Start torrent downloads remotely
Authored by: Mr. E. on Jan 05, '07 12:41:07PM

I guess it depends on how the torrent site enforces its membership requirements. I belong to one site that logs your IP when you sign in, so then as long as your torrent client is connecting from the same IP, it's allowed through (and I don't really know that it's blocked otherwise, but I do think the torrent client reports an error). This does create an extra challenge when managing everything remotely. I found that if I logged into the site from work to check up on the new torrents, it updated my IP address, so that when I started up the torrent client from home, it reported an error. The solution for me was in subscribing to the RSS feed at work through Thunderbird, no log-in required once it was set up, so as long as I didn't visit the site in Firefox, my IP was never updated and downloading from home was not a problem. Another solution, if your Torrent site tracks logged in user via IP, is to send a curl command from the home machine with the appropriate cookies attached.

This was a reply to hareron's comment on my last comment. Somehow I ended up putting it in the main thread rather than the reply thread.
