BitTorrent is one of the most common peer-to-peer file sharing protocols used over the past few years for transferring data. Although it was designed in 2001, the protocol has found its popularity several years later.
A BitTorrent client is any software capable of properly implementing the BitTorrent protocol.
Therefore, using the BitTorrent protocol, a client must be able to request, prepare, and transmit any type of file over a network.
Any computer running a BitTorrent client that wants to download the file must first obtain a torrent file containing information about the data to be shared, about the tracker, and about the station coordinating the data distribution.
