P2P (Bittorrent etc) configuration & use discussion...ongoing (Only place to post!)

Follwoing on from this thread http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showt...p?t=2055132322

I thought it was time to unstick the above thread and create a new thread to allow people to discuss use and configuration of bittorrent and other P2P programs on their Broadband connection it doesn't matter if its wireless, adsl or cable.

Remember to keep within the Broadband forum charter when it comes to discussing torrent sources (for example legal content only)

Using limewire

I assume it is legal content you are getting from limewire?
using such an unsecure protocal for anything sensitive would be extremely ill advised.
Google bittorrent and use it instead.

Still not as fast cos you're depending on other people's upload speeds.

You'll find that on private sites many people have their own dedicated servers.

So instead of using their cable or dsl connection they'll be 10Mbps, 100Mbps or 1000Mbps Uplinks....very easy max out your line with bittorrent on a private site.

I have access to torrentleech but I find rapidshare quicker. Buffering torrents does not compensate for not having the infrastructure of a major company like Rapidshare.

Its only a matter of time before Rapidshare is killed off, at the end of the day are they not physically hosting files and accepting money from people to provide these services.

Seems rather suspect and I don't think it'll be long before the MPAA come knocking

RS.com will last for another 2 years at least. After that, I'll be going back to FTP's, and a few private torrent sites. The only problem with private torrent sites is getting into one that isn't looking for members. I've found those that look for members are usually stalek, and trying to get seeders in, but the site dies soon afterwards

Rapidshare is good for speed, and if you know how to use the search function, you'll find what you're looking for. Getting a film in 40 minutes from RS, whilst 3 people are bitching about their torrent speeds on IRC is always fun.

What do you mean? They are hosting files.

Rapidshare does not break any rules. Content providers such as Rapidshare must be provided with a take-down notice if copywrited content is uploaded by users. This is enshrined in national and international copyright law.
