Oh, I can figure it out. Reasons for not torrenting in the paste is because of the seeding. If you just grab and don't seed, it is leeching and you ultimately get cut off. As I do not have the space/bandwidth for normal torrenting, I've never dug into setting up the server.
You don't need massive bandwidth or storage space. The torrent isn't one massive 50gig file, it's the folders as your examining. When opening the torrent you simply select which files you want to download.
That I did not know. Different than normal.
I don't understand how you say someone could "upload it to your server" but you cannot download the same files. It's one in the same. If you have the space and bandwidth for someone to upload to you, then you have the space and bandwidth to download.
Previously explained. I was under the impression that you had to get the complete 50 GB. Now I find out that isn't the case.
There are unix torrent clients. Most clients will actually analyze the file and fix the portion of the file that is corrupt or broken. You might need only 8kb of bandwidth for this to be fixed for all we know.
Solaris is not a very well supported OS these days. That is why I am dumping it and going back to Linux. But, I have a lot of configuring to do to get it on line and replace the current server. As indicated, it will be impossible for the client to analyze the folders and fix the file, as the files are not available on the server. But, as superleo posted, I can just get what I need.
You aren't entitled to the disc, you don't even ask nicely for people to do you the favor, figure it out!
Sorry that you believe that I wasn't asking nicely.
