SSH, SOCKS5 tunnel, Bittorrent anon.?

I've been using a serivce (proxy.darknet.com) who offer secure SSH tunnel and socks proxies.

This obviously makes browsing anonymous but can I use to to make bittorrent anonymous to the peers in the swarm?

First I set up an SSH tunnel using Putty and then set up uTorrent to use the socks5 proxy tunneling via SSH. After reading a few docs I've got it "working" int he sense that the SSH client is running fine and all appears to be working and I can certainly download. But am I anonymous to everyone in the torrent? Are they getting darknet's IP instead of mine?

Is it operating in a similar way to a private VPN, like say Relakks?

And how could I test this if I wanted to? With a web proxy I can just go to Shields up or whatever and see what they can tell about me. With BT it's harder since I don't get to see my own IP anywhere to to check.

You are never anonymous.
Every server keeps logs. Your ISP keeps logs. You can be found, if they want you bad enough.
