Original BitTorent client and tracker - console tools

BitTorrent is a tool for distributing files. It's extremely easy to use - downloads are started by clicking on hyperlinks. Whenever more than one person is downloading at once they send pieces of the file(s) to each other, thus relieving the central server's bandwidth burden. Even with many simultaneous downloads, the upload burden on the central server remains quite small, since each new downloader introduces new upload capacity.

This package contains the console-only tools for downloading, creating torrent meta files, and a tracker. If you want the GUI interface, install the bittorrent-gui package.
