 Torrents on RPNet


Torrents on RPNet have been in beta for well over a year. The project was initially picked up to expand our service offering for our users, but other developments took priority, eventually stalling development on the torrent feature completely.

We've recently picked it up again, and while the features remain the same as they were when the system was in Beta, we've made some important backend changes that we hope will go a long way in making our torrents offering a more stable experience.

Please remember that the Torrent feature on RPNet is absolutely complimentary and does not involve any extra charges.

We will continue to develop further features and enhancements into the Torrent feature. At this time, please note the following information:

- The 'Download' box is where you will enter your magnet links for torrents. Our system currently only supports magnet links and uploading .torrent files is not possible (yet)

- All torrents are currently seeded up to 1:1 ratio. There is no time limit, but if our system detects that a torrent has been seeding for too long (usually over 10 days) without hitting 1:1 ratio, it will be removed.

- All torrents added will be allowed to run for 5 days to download. If a torrent has not downloaded 100% within 5 days, our system will assume that it will likely never download in full (due to lack of seeders or not having seeders with 100% of the torrent). This torrent will be removed from the system. The files for this torrent will remain, and a progress report will be created in the files directory that will show you the date the torrent was added, the date it was removed, and the list of files and their completed %.

- You may download up to 10 torrents simultaneously; at this time, you may store any number of torrents. There is no storage limit (your 50GB storage is independent of the torrent storage and does not count towards it). Having said that, please be mindful of your use and refrain from intentionally overloading the system by queuing up tens of large torrents all at the same time. We will continue to monitor the system for any potential abuse cases.

As always, please report all bugs at the helpdesk. We'll expand on the Knowledgebase articles if we feel there is need for that, going forward.
