Thank you for the advice. I will give it a try.

Thank you, this has backed up what I thought. No provider encourages sharing copyrighted material. I only got the RPS to learn linux and host a couple of websites. I don't know one thing about linux command line lol. - Apart from it being really difficult :P

Thank you both for the reply.

Well, pretty much every full release of Ubuntu from Canonical overwhelms their http servers on launch day so the torrents are a significant part of the distribution mechanism.

It's not just Ubuntu that gets distributed by torrent though; id Software runs a permanent tracker for their patches, linux binaries and demos at zerowing.idsoftware.com.

Having only ever used torrents for non-copyright-infringing material, I've never thought that there was a 'shortage' of legal content delivered by torrent.

Hi,

I recently got a RPS server off OVH for webhosting, I just wondered if I was to install TorrentFlux to download/seed torrents (legal ones of course) would i be breaking any of the OVH Terms of Service/Use.

I just wanted to ask before I went ahead and installed it.

Also I noticed from the manuals, OVH have monitoring software installed on my RPS, I just wanted to make sure my server security isn't going to be breached because of this and all my data will remain private?

Thank you.
Chris
