    Well there is not one that will run "on" the wii, but if you use transmission on a smallbox you can interface with it through opera. I do this with a small NAS I have to watch my queue and pause,remove, etc torrents.

    Nothing like that exists.
    Though I doubt you'd get good speeds anyway.

    What, so you can pirate without moving from the couch?
    I dont know how advanced Wii Linux is, maybe that would work?

    Yar, this will allow you to control the torrents on your PC remotely. Enable it in utorrent's settings, then go to...
    YOURIP:PORT/gui/
    In the web browser, and log in.

    Guess someone didn't let you know... all the cool kids have secret invite-only torrent sites these days. All the uncool ones have to rely on -shivers- megaupload and rapidshare. Course you can still go oldschool and do IRC... but since most kiddies don't even know what DOS was or understand that you can command computers via text and not just shiny GUIs.... But I digress.

    1 - Invite-only torrent sites aren't that good anymore, even the fabled -torrent site removed- is not my first checking place.
    2 - The actual old-school shit is usenet.

    You tried to school somebody older than you. [​IMG]

    EDIT: FFFF- whoops, sorry.

    Bittorrent is great for certain files. Take properly ripped music for example. Usenet or DDL forums do not compare to the lossless trackers.

    I'm more of a Usenet guy(great for big files, good security, and best of all guaranteed speeds and no seeding), but there are some things that Bittorrent is better for than other file sharing methods.

    Agreed.

    As far as Wii Scene Releases go, usenet/newsgroups are "teh win" as the BT releases, private or not, tend to be behind the usenet releases, as much behind as the NTSC groups have been lagging the PAL groups as of late at least, lol [​IMG]

    Back to the OP: ?Torrent's webUI, WiiVNC, or buying a BT NAS with a WebUI are your best options. With current bandwidth availability, the Wii will under perform as a BT client.
