Is there a bittorrent proxy? I'd like to put it on the machine on my
LAN that is always on and has a huge disk. The proxy would take
requests from any user on my LAN and carry out the request for them.
This way, they wouldn't have to remain logged in themselves during the
download, and could just turn their machines on when the download was
Since my LAN is IP-masqueraded, it would also simplify the IP-forwarding
that would otherwise be necessary to use bittorrent. I can't I can't
IP-forward to *all* the machines on my LAN, and taking turns gets to be
a nuisance. With a proxy, I'd just have to IP-forward to the proxy (or
not, if it was the gateway machine).
