I just started using pcapy python module to capture network packets. Is it possible to capture packets going out from uTorrent (on my own machine) with pcapy or scapy and sending them over the TOR network? And after receiving the response packets, direct them to uTorrent?

If it is possible, then what are the work arounds?

    Torrent traffic is still a large load on the TOR network, please don't do it. – Shelvacu Mar 2 '15 at 4:46
  • This isn't an InfoSec question but a pcapy or scapy programming question. – schroeder Mar 2 '15 at 6:28
  • I'm not making a commercial product and @schroeder I'm not asking for code. What I saying is "In theory is it possible to send those packets over TOR and direct them back to client? Because Torrent is based on a peer to peer network ( not usual Server Client connection) " – eMad Mar 2 '15 at 6:51
