Weeks ago, i wanted to download some files from megaupload. But computer that i used only accept ssh.

Do you like watching movies? If you like watching movies, sometimes you will need to download your favourite movies from the internet. Many sites offer movie download, like rapidshare, megaupload, etc. But sometimes it’s annoying when download movie from those site. Especially if they limit your download (e.g max connection, max speed, etc). It’s very annoying for me 😀

So there is an alternative for people like me. It’s is torrent. With torrent, you and other people outside there can share their collection on the internet. So the other people can download it from many sources. The protocol (BitTorrent) works initially when a file provider makes his file (or group of files) available to the network. This is called a seed and allows others, named peers, to connect and download the file. Each peer that downloads a part of the data makes it available to other peers to download. After the file is successfully downloaded by a peer, many continue to make the data available, becoming additional seeds. This distributed nature of BitTorrent leads to a viral spreading of a file throughout peers. As more seeds get added, the likelihood of a successful connection increases exponentially. Relative to standard Internet hosting, this provides a significant reduction in the original distributor’s hardware and bandwidth resource costs. It also provides redundancy against system problems and reduces dependence on the original distributor.

Okay, enough with torrent definition, now i’ll tell you that torrent client is avalaible in almost every OS. In linux, it has many torrent client like Vuze, Bittorrent, etc. To use it, it’s simple. First, you must download torrent file (file with extension torrent) from websites like mininova, isohunt, or maybe tokyotosho.

After you downloaded the file with extension torrent,  open the torrent client, for example vuze. And open the file with extension torrent from your Vuze.  After that, usually vuze will start searching for seeders and download your file from those seeders. Not just that, when you downloading, you also upload some downloaded part of your files to other peers. So watch your step when you use dial up connection.
