Torrent !!

{ Read the previous posts, its the continuation...}


As said in the previous post, Torrent is a metadata. The word metadata means data about another data. An example is dictionary.

So in BitTorrent a torrent is the one that has the extension .torrent. This file contains the data about the data which you want to download. Normally when you click a link to download a file, actually this torrent file is send to your computer. And this torrent file contains the location of the data which you want to download plus some extra data. Normally a torrent file contains informations about the tracker, the data and the computer which cordinates the file distribution.

So inorder to share some data, the client first prepares the torrent file. And the other peers download these torrent file and connect to the specified tracker, which tells them from which other peers to download the pieces of the files.
