BitTorrent - Working and Types

I would like to hear from you readers that what you think about BitTorrent or simply the term Torrent. BitTorrent is a protocol supporting the practice of peer-to-peer file sharing that is used to distribute large amounts of data over the Internet. BitTorrent is one of the most common protocols for transferring large files and peer-to-peer networks. Programmer Bram Cohen designed the protocol in April 2001 and released the first available version on July 2, 2001, and the final version in 2008. BitTorrent clients are available for a variety of computing platforms and operating systems including an official client released by BitTorrent, Inc. Following mentioned are different client softwares for BitTorrent.
  • uTorrent: This is the best you can find from web for using the mentioned P2P protocol in order to download files quickly than usual. This software is available for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android.
  • BitTorrent Sync: BitTorrent is a service, which helps you to synchronize your files between various devices. This personal site is also using P2P Technology without interrupting your privacy.
  • File Bundles: This is the place, where you can see the legal phase of BitTorrent. File Bundles are sets of 100% legal files you can download via P2P technology.
We cannot compare BitTorrent as a tool for performing piracy. Many people use this as a tool for downloading recently released movies but this is not BitTorrent is meant for. BitTorrent is useful for peer to peer exchanges, so it wrong it to compare it with a Piracy Component.


Users find a torrent of interest, by browsing the web or by other means, download it, and open it with a BitTorrent client. The client connects to the tracker(s) specified in the torrent file, from which it receives a list of peers currently transferring pieces of the file(s) specified in the torrent. The client connects to those peers to obtain the various pieces. If the swarm contains only the initial seeder, the client connects directly to it and begins to request pieces.
Clients incorporate mechanisms to optimize their download and upload rates; for example they download pieces in a random order to increase the opportunity to exchange data, which is only possible if two peers have different pieces of the file.


After reading this article, we can conclude that BitTorrent can be used as a solution for Peer to Peer File exchange and we cannot compare this one to software or movie piracy.
