I am filesharing from home using a BitTorrent client in one of three scenarios:
- I am using my regular ISP connection
- I am using a tunnel (VPN) connection
- I am using a Tor connection (a)
Obviously I expose my home IP address in scenario 1, how else would my peers be able to share with me? But I have this notion (citation needed) that even in scenarios 2 and 3, the way the BitTorrent protocol works means that it exposes my home IP address anyway. Is this true?
(a) Do not do this.
