Sharing specific files with ruTorrent (Non- Torrent)


May 18, 2018
Sometimes you want to directly share a file with friends and family without the headache of passing out your usernames, etc.
One of the limitations of ruTorrent is that you can only share a file (not a directory). And you can only share it for 12 hours.

Step 1. With ruTorrent running, Pick a file to share (If there are multiple files - create an archive of them Archive - How to )

Step 2. Using the Filemanager tab, navigate to the desired file. Right click the file to pop up a menu box. Select "Share"

Step 3. The File Share tool will pop up allowing you to verify the file you selected, set a time limit for sharing (1 hour - 12 hours) and select a password if desired. Click "Add" when done.

Step 4. Click on the fileshare Tab and select the file you just added. Right click for the Menu pop up, and select "Edit" **I've found that the copy link rarely seems to work***

Step 5. **Without Changing anything** Double click on the link that shows up and use the Copy/Paste function of your computer to send the link to your friends. Close the dialog box when done.
