    Hi there,
    i'm planning to rent a seedbox where i can choose the OS myself.
    I have experience with Fedora and know how to set it up.
    But how about Windows Server 2003?
    Is it more simply to configure utorrent on Windows Server 2003?
    How do i load the Data from the Server on my PC? Through sFTP?
    I want to install a FTP Server, is this possible on Windows Server 2003?
    so much questions... i hope i get answers
    thank you very much

    Go with Windows.

    uTorrent will run natively on it.

    There are easy and free FTP servers like FileZilla Server.

    And other stuff.

    Yup, I use Windows 2003.. its just like your own computer (but a little different)

    I personally use Serv-U, I find it very simple to setup and its on torrent sites everywhere. Then you just FTP from your home to your server, download all you want.

    I recommend Ubuntu. The documentation and support community is infinitly better than Fedora's or CentOS's. Debian is reasonable too now that they've released a modern stable version.
