Having posted my copy of the snipsnap .tgz package and thinking about a presentation I was planing to do on privacy and copy right I began to investigate Bittorrent. The Pirate Bay trial is going on at the moment and the peer-to-peer nature of bt appeals to many libertarians.
I tested it using Open Office which has a bit torrent distribution page. This has downloaded and seeded. I need to check if it requires firewall configuration to participate in a feed.
Ubuntu has both bittorrent and bittornado as packages.

Can I install a version on Linux, can I make my qube a seed server, or even davelevy.info?
It looks fairly simple to create the .torrent file. I expect I can use my web version as the internet seed and a public tracker
What are my Firewall implications?
