Hello there,

We do not help with torrent software only if it is used for piracy, and you are advised to uninstall it during clean up of an infected machine.

You can see Bleeping Computer's forum rules here.

Regards,
Alex

We can assist you with FileZilla, since it's only a legitimate FTP program after all, but not rTorrent.

Edit: On a side note, what was your question on rTorrent? If it's regarding the installation or configuration, I guess we can answer that. If it's to download copyrighted content, then we can't. After all, there's still legitimate usage to torrent clients.

Okay, that brings up a question in my mind.  I've always stayed away from Torrent for the reasons you stated.  But it's frequently included in Linux distros, viz Mint 17 and PCLinuxOS .  When does it make sense to use Torrent? IF you do not want to answer this question, feel free to delete my post.  I'm totally ignorant of Torrent, but see it so often when looking at distro mirror sites, I was curious.  Thank you for your time!

It makes sense to use torrents when you want to download really big files (like Linux .iso) on a limited/slow Internet connection so manage your allocated speed (download/upload) and bandwitdh.

So that's a valid usage.  Okay, will learn about it, then. I don't have slow or limited internet but someone might ask me about it, someday.  Thank you!!
