Torrents are files using the BitTorrent protocol to download other files from individuals who have it. BitTorrent is one of the more complicated systems of peer-to-peer file sharing, but it is also one of the few that is still in operation with hundreds of thousands of users worldwide. What makes BitTorrent more complicated than other peer-to-peer systems is that BitTorrent requires a stand-alone BitTorrent client. A BitTorrent client is a program that interprets a torrent file and searches for others on one of several networks who have the file available for download. Several different BitTorrent clients exist and each operates a little differently than the other. The most popular clients are uTorrent, BitTorrent, BitComet, and Vuze. Downloading one of these free clients is the first step in using torrents.

Once you have a client, you will need to set it up. If you have a home router, the setup often involves forwarding BitTorrent traffic through one or more ports. You will have to log on to your router to do this. It is not usually a required step, as most clients can use a default UPnP port, but port forwarding will allow for faster downloads.

After your client has been installed and set up, you can find torrents by visiting a website that hosts torrents for download. Download or otherwise open the torrent and it will activate your client to search for and download the file the torrent is associated with. Remember, it is illegal to download copyrighted material in the U.S., and most other countries, without paying for it. A few individuals have been prosecuted for illegally downloading copyrighted media.
