    Question Mark

    hi!

    i was thinking of getting a seedbox on a vps (dedicated ones are too expensive or unavailable in my country), but what has stopped me so far is the thought of having to download things twice..

    but if i could forward X sessions via ssh, or - even better - mount shares via NFS, i could spare me the hassle and "stream" content to my local pc..

    does anyone know if this is a possibility?

    companies may be blocking ports, but other than that, if they let me install what i want, there should be no problem..

    thanks
    asy

    If your home connection had the bandwidth to stream content you wouldnt need a seedbox (although music might work)

    I would advise against getting a VPS. Hosting companies dont like users monopolizing a server's shared resources; most have a policy against BT as well. Dreamhost deleted my bittorrent directory less than a week after I installed it (the loadavg was reaching 6)

    while i have only tried this on my LAN, streaming a movie takes ~ 1MBps, and my ADSL connection can definitely handle that..

    the true problem is UL bandwidth, which is at a ridiculous 1Mbps, and on that side a seedbox would definitely be an improvement
