Rather late, but as suggested in the comments, the following produces a magnet link, with no further fiddling necessary: transmission-show -m yourfiles.torrent This program is shipped as part of the transmission-cli package on Debian derivatives, and part of the larger Transmission client. Of course the .torrent file must be created beforehand, but that ...

I am surprised no one answered this. Yes this is possible, there are a couple ways of achieving what you are trying to do. in my experience, when you do this with roommates who are splitting costs with you, you end up being viewed as an internet connection dictator. There are three ways to do this. Content filtering - This would block all P2P on the ...

Can peers in p2p locate each other without a tracker? Yes and No. No because: The standard BitTorrent technology do uses a tracker for each peer to 'report' back to so they can be found by other peers. Once they found each other, they can then go directly peer to peer and ignores the tracker. Yes because: If you read the specification on BitTorrent ...

Taken from "About Freenet" and bolded items are quoted and is your answer: Users contribute to the network by giving bandwidth and a portion of their hard drive (called the "data store") for storing files. Files are automatically kept or deleted depending on how popular they are, with the least popular being discarded to make way for newer or more popular ...

It's not that easy. Emule used to use port 4662 for TCP and 4672 for UDP connections. They as well as all other p2p-based programs including torrent clients have since then started to use automatic port assignment to make it harder to block traffic. Furthermore, both emule and torrents have been using protocol encryption for years now, making it even harder ...

As cybernard said, a VPN will get round this (I differ with him here in as much as its almost impossible to block a VPN - OpenVPN can, among many other configurations, can use port 80 tcp (ie http) and port 443 (https). I'm pretty sure this is going to fall on deaf ears (Ah to be young !!!), but you should seriously consider not trying to bypass the ...

"Peer-to-peer" really means any node, or peer, can act as either a client or server in some capacity. So things that work in such a fashion don't require a single central node to work. Peers must know the IP addresses of other peers to successfully do whatever the peer-to-peer protocol is trying to accomplish. So some type of discovery mechanism or ...

For the most simple p2p connections one of the two sides of the connection must have port forwarding (be it uPnP or manual setup) for a p2p connection to be established. After that you just talk to the IP of the router that has port forwarding set up, then it forwards those packets to the computer that acts as the "server" in the p2p connection (the "...

I think the distinction between them is quite difficult since an adhoc network could grow into a mesh network. Ad hoc : simply infrastructure-less type of network(no dedicate Access points or predetemined infrastructure) that is meant to serve any purpose, and they are built spontaneously. these type of networks are simple and could be set easily. common ...

How do I edit the quantity of downloads? By default, Vuze allows you to perform a maximum of 5 simultaneous downloads. To increase this value: Open Vuze > Click on the Tools Menu > Options Select the "Queue" tab In the right pane next change the values in the following fields: Max simultaneous downloads Max active ...

If you configure your system correctly, no, at least not definitively. the traffic passing through their system will be fully encrypted (including header data), so they cannot read the data. there are still several attacks based on patterns of data transmission and reception that could give them hints as to what you are doing with your connection (timing of ...

If they don't block them a vpn to someone else or a proxy server. However,p2p, is high volume traffic and they will probably detect it and you will get in trouble. Suggestions: http://proxpn.com/

Yes. Suppose your network looks like this: You want to SSH from A to B. You have sshd running on B; it is listening on on tcp://127.0.0.1:22. B$ pwnat -s 0.0.0.0 2022 127.0.0.1:22 pwnat on B is now listening on udp://0.0.0.0:2022 and is configured to allow connections to tcp://127.0.0.1:22. It is also sending periodic ICMP echo requests to 3.3.3.3 (...

What is the difference between a p2p network and a mesh network? Reference Mesh Networks: Definition "Mesh networks - are highly distributed networks which use special routing technology. In standard routing technology as used to send and receive information via the internet the 'routes' which data packets take are fixed. In mesh networks the ...

There are 2 different meanings of P2P, and you seem to be getting confused. P2P can mean Point to Point - as is the case with a VPN client like OpenVPN or PPTP. These connections occur directly - and only between 2 devices. It can also mean Peer to Peer, as in the case of bit torrent etc, where there is a web of connections. The rest of this post deals ...

I presume you are asking about splitting the (usually large) file that a .torrent file describes. If your purpose is downloading the file from a single seeder in a shorter period of time, then BitTorrent protocol already does it for you. It uses segmented file transfer and if you and your friend connect at the same time, your clients will download different ...

There is a difference between "working at all" and "works well". In P2P networks each side of a pair of nodes should be able to initiate a connection and also to accept one initiated by the other side. By default NATs make it more difficult or impossible to accept incoming connections. So without doing anything special a torrent client will still work ...

When downloading a file from a tracker in a P2P system peers announce that they are participating in sharing a particular file or set of files. The tracker doesn't need to know where that file is on the remote peer, just that it has it. When a peer contacts the tracker it is told what other peers have access to the file. The peer can then ask other peers "...

Assuming the question is about home/residential connections: Most wired ISPs do in fact give a publicly reachable IPv4 address to their customers. That address is assigned to the customer's home router, and that router can receive packets and forward them to whichever internal device the customer specifies. (It already has to do this in order to correctly ...

This is a somewhat common problem with p2p networks and NAT (used on IPv4). Due to IPv4 address exhaustion, we cannot assign a globally unique IPv4 address to every host on a network. NAT is used to work around this issue by mapping multiple addresses from a non-unique private range (RFC1918) to a single public IP address. In other words, it maps every ...

Can you browse the internet while connected to WIFI and not logged in? If it is showing no internet access, maybe it just means you can't access the internet through HTTP/HTTPs, HTTP uses TCP port 80, HTTPs uses TCP port 443, and if these ports are banned while you aren't logged in you can't browse the internet, but the fact you can download files through ...

A .torrent file is binary encoded, so you can't just parse out text from it. You would need to edit the file using a program to do it on your behalf (or I suppose you could edit the binary data by hand with a hex editor...). The .torrent data structure would allow you to divvy up the data you want to download, but only on a file boundary (eg you could not ...

Torrenting takes in mind that everyone in the swarm is seeding at least 1:1 ratio or more. Keeping that in mind, the best way is to seed as fast as you can without you having any problems with it until you reach your ratio. Reasoning behind this If the swarm is not healthy, there are only few people and thus upload is not quick anymay. They'll download ...

If FDM is not running it can't obviously upload or download anything (make sure it's really not running and not just minimized). When it's running, even if you have completed a download you will still upload, you will be a seeder. I don't think there's a way to stop uploading other than closing the software or deleting the file (note that deleting the files ...

The tracker(s) are used to get contact-info to other peers (users) that is active on a torrent. A tracker can only give you info about peers that is registered on that tracker. A peer is registered on a tracker if it has recently been in contact with it. Normally every 30 mins. A peer can also get contact-info to other peers by using DHT (distributed hash ...

VPN is your best shot, but got it for sure, they're monitoring bandwidth connections, so get for sure that if you 'hoard' all the speed, you'll get busted in no time, so if you want to do it, try some software that allow you to 'cap' your speed, so they can't suspect of you, and be smart, don't try to download a huge file in a whole batch, it will be very ...
