[Feature Request] - Peers Tab Extended Info

by Guest on 2021/03/26 06:29:55 AM    
Hi Tixati Devs,

At the moment tixati Peers tab in:
TRANSFERS > Select a torrent > PEERS tab

Latest version shows this:

Address | Link | Flag | Location | Client | Source | Bytes In | Out | Progress % | Status | (etc)


Please can I request:

1) ADDITIONAL Address DNS resolved column after IP address
2) ADDITIONAL Custom ISP Name lookup
3) ADDITIONAL Custom ISP Type lookup (Cable/Fiber/ADSL/VPS/Hosting/VPN)

so, the column header in Tixati Peers (of a download/seed) would look like:


Address | DNS           | ISP-Name  | ISP-Type          | Link | Flag | IPLocation    | Client | Source | Bytes In | Out | Progress % | Status | (etc)

Some ISP's have HUGE ranges so making list wont be easy but a hobbyist user like myself might add tables for their own country or popular ones.

I know there are a lot of more important things to consider first - I'm just wanted to make Tixati even more fun to use for advanced users.

Host resolver column would be cool really, but need be optional, because of possible cpu use

I think the privacy disadvantages of this feature (including dns requests for all your peers) outweigh the coolness factor.

Hey guest (thread starter). This is off-topic, but I think I know what you are trying to do. Please contact me on the 'Tixati User Group' channel, maybe we can collaborate together.

I agree with the last response, DNS queries leave many more trails across the chain and is easily logged. If you look up IPs, for a similar reason, erase the last number: 192.168.13.37 -> 192.168.13.0, it will be essentially the same result in 99.9% of cases, without giving up who you were interested in.
