    bittorrent-downloader - download files using a scatter-gather network


    btdownloadheadless [ option ... ] URL
    btdownloadheadless [ option ... ] filename
    btdownloadcurses   [ option ... ] URL
    btdownloadcurses   [ option ... ] filename
    btdownloadgui      [ option ... ] URL
    btdownloadgui      [ option ... ] filename



    This manual page documents briefly the btdownloadheadless, btdownloadcurses, and btdownloadgui commands. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

    These are all programs that allow a user to download files using bittorrent, a peer to peer, scatter-gather network protocol. They all have the same options.  


    These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below.
    --responsefile filename
    treat filename as a file which the server reponse was stored in. If this option is used, no filename or URL should be present on the command line.
    --url url
    retrieve the torrent info file from url. If this option is used, no filename or URL should be present on the command line.
    -i ip | --ip ip
    report ip as your IP to the tracker
    --bind ip
    bind to ip instead of the default
    --minport portnum
    set portnum as the minimum port to listen on, counts up if unavailable (default 6881)
    --maxport portnum
    set portnum as the maximum port to listen on (default 6889)
    --saveas filename
    store the downloaded file to filename, instead of querying user (gui) or using the filename stored in the torrent info file
    --max_uploads num
    Only allow num uploads at once (default 4)
    --max_upload_rate kbytes
    maximum rate to upload at in kilobytes, 0 means no limit (default 0)
    --keepalive_interval secs
    pause secs seconds between sending keepalives (default 120.0)
    --download_slice_size bytes
    query for bytes bytes per request (default 32768)
    --request_backlog num
    keep num requests in a single pipe at once (default 5)
    --max_message_length bytes
    set bytes to the maximum length prefix encoding you'll accept over the wire - larger values get the connection dropped (default 8388608)
    --timeout secs
    wait secs before closing sockets which nothing has been recieved on (default 300.0)
    --timeout_check_interval secs
    check whether connections have timed out every secs seconds (default 60.0)
    --max_slice_length bytes
    requests from peers larger than bytes bytes are ignored (default 131072)
    --max_rate_recalculate_interval secs
    connections that pause longer than secs seconds are given reduced rate (default 15.0)
    --max_rate_period secs
    set secs to the maximum amount of time to guess the current rate estimate represents (default 20.0)
    --upload_rate_fudge secs
    set the time equivalent of writing to kernel-level TCP buffer to secs (default 5.0)
    --display_interval secs
    update displayed information every secs seconds (default 0.1)
    --rerequest_interval secs
    request more peers every secs seconds (default 300)
    --min_peers num
    do not rerequest if we have num peers already (default 20)
    --http_timeout secs
    wait secs seconds before assuming a http connection has timed out (default 60)
    --snub_time secs
    wait secs seconds for data to come in over a connection before assuming it's semi-permanently choked (default 30.0)
    --spew 1 | 0
    whether to display diagnostic info to stdout. This option is not useful when using btdownloadcurses or btdownloadgui. (default 0)
    --max_initiate num
    stop initiating new connections when we have num peers (default 40)
    --check_hashes 1 | 0
    whether to check hashes on disk (defaults to 1)
    --report_hash_failures 1 | 0
    whether to report to the user that hash failuers occur (non-fatal, common error) (default 0)
    --rarest_first_priority_cutoff num
    the number of peers which need to have a piece before other partials take priority over rarest first (default 3)
