Private Bittorrent network


Overclocked Like A Mother
Hi Guys,

I would like to know if it possible to setup a private bittorrent network. Maybe something that someone needs to type in a password to join. Certainly something that won't come up in search engines, as these are my own private files/pics. I have a genereal idea of how Bittorrent works, but nothing concrete.

Can this be done?

Yes. You can make it so that the tracker will not connect unless the person is registered. I don't know the details on how this is accomplished, but I do know it can be done.

Why torrent?

I am just curious, as a personal file server, with users set up individually and modern DSL speeds, is fast. (I did it from my home computer once)

What you'd want is a tracker based on the TorrentBits code. Many of the best private trackers I've used like TorrentBits, Elitetorrents, and a couple others that don't advertise themselves use it.

It's funny. Searching on google for "torrentbits tracker" gives an OSNN thread as it's first hit.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
