What is a BitTorrent
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BitTorrent

Beginners guide
http://www.dessent.net/btfaq

My recommended clients
http://azureus.sf.net
- Full featured. Uses Java and can be a bit heavy on resource usage.

http://www.utorrent.com/
- Good amount of features. Program itself is less than 200 KB and has a very light resource footprint.

Important Notes
1) Make sure you limit the upload speed to about 70% of your max upload speed. If you do this you will be able to download at max possible speed while you are leeching the torrent (download needs upload bandwidth). Also, you can seed and surf the web without lag!
2) Make sure you setup the port properly if behind a router/firewall. There is info on the guide about doing this (http://dessent.net/btfaq/#ports).
3) When you are done downloading you should help seed. To do this just leave the bitTorrent program open after the download is complete. Whenever you are not playing PR and just surfing the web you should just leave it open. It's generally good 'netiquette' to seed until your ratio is at least 1.

New users may want to test with the current 0.322 full client just to make sure they are ready for the new 0.4 version.

Please post any questions or trouble you have with BitTorrent.

Happy Downloading!

your swell, and so is utorrent, its super spiffy, however, in the latest version they removed where you can limit your upload speed. Its all in proportion to your overall line speed. So if you have a 10mb downstream, it will auto select your max upload speed. I dont know if there is a trick around that besides setting your downspeed lower. Anyone know?

Actually thats not a bad feature for new comers to bitTorrent. But a "power user" should have the option to override that. I know Azureus has an Auto setting for upload that changes automatically based on your traffic.

Hm.. I know Azureus added that as an option, as well.

But with Azureus, you can definitely still specify an absolute limit for the upstream.

Use Netlimiter to cap your up and down streams. Every serious torrent user knows about Netlimiter, it helps to be able to cap the speeds so you can pass someone a file briefly in a messenger client, then uncap afterwards. Or to cap so you can game online for a bit (but obviously, you also need to run the torrent on a slave drive whilst gaming off the master drive as simultaneous access to a single drive causes game lagging)

Just get the Opera web browser, It has integrated Bittorrent managers and downloaders.

Your latest version of uTorrent is 1.6 or the beta with the webUI?
