Enhanced CTorrent dnh3.3.2 (CLI BitTorrent client)

The purpose of the Enhanced CTorrent effort is to fix problems that remain in the code, modernize existing features and algorithms, and implement new features while maintaining low overhead requirements and a high standard of performance (both part of the original CTorrent design philosophy). Highlights of the enhanced client include:

  • Support for large files (>2GB) and large torrents (>255 files)
  • Strategic selection of pieces to request for download
  • Continuous queueing of download requests, tuned based on latency and throughput for each peer
  • Improved download performance, including parallel requests in initial and endgame modes
  • Improved bandwidth regulation
  • Improved compatibility with other peers
  • Performance optimization and bug fixes
  • An interface for monitoring and managing multiple clients
  • Dynamic cache allocation and management, including prefetch
  • Flexible console I/O redirection
  • Interactive control commands and menus

If you’re using this, also check out ctcs (you’ll need perl to run it).

Does anyone have simple instructions on how to use ctorrent and the ctcs web interface? I looked through the user guide and looks to be all command line driven. I’ve done a lot of googling on this topic but have yet to come across anyone that’s using it.

Yeah I’m not exactly sure how to run the two (ctorrent+ctcs) together on the DroboShare. A short guide will be very useful!
