This is part 03 in my Seedbox From Scratch series. In this series I start at the most basic level, assuming no server or Linux skills. First we built the easiest and most basic seedbox possible, and now we will continue by adding some of the more basic features.
Once you have your seedbox happily seeding torrents from your favorite private trackers, you’ll likely want to know how to get those files off your seedbox and back home. With most private trackers, you do not want to use BitTorrent from your home as well as your seedbox because it will hurt your ratio to download it (leech it) from the torrent cloud twice. Instead, you want your seedbox to do all the seeding, and get the files to your local computer in some other way.
Today we learn what just might be the simplest way to do that, and we won’t need FTP.
