(Note: BNBT EasyTracker/Trinity Edition has not updated since September 2004 Several major updates have happened within the BNBT core that are NOT in that edition. Due to this reason, links to its main site have been removed.)
BNBT was written by Trevor Hogan. BNBT is a complete port of the original Python BitTorrent tracker to C++ for speed and efficiency. BNBT also offers many additional features beyond the original Python BitTorrent tracker, plus it's easy to use and customizable. BNBT is covered under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL).
I'm looking for files to download with BitTorrent!
You're looking in the wrong place. BNBT is a BitTorrent tracker, not a place to download files.
I'm looking for a BitTorrent tracker to use with my PHP + MySQL webhost!
You're also looking in the wrong place. BNBT is a standalone binary and most webhosts don't allow regular users to run standalone binaries. You should take a look around the FileSoup forums - several PHP + MySQL trackers are available on their forums.
I'm looking for a replacement for the Python tracker!
You've found the right place! BNBT is a great replacement for the Python tracker - it's not only faster, but it also offers many additional features! You should download the latest version of BNBT and read the documentation; if you have any further questions, feel free to ask on the BNBT Forums. BNBT should work with Windows, Linux, Unix, OS X, FreeBSD, Sun Solaris, and possibly other systems (so don't let the .zip extension scare you off).
I'm a Windows user looking for an easy-to-use BitTorrent tracker!
A windows installer is availble for the latest release of XBNBT (xbnbt.msi)
(Note: BNBT EasyTracker/Trinity Edition has not updated since September 2004 Several major updates have happened within the BNBT core that are NOT in that edition. Keep this in mind when choosing an edition to use. Also, there is at least 1 standing remote-crash exploit that remains unpatched in EasyTracker.)
