This is all about how to download/upload encrypted torrents.
I’ll try keep this simple, but comment if you have
it’s so long, I tried to keep it detailed – if you read
the whole thing
first you will see it is reasonably straight forward.
You need to download a program called uTorrent from . This allows you to download torrent files.
(Detail: torrent files
contain a list of
trackers/computers for the associated file you are
trying to download. For
example you download an Ubuntu torrent; you
use uTorrent to open the downloaded Ubuntu torrent file,
the file and connects to the tracker sites, this in turn
hundreds of people with the file and downloads bits from
reducing bandwidth costs to any one user and speeding up the download.)
Before you download any ,
uTorrent and choose Options – Preferences, then in the pop-up
to the bittorrent screen. From the protocol encryption
Forced in the outgoing option and uncheck ‘Allow
connections’ – this means your downloads are encrypted
directions (outgoing and incoming):
When your downloads
are encrypted this means your ISP (internet
service provider) cannot
tell what you are downloading or uploading
(sharing) but only that you
are using .
your torrent has finished (100% complete in uTorrent) you should
right-click on it within uTorrent and select remove torrent,
you keep the data you downloaded, you just don’t share it
less likely for you internet provider canceling your service
bandwidth usage, due to constant sharing.
You can also set up
rules to stop seeding (sharing) once you have
reached 100% which decreases your
upload and visibility using . By going to scheduling, the following screen shows seeding till 150% (downloaded the file, and shared it back 1.5x):
Now there are several sites out there where you can download torrent files –
Two reasons, it’s good, and the https means it is encrypted, so ISP
doesn’t know what you are clicking on really. I don’t think???
Couple of things to note about :
So I should probably mention, using
you can download almost anything; music, movies, tv shows, and
software. Say you download a movie or tv show, to watch it on your PC
you should use a program called VLC – it’s free and will pretty
play any filetype/codec.
Hope you can understand this, and it helps!
Downloading Copyrighted material is illegal.
The following site will provide free SSL certificate, these can be used for securing a connection – but should not be considered ‘trusted’, as only the domain name and email are validated.
This looks like it would probably minimize the hassle in creating your own self-signed certificates.
I created my own self-signed certificate using OpenSSL (), I don’t remember the exact steps – and I wish I wrote them here, I thought I did??? The site will no doubt have all the information you need.
