BitTornado is a BitTorrent client. It is developed by John Hoffman, who also created its predecessor, Shad0w’s Experimental Client. Based on the original BitTorrent client, the interface is largely the same, with added features such as:
- upload/download speed limitation
- prioritised downloading when downloading batches
- detailed information about connections to other peers
- UPnP Port Forwarding (Universal Plug and Play)
- IPv6 support
- PE/MSE support
BitTornado developer John Hoffman decided to ban BitComet users from accessing his client because it exploits super-seeds.
This is the stable version an experimental 0.3.18 version is also available.
For Linux, BSD, OSX, etc.Requires Python 2.0+, wxPython for the GUI client.
