CTorrent – a BitTorrent Client program written in C/C++ for FreeBSD and Linux. Fast and small are CTorrent’s two strengths.

Currently, it can be run on most Linux, FreeBSD and Mac OS distributions. The CTorrent project was finished in 2004 by its author YuHong. Since then, a set of extensions has been created for the original client and was named Enhanced CTorrent.

Bittorrent-gui – a tool for distributing files. It’s extremely easy to use – downloads are started by clicking on hyperlinks. Whenever more than one person is downloading at once they send pieces of the file(s) to each other, thus relieving the central server’s bandwidth burden. Even with many simultaneous downloads, the upload burden on the central server remains quite small, since each new downloader introduces new upload capacity.

The latest version of the application for Windows, Android and Mac platforms is available under EULA License.
The Linux (older) package is offered via distribution’s repository and is available under MIT License.
