    Hey guys...

    I'm looking for a script (pref. PHP) which will download files from bittorrent to our webserver so that we can download it from there to our pc. this improves the download speed from the net to the pc, esp for slower connections. (we know bittorrent doesn't utilize full bandwidth of the net connection consistantly)

    .bittorent to http, in other words. :)

    if this script could also seed the torrent on the server giving users more speed, there could be nothing better!

    Thanks!

    A friend who was learning php a year ago told me that php is capable of doing such thing, & torrentflux seems to do just that.

    php is capable of doing anything.... truly speaking it is as powerful as any other programming language. what u need to do is:

    1. Know how .torrent files are structured (If i would have known that i would have made the script for you)
    2. If not, u can use libraries for php (maybe there exist some)... try pecl.php.net for that.

    then u might be able to take files.. i think u shall require CURL installed... and it definately is possible...

    I found something interesting related to this, not excatly the torrent but large files to be transfered.
    http://www.mdccindia.com
    Big File Sender comes in 4 editions- Personal, Home, Professional, and Enterprise edition. You can send multiple files to multiple PCs. No speed limit, depend only on your ISP internet speed. It provides everyone with speedier file transfer to your office, employees, friends, business office, etc. Students can send study notes to their friends in minutes. Save money from expensive courier charges. Requires no training and no administrative maintenance. No account creation, download, register and start sending and receiving. For management of the files transferred, BFS has a log feature: every send n receive is logged, and you can see later what files did you send and received in the current session, from what IP, the time and so on. The transfer is peer 2 peer so no one can enter on this secure line, so don't worry, your transfer is safe. Very nice GUI that helps you see the progress better, progress bars, percentage labels and so on. The remote PC must have any edition of Big File Sender to send or receive the file. It means both PCs must have any edition of Big File Sender to transfer the files.

    The bad thing about this is 5 min trial per session, but if it works sounds good to try.
