Client for distributing large files via the BitTorrent protocol
Azureus is a powerful BitTorrent protocol client. It comes bundled with many invaluable features for both beginners and advanced users, such as multiple torrent support, speed limiting, fast resuming and more.
The BitTorrent protocol is a "peer-to-peer" way to distribute files on the internet. It was designed to move large amounts of data to many users without the costly server space and bandwidth that a distributor would usually have to pay for. Users who download a file then become a new source for transmitting that data. You can read more about BitTorrent at Wikipedia.
In order for this software to work you must have the proprietary Java environment installed on your computer. If you do not have Java on your computer already, the Azureus installation will not be able to complete. .
