I hope you have understood the basics of torrents from the previous post. If you have not, wait for the coming posts. For the time being lets stop bull shitting and do some practical stuff. Lets install a torrent client.

A torrent client is a like a download manager for torrents. But slightly different in the way it operates and downloads the files. A torrent client uses the bit torrent protocol to download the file. The best torrent client I have ever used is flashget.

Download Flashget from here

Flashget was a normal download manager. Its only recently that they added the bit torrent protocol also to it. Right now its the best download manager available with loads of features.

Download and install the program. We will cover how to download a file from the torrent network in the next post.

    I thought the best torrent client on windows is the uTorrent. In Linux, I prefer KTorrent.
