    I know people share seedboxes, but is it possible to run two separate screens in rtorrent or another client on a seedbox? Or maybe we could set it up by individual torrent which of our IP addresses is reported to the tracker?

    Basically, can my friend and I simultaneously upload torrents on a seedbox to the same tracker? Different trackers?

    The tracker uses passkeys but only allows one IP, so I had to put my home IP in my config file on rTorrent. I'll definitely ask the staff, but I don't think they even support rTorrent or anything much other than uTorrent. Other clients work ok, but not too well.

    This is good news. I didn't think it was possible, so I'm thankful for the positive replies, but could anyone tell me how?

    To get around needing to ask staff etc, most seedboxes have more than one IP address with the server, you can bind 2 separate instances of your torrent client to different IP addresses and the the users have separate IP addresses, this is most easily done with utorrent since the bind commands are fairly straight forward but can be done in other clients as well. The other thing is that the second IP needs to be bound to the NIC but apart from that it is fairly straightforward.
