            How to do lookups/get DHT data using the browser
            Asked 2021-Jan-19 at 12:21

            I have the following working in node.js to do a basic DHT put and get. I can later retrieve the same DHT by using only the get method and passing in the previously created infohash. What I would like to do next is look up that DHT in the browser, but I'm not having any success with browserification. Are there any libraries for the browser out there that can read DHT data by looking up an infohash?

            The bittorrent DHT requires plain UDP sockets to work. Currently there are no web APIs that provide that, thus it cannot be implemented in web pages.



            How does DHT torrent indexing sites scrape infoHashes efficiently?
            Asked 2020-Oct-04 at 16:25

            I am interested how DHT torrent indexing site works. I have working scraper of inhoHashes written using nodejs lib. At first time I tried to execute behind NAT, but it was not efficient, then I went to BSD server with public IP and things are really better. In many publications about this topic, I have learnt that best solution is to run several virtual DHT nodes to scrape infoHashes faster. I have code which initiate several DHT nodes instances runned with unique NODEID and on own port.

            My nodejs code:

            If above statement is true does it mean, that my 10 node DHT instances will be considered as DoS attack and can I be penalized somehow?

            That depends on the quality of implementation of the other nodes in the network. Advanced implementations will implement various sanitizing strategies to keep their routing tables free from malicious peers. One of those strategies is to only allow one routing table entry per IP address.

            If that is true, how then those websites (DHT torrent indexing site) deal with this problem?

            They may operate malicious nodes that try to get into more routing tables than a normal node would, but that is countered by above-mentioned sanitizing strategies, thus an unreliable (and harmful to the ecosystem) strategy. They can also operate from multiple IP addresses as mentioned in your quote.

            Is there any possibility to run efficient infoHash scraper with one public IP on one server?

            BEP 51 enables efficient indexing from a single host.
