Provided I understood the BitTorrent rules correctly:
Definitely too complicated to set up for my purposes: Anyone simply
wishing to get some binaries would have to spent hours learning and
setting up BitTorrent. Which is not what I want.

Not to mention the security aspects being involved when folks would have
to make a directory on their machine world readable ...

With this scenario it probably would be much easier to simply set up a
local apache here and the offer the packages (But 24 hrs / 7 days: No
way ... :) 

What I'm looking for is simply a small password protected public http
place (public as contrary to a local apache running 24 hrs / 7 days).

Again: Thanks.
I think I'll find something ... :)
