Got any ideas on how to share a 4.2 GB ISO file without a central
hosting/FTP server? We have heard about Torrent, but the more
options the better.  Actually, I would love to share the snapshot
DVD of our project with other members of the team, since there is
more on the DVD than what is referred to by the HTML pages.

Can You send me a torrent file of that ISO? Then I will add it to
the tdf tracker and grab it from your machine if provided there by a
torrent client. Be aware it needs as long as uploading ftp but will
make it available for as many machines as you like without killing a
single server.


Yes I would, but
[1] my account will not handle a 4 GB file,

The torrent file might have some 30 - 300 KB

[2] I cannot upload it to me domain server since it is over 1 GB in

Send me by private mail, if you want ;o))

Hier some steps to produce it:

- Download utorrent to a suitable place

- Start it from there (no installation required).

- If in systray start application window

- File -> Create new torrent

Dialog opens:

- Add file (browse your ISO-file)

Section Torrent Properties

- Trackers:
  (replace any other)

Section other

- [x] start seeding
- Create and save as...  (wait some minutes)

Save torrent file anywhere.

Send it to my mailaddress. Wait for confirmation.

What is the advantage over ftp?

You can interrupt the upload whenever You want and continue the like.

When we have "locked" the DVD, after the editing out all the grammar
errors and typos we can find, we were hoping to have the ISO on the
TDF/LibreOffice/LibreOffice-Box server[s].

The maximum upload speed for my Cable-Modem broadband service is 120
KB/sec, so it will take about 8 to 10 hours uploading it via FTP. 

Same thing with bittorrent except you don't have to start from beginning
if something fails and - if you want - you can put your computer sleep
when you sleep and start next day by just starting utorrent.

That is how I found out my hosting account would not allow such large
files, I uploaded it to the server via FileZilla and the file was
given a zero size.  Then the support person told me that hosting an
ISO file makes my account a repository which is not allowed.

I never dealt with torrent, so if I need to use that to upload it from
my computer, I do not know how to do it.  I would prefer to upload it
directly to a folder via FTP.

see howto on top.

So whatever way I can, from my desktop, upload the 4.1 GB ISO file to
"your" server/computer, I will give it a try soon.  Hopefully I/we
will be done with the editing soon.

If it's uploaded I can "unpack" it and offer the files for download.
drew then can download those to his ftp-space where You can work on
them. Unfortunately we can't offer ftp-access but I see that's no

But might be I will go sleeping soon 1:14 am now here :o))
