shareaza

Hi,

this is my first post here. I just jumped on the bit torrent bandwagon, it is fast.
I'm using shareaza, I primarily started to use it as an alternative to ed2k/emule, and thought I'd give its bt properties a go.
I was wondering if it's a really rubbish bt client, or not. I'm sure it must be advantageous to use a proper bt client, but how advantageous.
I can save ram etc by combining ed2k and bt downloads in one program.
thanks.

Well Shareza doesn't work with PHPBT tracker I think so that should be good enough reason. I suggest using ABC bittorrent client on sourceforge. It has many advantages...to many to list. Just see website

im a beta tester of the personal torrent collector 1.x client, aka PTC on sourceforge.net. So far its a great client, the older releases are good too. I recommend either PTC or ABC.

Shareaza has the major advantage of being able to finish a BitTorrent download even if the tracker goes down forever.

ABC can do that too, once it got list of clients and connected to them...it stays connected and downloads even if tracker goes down

Can it download parts of the file from other filesharing networks such as eDonkey?

thanks guys, I'll take what u said under consideration... for now I think I'll stick to shareaza... but I'll keep an eye out for abc since it seems to be highly recommended.
