1. Purpose

A BitTorrent tracker with minimal functionality and a fast and robust C++ implementation.

It is mostly designed to run as the tracker of http://tasvideos.org/, but it should work anywhere else too.

2. Features

Basic BitTorrent tracker features.
  • Peer directory ("announce")
  • Scrape (also multitorrent scrape)
  • File
  • Multi-request HTTP/1.1
  • Compact output
  • NAT detection (peer sandboxing if the IP&port they report cannot be connected and/or responds with wrong peer information)
Does not keep track of upload/download speeds.

The index only redirects to an external address. If you need statistics about the tracker contents, you need to parse the "dfile" yourself.

3. Copying

ea has been written by Joel Yliluoma, a.k.a. Bisqwit,
and is distributed under the terms of the General Public License (GPL).

It utilizes also code from BNBT Beta 7.7, a C++ BitTorrent Tracker by Trevon Hogan also distributed by GPL.

4. Requirements

  • GNU make is required to recompile the source code.
  • In addition, boost_filesystem, openssl and libevent libraries are required.

5. Downloading

Downloading help

  • Do not download everything - you only need one file (newest version for your platform)!
  • Do not use download accelerators or you will be banned from this server before your download is complete!
