We need help with Bittorrent

Postby Chris » Fri Oct 19, 2012 11:58 am

We would very much like to speak to someone here who has expert knowledge and experience of bittorrent. If that applies to you please email chris@introversion.co.uk.

Edit: Specifically, successfully uploading / seeding / listing torrent files.

Are you talking of how to download/upload using torrents, how the torrent community works, how the protocol works...? A bit more information would be helpful, if only to narrow down your applicants.

Yes agreed I have setup bittorrent servers in the past, but need more information about what you are after.

Chris really wants to see the new James Bond film, but can't afford to go to the cinema? :P

Yeah. Would be useful. People might be great at creating torrent files, but not have a clue how to run a tracker.

Given torrents Chris (I think?) created for [REDACTED] and [REDACTED], I suspect it's more for tracker set up.

I know it's not quite what you're asking for, but if you need some seeders for torrents that will get used by PA, I do have a seed box that's sitting on a 100Mbs connection. If/when you have a tracker set up, make sure there's an RSS feed on it and I can auto download every torrent and host it for as long as needed.

Without knowing more I could be totally off here but instead of going to the effort of hosting/maintaining trackers etc. you can use bittorrent to download files from S3 instead.

I once downloaded a World of Warcraft patch via torrent.
Not sure if that's what you are after though. :-D

Chris,

I have sent you an email as I use bittorrent extensively every day.

May I ask why you don't simply read the official bittorrent protocol? It's not very complicated :)
