What is BitTorrent?

BitTorrent is a protocol used for peer-to-peer file sharing suitable for distributing large amounts of data over the global sweetest nerdy Internet. BitTorrent is the most common protocol for transferring large files.

Kali Linux and any other Linux distribution don’t come with any BitTorrent client installed by default. You will have to download one install it, either from repositories or .deb package. Here is my top List of my most favorite Torrent Clients that Never disappoint.

  1. Deluge
  2. Qbittorent
  3. Transmission

Installing Deluge BitTorrent Client

Deluge utilizes a client/server model with “deluged” being daemon or service and the “deluge” being used to launch a GUI user interface. It is my best Kali Linux BitTorrent client that is super-fast and always reliable.
