Exclamation Torrent Seeding. Fedora Core 5 Dedicated Server.


Well, i host a Fedora Core 5 box at my dads, I connect to it via SSH and FTP, He lives far away from me so i dont visit him much.

I was wondering, Is there any way i could Seed torrents on my Dedi so the DL/Upload speeds would be quicker?

I have got a few torrents on my dedi allready, But i don't know how i'd seed them.

Thanks,
Jordan.

It's really as simple as leaving the dedicated host turned on...I mean, once it's turned on, and everything's rockin', it shouldn't require more than the necessary power and networking cables; it should just hum away in the corner.

Torrents use HTTP by default, to transfer the data (and seed).

I'm not going to lie, I don't quite understand what you're wanting to do, here.

If you want to change the networking protocol that your torrent box uses, good luck. The main problem here, is that your torrent box still has to report to a tracker, for statistics and such. Every public (and private) tracker out there, uses the HTTP protocol as its main means of communication with the rest of the world. Hence, I'm pretty sure every torrent client out there only uses HTTP to send/receive information.

If you are trying to stay anonymous in all of your torrent downloadings, or maintain secure transfers between your PC and your torrent box, check out Tor.
