If your concern is the security of torrents, I strongly recommend some cloud torrent service. You don´t download the torrent directly to your computer, but to the cloud instead and you have the possibility to either download the file (SSL encrypted) to your computer or stream it online later. They differ in some additional features, price, design... Here is thorough description of few of the best ones in my opinion: https://torrentproviders.com/

Tips downloading torrents


What is a torrent?


first of all it is a method of downloading absolutely anything (you name it you have it) from internet when you search for software, audio, movies you will sometimes accidental stumble up into a torrent site but when you download the file it will be a very small fie size in kilobytes but this fill contains all the file locations that a particular file resides it cold contain 1000 of users information worldwide.

How does it happen?


a person might upload a file as a torrent and that person is called a "seed" because he has 100% of the file will say another person finds this torrent and start downloading it this person is considered as a "leecher" assume he has downloaded the file about 25%, When another 3rd person starts downloading this file he can retrieve this file from both the seeder and leecher and the 3rd person will also contribute to other people so by downloading a torrent you are taking the file and *** well as you are helping to upload it to another person
When a leecher has downloaded the file 100% that person becomes a seeder

How to download


You need a torrent client to download torrent files (torrent extension is *.torrent)
Example
Utorrent-a small light weight torrent client
Azureus-a java based torrent client

What Should I look for when downloading torrents?


1. Find a good site (the hardest )


Because torrents are a popular way of spreading viruses (Trojan horse) you must be careful when you are selecting the site

My recommendations’ are
For software/movies/games/TV shows-btjunkie.com, www.mininova.com,www.isohunt.com
For high quality movies-axxo.superfundo.com

2. Download the torrent with highest number of seed not the leecher

when you do this you are on the safe side because more people have the complete file

3. Be careful when downloading torrents that contains zip or rar format

some torrents are there to fool you after downloading it requires a password witch you can’t find

4. Read all comments before downloading a torrent

this will be very help full for you before you download a big file example in a movie torrent comment some people will comment about the quality of the movie sound quality or is it a camera copy saving you valuable time

Top Tips to increase bittorent download Speed


The latest file sharing protocol bittorrent has modified everything when it comes to file sharing. It is a nice platform for downloading large files. Sharing of files include movies, iso images and MP3 songs. Bittorent is mainly famous for illegal file sharing .
The Bittorrent system can be slow at times due to heavy traffic. so let us tweak bittorrent sharing program a little bit.
There are a lot of different bittorrent clients that you can download. I think the best are BitCommet and uTorrent. Here is a few tips to speed up uTorrent Client. Similar can be implemented on any other torrent clients ,which you are using.


Step 1: Increase TCP connections
You need to increase the number of TCP connections that are allowed at max.Windows XP Service Pack 2 came with the number of allowed open connections to 10. This is to stop any piece of spyware(in our case bittorent client even) from totally taking over your internet connection. TCP connection allowed should be 50 for optimal performance. The best way to increase the maximum number of connections is to apply patch that is available at www.lvllord.de. A nice way to fix this is to download this patch .
The little tweak to the torrent client works great in certain times. If you’re using uTorrent go to Options menu then Preferences. In the Preferences go the Advanced Options. In the advanced options change the net.max_halfopen connections to 80. In the same section change the max half open tcp connections to 80. Once your done click on OK and you are all set. This tweak will let the maximum TCP connection available for the bittorrent client. Now start downloading you’ll realize a little difference in the download speed. Port forwarding technique is more effective than this.
A third point of interest is that some “windows updates” revert your tweaked tcp connections back to 10. So it’s wise to check this every now and then. You can check this by going to (in windows xp) Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Event Viewer > System… Look for event 4226 (sort by event).
If there are a lot of daily occurrences it’s likely that the max amount of half-open tcp connections was set back to 10. Or you’re infected with some nasty spy ware…

Step 2:Torrent Client Configuration
In order to apply these tips you must know your maximum up- and download speed. You can test your bandwidth over here (stop all download activity while testing).
Settings 1-4 can be found in the options, settings or preference tab of most torrent clients.
1. Maximum upload speed

Probably the most important setting there is. Your connection is (sort of) like a pipeline, if you use you maximum upload speed there’s not enough space left for the files you are downloading. So you have to cap your upload speed.
Use the following formula to determine your optimal upload speed…
80% of your maximum upload speed
so if your maximum upload speed is 40 kB/s, the optimal upload rate is 32kB/s But keep seeding!

Trouble downloading on uTorrent


You have to adjust your allowed downloads through your settings. I think the default with uTorrent is two at a time, all others will pend until the aforementioned ones have completed. You can also change your upload speed to suit the priorities of your download, I.E. You need something fast, slide the upload rate a little lower. Don't forget to slide your upload back up though, share!

I am using utorrent..i want to know if how can i run it faster than usual speed of it..any idea? tnx!


The only way to make a torrent run any faster would be to increase your upload speed within the program. Torrents usually work on a speed ratio, meaning if your upload speed is set to 10 KB, your download may be capped at 200 KB.... if you up it to 20 KB upload then you'll max out at 400 KB down..

But, most of the time this isn't affecting anything, especially in utorrent. The most likely scenario is that the people you are getting it from have very slow connections or have many people getting the file at once. That's the downsides of torrents, it can take days or even weeks to download some files.
