Re: Optimize BitTorrent To Outwit Traffic Shaping ISPs

Use PuTTy and a shell to use SSH and tunnel your bittorrent traffic. Info here: »whalesalad.com/2006/08/27/tunnel···/#eberth

I recommend checking freeshells.info for shells.

And I recommend talking to your shell provider before doing this. It's considered "rude" to blindly siphon network traffic through a shell host like this, since now you're not only using up large amounts of bandwidth yourself, but on your shell providers' uplink as well.

I can tell you that as a hosting provider that offers SSH, if our users started doing that with their shell accounts, I'd be *livid*.
