In Detail

Transferring files has usually only ever been between two clients: a sender and a receiver. With the introduction of the BitTorrent Protocol, single file transfers can now be crowd sourced among many clients, reducing infrastructure costs for any single node.

"Instant uTorrent" is a practical, hands-on guide that provides you with a number of clear, step-by-step examples which will help you learn how to use uTorrent and how to take advantage of the underlying BitTorrent Protocol.

"Instant uTorrent" looks at uTorrent and the underlying BitTorrent Protocol: how to install it, how best to configure it, and each configuration option available.

You will also learn how to upload files to public trackers and how to download torrents using .torrent files and magnet links. You will also learn how to automate the downloading of torrents using RSS feeds and custom filters as well as how to remotely access uTorrent from over the Internet.

If you want to learn how to use uTorrent, or how to use BitTorrent to efficiently share data, then this book is for you.


Get to grips with a new technology, understand what it is and what it can do for you, and then get to work with the most important features and tasks. This book takes a practical, hands-on approach to installing and using uTorrent

Who this book is for

This book is great for tech-savvy users who are familiar with network basics and who are looking for an easy-to-follow guide to the BitTorrent technology using uTorrent as the program of choice.
