyone else who has contributed to bring this project to the point it's at now.
