If a peer( peer A again) which is behind a transparent proxy connects to
tracker, then the tracker records the IP address of the proxy and the port
that the peer listening on.

Suppose peer A is configured to use the proxy for http connection. Then
another peer (peer B) can know the real IP address of peer A by just waiting
the inbound connection from peerA.

However, if peer A is now configured to use the proxy for all connection.
Then peer B just know the proxy IP by  waiting the inbound connection from
the peerA through proxy.

Can I be able to get the real ip address of peer A  if peerA is configured
to use proxy for all connection ?
Pls give me some idea
thx ~~
