Hey all, I have a simple question.

I currently do not have any peers in my Bitcoin Client, yet when I open Process Hacker 2 we see that Bitcoin-qt.exe is sending and receiving information over the internet.


If I have no peers, who am I getting this information from?


Bonus Question: What information am I sending and receiving?

You also can use search engine and add nodes IP manually with -addnode=<ip>

Handshakes

It's the method to establish connection between 2 nodes. Both local and remote nodes send and receive version and verack information.
Click the url if you want to know the details. But few things that you should look are version, services, socket (IP:port), user_agent, nonce & start_height

You can use wireshark to verify the traffic on the port 8333.

https://www.wireshark.org/

That way you will get the information about what kind of connection is making your client, and what information is sending and receiving.
