    Then I think we don't need the bounty, just wait for the torrent plugin and the release of AmiGIFT, then donate the authors (if possible and they want).

    you can donate/register just by now!

    Amigift 2.0 pre release

    ah... that "request" from the Amigift author for an AmigaNG hardware system, is valid for a Pegasos2 as well ;-)

    Edit- just for correctness... about the BitTorrent plugin, don't hold your breath!
    There are problems (BitTorrent do not work with supernodes where to send the search requests) that makes
    problematic a plugin implementation in a P2P app (BitTorrent ISNT a p2p network by itself)

    Anyway Diego Casorran "seems" ready to write one (indipendent by Amigift)

    I think you have to register, not donate (Donations will encourage further development of course!) since the plugin will be available only to registered users, iirc.
    Also, i advice to use Amigift 1 for now. The V2 prerelease is not very functional due to various bugs.

    a new Amigift 2.0 pre-release is out at

    http://amigift.sourceforge.net/preRelease/

    About the (i hope few) Amigift 1.x users, DELETE all the Mui settings Amigift related (Env-Archive:mui/giFTMui.cfg and .prefs) or you will land in a pile of poo! :-)

    Take a look at the AMIGIFT.readme at least...

    No news on this front?
    My money (yes, willing to donate) is on an RTorrent port.
    It's very easy to use, supports magnet links and trackerless torrents & has a nice web gui already made for those shell shocked people.

    Why dont you use MLDonkey? It has a nice WebGui Frontend and supports Torrent. There are lots of magnet2torrent websites, which convert your magnet link to a torrent file.

    Knew about making a .torrent from magnet links, but does MLDonkey work with trackerless torrents? Older clients like Transmission on OS X Tiger just hang on those.

    I have no issues with torrents and MLDonkey.
    Just browse for the torrent and save it into the correct folder in the MLDonkey folder.
    I forget which folder that is. Maybe under torrent/incoming....
    Make sure you patch MLDonkey to 3.1.0 after installing 3.0.0.

    I think, main issue is a processor power consumption which is pretty huge. I'm using torrent very rarely but is OK, working well with all torrents tracker.

    Hmmm I checked yesterday the Mldonkey but the download speed I was getting was rather disappointing (20kb/s with the default values on). Should I tinker it somehow? I m a so in for a bounty to a working torrent client (with complete gui of course :P).

    @ Cool_amigaN

    THere is a tool for MUI which supports many download sources like Donkey and others. Last version is some years old. I think it is even open source. I just forgot the name. I looked here but could not find it: http://amiga.sourceforge.net . If anyone remembers the name maybe this can be used for having several platforms under one hat.
