Fetch files from a seedbox

Sat Feb 08, 2014 10:58 pm

How would one go about fetching files from a seedbox?

If I setup vsftpd then I have a ftp server but can I tell that server to go and fetch from the seedbox?

I know I could setup the Pi as a seedbox but there are bandwidth problems to contend with.

I use bittorrent sync. Works perfect and has built in hash checks to make sure transfers where OK.

I had loads of errors when I setup lftp to transfer files.

Hi Rich,
is it possible to use BitTorrentSync even if you have only access to your seedbox through plain FTP...?
And ..how do you make this possible..?
Thank you for the time you dedicate in answering to me.

Sorry but no. Bittorrent sync needs to be installed on both machines to work.

Still using here with no issues.
