oniontor mac help, point about BitTorrent
Okay one final one ticket from me today and again apologies if I have classified this wrongly, not sure what it comes under - have been trying to figure out how to make ocat work and did a lot of reading but the contact email for requesting further help (email@example.com) seems to be gone :(( and I'm also having trouble getting the tun/tap thing to work (installer fails) and again where to go for help with these dead email addresses... can someone signpost me in the right direction? As in a contact email address that's current or some other help? Or details of any equivalent program to what OnionTor provides or provided for the Mac?
Also, and this point could be regarded as more to do with an enhancement request maybe and it kind of relates to what ocat is partly for too, but people say BitTorrent and Tor don't jive - what I've noticed though is that whilst the DHT aspect of BitTorrent doesn't seem to work (the information on where the peers are doesn't seem to go through) once that information is obtained (outside of Tor), the download itself routes through Tor just fine. I don't know all the technical ins and outs of how these things work but it seems to me there could be a way of enhancing Tor so that the list of peers from which the downloading is done, the DHT gathering process, could be found/read also..? I imagine the problem is to do with the Tor IPs and how they are resolved or something like that but I don't get how the actual downloading of the actual file itself works through it and only the initial DHT bit (where the seeders are) seems to not work and so would be curious as to the explanation for this or any further development or ideas in this regard...
