How to use Seedbox to download torrents anonymously and fast

If you are an avid torrent user, you will need a Seatbox server. Seed boxes are designed for the sole purpose of torrenting. They are designed with the right processor, memory, storage, bandwidth and applications, so you can download torrents quickly and securely.

In this article, we are going to dive into the seed box area. You will learn the concept of seed box on VPN and its benefits. Also, you will learn what it can do for you. How to start using one? How to download torrents anonymously and quickly?

What is a seed box?

In short, Seedbox is a server designed to share torrents 24/7.

But to better understand the concept, let’s define some BitTorrent concepts. BitTorrent is an efficient Peer-to-Peer (P2P) file sharing mechanism designed to share files (especially large ones) with large users. In BitTorrent terms, there are concepts such as swarm, seeds, peers and leeches.

  • A flood Is a group of users who share the same content.
  • The sower is the main player. This is the user who has already downloaded the entire torrent file.
  • Colleagues and leeches Users who download content.

Why are these ideas relevant to the seed box?

Torrenting is based on sharing “the more you share the more community” … However, many who are considered leeches will only download content for themselves without sharing. But in order for the torrent community to survive, rescue leeches must become sowers. That is precisely the purpose of private trackers: if users want to participate in their communities, they need a sharing rate. But not everyone has the resources to leave the computer openly 24/7 to share content. Torrent affects the computer and its internet connection.

Enter the seed box.

As I said at the beginning, seed boxes are specially designed servers. They upload / download 24/7 torrents, so they are generally very strong. Seatbox servers can be anything from a cloud-based virtual private server (VPS), to a container, to a plain metal server used at home. As long as these servers have the capacity, security, performance, and speed of sharing torrents, they can be called seed boxes.

Seed boxes can be shared, dedicated, managed or unmanaged.

  • Share: The resources of a server are shared with other users.

  • Dedicated to: Server resources are dedicated to one user.

  • Managed by: The service provider takes care of software installation, updates and some security.

  • Not managed: The provider leases the server resources, but the user installs and updates the seed box software.

VPN vs Seedboxes for torrenting.

VPNs are solutions for downloading torrents anonymously. In fact, VPNs are the best tools to enhance online privacy. VPNs encrypt your computer’s network packets, so your entire Internet connection, including torrent clients, will be hidden. VPN servers also hide your IP. However, VPNs have some drawbacks when torrenting.

Privacy?

When torrenting anonymously, VPNs and seedboxes offer the same level of privacy. VPNs encrypt (hide) BitTorrent traffic data from ISPs, government or hackers. But in seed boxes, you will not use BitTorrent from your computer, instead you will use the encrypted remote manager link. Also, both methods hide your IP address in the torrent cluster.

Fast?

However, when it comes to speed, VPNs use up all your resources, CPU, memory, bandwidth, and traffic data, so they can do torrenting very slowly. Seedbox, on the other hand, is a remote server that has nothing to do with your resources. You will only use your computer to connect to the seed box and manage remotely.

Seatbox servers are built with robust resources including CPU, memory and storage. They are also used in high speed data centers with speeds of 1 Gbps, 10 Gbps and 40 Gbps. These data centers have strong privacy and security measures. The above qualities make it difficult to find a home server. Therefore, seed boxes are usually sorted in the cloud and detected by service providers.

Below is a step-by-step guide on how to use Seatbox and how to download torrents anonymously and quickly.

  1. Access the Internet console. After registering in the seed box, you will receive a welcome email with proof of account. These credentials give you access to the web interface (Seed Box Management Console).
  2. Find access information. The Seatbox Management Console displays all active seedboxes with their access information (logins and IP), applications (FTP, VPN, etc.) and application. Here you can find invoices and other services.
  3. Access your remote seed box. Depending on the type of seed box (and apps) you have, you may have to approach it one way or another. The most common way to access a seed box’s torrent client is with a web address with IP address and credentials. But if you have a full VPS seed box, you may need to access it in other ways such as SSH, telnet, remote desktop.
  4. Managing and loading torrents. Suppose you are accessing the uTorrent web interface from the seed box. The easiest way to load a torrent is to use magnetic connections. Almost all modern torrent clients support magnetic URLs, especially ruTorrent.
  5. Monitor your torrenting activity. Fortunately, you can add more and track your current torrents by logging into the web interface provided by Seedbox. You can also do it from a mobile phone. But it will not do you any good unless you make good use of the content online.
  6. Download the content. To make good use of this content, you can download it to your home hard drive or stream it online. If you want to download the content, Seedboxes will enable file transfer protocols such as SFTP, FTPS, HTTP or RSync. Install FileZilla or other file transfer software on your computer, enter the credentials provided by the provider, install a session and download the content.

Distribute content. VPS seedboxes (such as Plex or Cody) that come with the installed streaming media server software give you access to your content. These apps can organize your content, display it on beautiful dashboards, download metadata like subtitles, and make your content available on any device, including TVs.

Transcode your media content. Some advanced seedboxes come with professional video encoders such as handbrake, so you can upgrade your media directly from the online server. You can compress files, upgrade videos, carve, embed verses, and more.

Open the VPN connection between you and the seed box. Some VPS seed boxes come with additional applications to enhance your experience. One of these applications is the OpenVPN server. Install the OpenVPN client on your computer, enter the credentials on the server, and install the VPN tunnel between your computer (client) and the seedbox (server).

Torrent automation software. Other notable applications include torrent automation software. Applications like Radarr, Sonnarr or Readarr are content managers for BitTorrent and Usenet. They track multiple RSS feeds (which you set up first), find the movies you like, connect to your torrent client, and download your content automatically. Such tools will find better and better content and replace the old.
