P2P   A reference tool for bittorrents and other peer-to-peer data transfer.


what is...
When a file is first released, no one will have any parts of the file. The user that created the torrent (or someone else that has the complete file) will seed the file by running their bit torrent client, "downloading" to the location of the complete file. They are added to the tracker's list, and all the clients start to download from the seeder.
