I know this is an old thread but I just noticed it and had a question. If you're DL'ing a torrent through your PS3 connected to a router, can they ping your IP address?
I told a friend of mine about the PS3 DL'ing torrents and he went paranoid anti-gov on me and started ranting about IP address and being tracked.
Can someone help with an answer so I can shut him up?
The TorrentRelay site does the torrenting for you - so you personally arent downloading it via Torrent. All pings will go to the host and not you. You are just downloading it via the normal HTTP off the relay site.
