    I'm just curious as to what BT program everyone likes. I've just recently started getting torrents with my MB and I'm trying to get some feedback. Any info is much appreciated.

    Transmission. But, if you have a PC, run uTorrent on it and control it through the internets / network through the WebUI feature. I can add, stop, delete torrents from my MBP regardless of where I am :hs:

    ah ok. sweet. I'm just getting accustomed to using it. I've never had to enter the tracker URL before because I've always used UTorrent or BitTornado and I think they just automatically found the URL.

    It's really quite easy. You need to set up a newer version of uTorrent on your PC (I'm using 1.6.1 right now). Go to Options>Preferences>Advanced>WebUI. Enter in a username and password to allow outside access to uTorrent, and specify a port # (11127 is the default, I believe).

    Now log into your router and forward said port. If you need help with this, the following link should work. Just select the make and model of your router and it will walk you through the steps. http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm

    Finally, if you don't have a static IP address, you'll want to go to the following link and set up an account. This will allow you to access your pc from a static address name (for example, morpheus647.dyndns.org)
    https://www.dyndns.com/account/

    You'll want to download their dns utility to the pc and have it run in the background to maintain syncronization between your dynamic IP address and your new static domain name.

    Now you should be able to create a bookmark in your laptop's web browser with the following info:
    http://morpheus647.dyndns.org:11127/gui/
    After confirming the username and password you specified for uTorrent's WebUI interface, you should be logged in and controlling uTorrent remotely

    I find this extremely useful as all my PC is used for is serving FTP and torrents. I rarely touch it anymore, I much prefer to use my MBP. It also doesn't make sense to me to serve anything from the laptop as it will obviously stop hosting whenever I power down and transport my notebook. This isn't a really in depth "EDU" but it should be sufficient, hopefully it helps :wavey:

    Sweet. I'll keep that in mind for whenever my PC bites the dust and gets replaced by a Mac Pro (which, hopefully is no time soon because the PC functions as a server quite well, but hell, atleast I'd have a good excuse to pick one up hehe)
