Torrent downloading without connecting to a tracker or dht/pex/lsd #10131
Tracker not working at the moment doesn't mean it didn't work once earlier. It only takes once for the ip:port of your peer to "leak out" to other peers/seeds.
It's also possible to manually add ip:port to the Peers window and possibly connect that way, but obviously that requires quite a bit of inside knowledge. I use that with trackerless testing torrents for checking speeds and bugs in qBitTorrent and other BitTorrent clients.
