A bit info bout Torrent




Hmm. Somehow, most people dont really know much bout torrent. So, let me explain a bit bout it. I also dont know much bout it. But, i'll try to explain it.(take some facts from other source. =p. Haha!!). As far as people who use torrent concern, torrent need a seeder to allow them to download that specific file. Here a little bit explaination about all that matters in torrent.
Tracker:
  • A server that manages the Bit Torrent file transfer process. So if your downloading some file(s) off a particular tracker it would know everything, how much you've downloaded, who are you(IP Address), how many people your downloading from, etc. Think of a tracker as the father of what's going on. He know's everything.

A .torrent file:
  • A .torrent file is what you will download from a torrent search engine. This is a small file that basically points to the file you want to download, so it would contain a pointer to all the information like who to connect to, how many seeds, peers, are there for a particular file, what is it's size etc.

Seeders:
  • A seeder is someone who has a whole copy of a paricular file or set of files, and is willing to share them, i.e. is allowing you to connect with him/her. At least one seeder is necessary for any Bit Torrent download to operate.

Peers:
  • A peer is someone who has a partially downloaded file or set of files. A peer uploads information while he downloads. While it is always good to have a large number of peers for a particular download. If given an option go for a download which has a large number of seeders.

Leechers:
  • A user who is not willing to share files, just downloads files and keeps them to him/herself. Such a user should be shot in the kneecaps ... many, many times over.

Bit Torrent Client:
  • Software installed locally on your computer, that enables you to connect to a tracker, get information about a file, and hence connect to n number of users using that information, and hence download a file.
Most torrent user will use uTorrent and BitTorrent as their torrent client. For me, i use uTorrent myself. For me, im more to torrent type of guy. I usually use torrent when im at home because im using wireless connection to connect to the internet. When using a wireless connection, it sometimes can be disconnect when there's rain and a heavy wind blow. When using torrent, there no need to afraid if the connection lost of whateva. Because, the download will continue when there's a connection again. There a -ve and +ve of using torrent anyway. haha! Use this link to know more about torrent. How to use uTorrent.






And one more last thing, when u want to find a torrent file, you can use this website to find your specific file. =).


*thats all that i can help ya out with torrent. =). Have fun downloading by using torrent. (^^)
