I'm certainly no expert nor have I ever used eDonkey but I'm going to adopt a basic train of thought here. If anybody could use eDonkey without their IP address being revealed don't you think a lot more people would use it?

And since there has been (as far as I know) been legal action against people using eDonkey I can only assume that your IP address is easily discerned by anybody who wants to know...but that's just as a matter of deductive logic.

It doesn't directly show your ip address, but it's not anonimus.

How many people have actually been convicted for using ED2K? All the lawsuits you hear about are Fasttrack or Gnutella.

It makes no difference if the program hides your IP with a nickname or not. Anybody connected to you can use even the command prompt to find your IP address.

If you are really concerned about ip addresses and want anonymity, there are filesharing solutions over i2p's network.
