    Bittorent Site Files

    I just downloaded the LNM zip file and I wondered how hard/worth it it would be to use Bittorrent tracker thingies to spread files like this around.

    I thought it would come in useful for maybe spreading any VMWare images that we might concoct up as well.

    I have no idea in whats involved in setting up trackers (I'm just a USA TV downloader type myself) and whether it would be practical to do it.

    What do the site mods/torrent experts think?

    regards

    Simon

    Most LEA/instituational firewalls block bittorrent traffic.

    Re: Bittorent Site Files

    I was thinking more about files hosted on our own machines - we shouldn't be using any work resources here , should we

    It just seemed like a furtheration of the share and enjoy culture we have here.

    If its practical and someone knows how to set up a tracker then we could try it out and see what happens
