Ant Download Manager - User Guide
  • Torrents


Torrent (BitTorrent) is a special P2P (peer-to-peer) protocol designed to exchange files between users. The main feature of this protocol is that users download files not from some server, and each other - directly from PC. The scheme of exchange is organized in an effective way: the protocol will choose the fastest source, and if something happens to it (will turn off or the speed will drop dramatically) - the protocol will choose another source. In addition, the files are not downloaded sequentially, but in different segments, which allows a very flexible organization of the distribution: as soon as you start downloading something, you are automatically included in the distribution at the same time, allowing other users to download those pieces of the file that you have already downloaded yourself.
AntDM supports BitTorrent protocol implemented by project.
