Note that these Foxy-Hub IPs can also be injected by malfunctioning GWCs or other bootstrapping scripts/hosts that mix the Foxy network with either gnutella and/or G2.
Thanks for the reply. So what you actually say is that Foxy client is able to connect to G2 ultrapeer and perform seraches even if it does not reply with challenge/response?
