Bittorrenting on the ReadyNAS has never been easier. Of the NASes I had used, bittorrent is either buggy or lack control over seeding feature. The ReadyNAS comes with decent bittorrent support, it allows user much control over the running of torrent – starting, stopping or removing. It also allow user to customize settings like port to be used, bandwidth allocation and seeding options. However, the lack of encryption option may be a problem for some users.
I hope future releases would come with the following:
- Encryption option
- Queue management
- IP Filter option
- Global Connections, Per-torrent Connections
- Automatic download through RSS
Oops. I hope I am not asking for too much. For those who are interested, ReadyNAS is using the BitTorrent SDK client. Anyway, check out the screen shots!
