    some other providers that even if you don't upload a single byte, they still kick your ass for torrenting,

    Do you suppose that might be due to disk i/o usage (or whatever strains shared system resources) - or risk management due to previous bad experience, or ...?

    Feel free to PM me the list of providers likely to cut your nuts off. (Asking for a friend ...) I'm guessing it may be a much shorter list than the don't ask / don't tell curation.

    Well, torrenting in general is a fairly demanding procedure for the network and the disk IO. I always limit mine severely - 1 torrent at a time downloading, and a max of 10 peers. That's because I don't like being noisy.

    I also suspect that with most "torrent friendly" providers is that the notices come in but they don't act on them, whereas the "not as friendly" will forward them to you.

    More than happy to continue our PM on this topic if you want @uptime ;)

    Put it this way - the provider isn't going to say "Hey everyone, go nuts torrenting!"

    If you'd like some anecdotal evidence to help with your question, I personally have been successful in downloading torrents using this service. I haven't seeded a byte, and that could be the key to my success. YMMV.

    EDIT: I have found with some other providers that even if you don't upload a single byte, they still kick your ass for torrenting, which is completely fair enough. I would compare it to legalized vs decriminalized. Our romanian friend is "legalized" and everyone else is "decriminalized". Some providers are like the judge/jury/executioner though in this analogy.

    How do you not have a single byte seeded? That's not how torrents work. Please post screenshot showing downloads with absolutely no uploaded bytes.

    You're kidding, right? You use transmission and you set upload to 0, disallow seeding. You only receive parts of Linux ISOs and never send any parts of Linux ISOs.

    Obviously if everyone did that, torrents would cease to exist.

    Provide screenshots of proof that this doesn't work.

    iirc you need to send in order to recieve. My personal expirence is that if you limit your upload speed to 0, you won't be able to download either (I may have configured wrong though. Not an expert on this). afaik torrent clients think of seeding as uploading after you download the full file. So anything uploaded while downloading is not counted as seeding (thus disallowing seeding still uploads during when files are being downloaded).

    Anyway, seeding should also be fine as long as you don't hammer system resources, and doesn't get any complaints (use a proper VPN or proxy)

    Anyway, seeding should also be fine as long as you don't hammer system resources, and doesn't get any complaints (use a proper VPN or proxy)

    The only torrent client I use is transmission-daemon. In settings.json you can set these flags, which will never upload anything:

    "speed-limit-up": 0,
    "speed-limit-up-enabled": true,
    "ratio-limit": 0,
    "ratio-limit-enabled": true,
    

    This will make sure that a) nothing can be uploaded, and b) it won't attempt to seed the file while it's downloading or after it's completed.

    When I say I haven't uploaded a single byte of data, what I'm referring to specifically is the torrent data itself. Not the TCP ACK packets etc. In the scope of avoiding DMCA, uploading "illegal material" is the problem - and if you're not uploading any, there's no problem.

    EDIT: For anyone who uses private trackers and seedboxes, what I'm talking about will NOT help you. This is for free loading off public trackers and avoiding "sharing illegal content" which in turn avoids DMCA notices.

    EDIT2: @sanvit @TimboJones PM if you want to discuss more, I'm not really sure it's appropriate to talk about this in a provider's offer thread ;)

  • When I torrent download a linux iso I don't make any attempt to throttle uploading, but my upload speed is usually 0 anyway, just because so many people are seeding from beefier servers than mine.

    Yep. This is usually fine as long as you aren't trying to pluck an ISO within the first 45m of release

    Good point. It didn't list the nvme. I just moved ahead. Will check the thread from beginning. Thnx

  • plumberg said: It didn't list the nvme.

    if that's the case, then you probably just need to load the virtio drivers first to make the nvme appear in the list at all. But I have no clue if you can remount the ISOs live with their control panel to get the drivers disk in...
