UBUNTU – Azureus + Vuze: have a good torrent!

Posted by thio4linux on January 8, 2010

I’ve tried in this days a new good apps for dowload .torrent files.

Azureus + Vuze is a great combination to find whatever you want on the net!

Azureus is a BitTorrent client (BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer file distribution tool).
It offers multiple torrent downloads, queuing/priority systems (on torrents and files), start/stop seeding options and instant
access to numerous pieces of information about your torrents.

Vuze is a multimedia BitTorrent client based on Azureus and intended for DVD and HD video.

In this way you can search what you want in a very simple way…

Installing this 2 apps is so simle. On your ubuntu type:

sudo apt-get install azureus

and this install also vuze on your PC.

In oter way if you want to have the last vuze version you can find it here.

The interface is like this:

vuze interface
vuze interface

in the upper part these the search button, on the left the menu with download, upload, RSS, etc. of your .torrent files.

It’s very simple to use and nice to see… also available for Windows and MacOs system.

Have a Good Torrent!!!

How to connect 2 linux pc with a sharing connection

you should have 2 network interfaces:
– one directly connected to internet (i use ppp0 in this tutorial)
– and the other for the connection of the 2 pc (i use ethernet eth0)

on the pc connected to internet (the “server”):
sudo ifconfig eth0 up
sudo iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o ppp0 -j MASQUERADE
sudo sh -c “echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward”

and then look at the resolv.conf file: gedit /etc/resolv.conf

on the other pc (“client”):
sudo ifconfig eth0 192.168.100.x (substitute x with a number from 2 to 255)
sudo route add default gw

then open the resolv.conf file and add here the address that you have find on the server pc.

PPPOE: Nortek JET Adsl su Ubuntu

Posted by thio4linux on October 8, 2007

come installare i driver su Ubuntu Feisty Fawn

1- collega il modem alla porta usb

2- digita lsusb nel terminale: l’output deve essere qualcosa del genere:

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0915:8102 GlobeSpan, Inc. (Globespan is the name of the chipset of your modem)

3- scarica da il file eciadsl-usermode-0.11-synch-patch.tar.bz2

4- digita da shell: sudo ln -sf /bin/bash /bin/sh

5- scarica il pacchetto pppoe da
e il Build-essential da

6- estrai eciadsl-usermode-0.11-synch-patch.tar.bz2 package (click destro del muose -> estrai, opprure da terminale con tar -xyz “nomefile”). Apri il Terminal e entra nella cartella appena creata: Digita adesso:



sudo make install

7- estrai eciadsl-synch_bin.tar.bz2 dove vuoi e scrivi nel terminale:

sudo cp *.bin /etc/eciadsl/

8- adesso inizia la vera installazione del tuo modem:

sudo eciadsl-config-text

adesso devi selezionare:

-configure all settings

-id name della tua connessione

-numero del provider

-DNS (puoi lasciare vuoto)

-VPI and VCI number

-scegli il tuo corrispondente al Nortek Modem

-lascia VDI1, PDI1, VDI2, PDI2 al loro valore

-scegli il chipset GS7470 o GS7070, ALT INTERFACE for SYNCH and for PPPOECI (controlla i valori esatti per il nortek qui:

-scegli VCM_RFC2364

-premi ENTER e se tutto va a buon fine: sudo eciadsl-start fara partire il programma per la connessione. La connessione viene effettuata in 5 fasi, l’importante e che la fase di sincronizzazione (in cui lampeggia la spia verde) e di connessione al provider abbiamo successo. Alla fine dell’ eciadsl-config-text viene creato automaticamente il file eciadsl.conf in /etc/eciadsl/.

per me la migliore configurazione per il nortek è questa:





tutti gli altri valori dipendono dalla vostra connessione. E’ importante arrivate fino alla fine della configurazione con eciadsl-config-text, e solo al termine di questa fase poi andare a modificare (o anche solo controllare) il file di configurazione ove necessario.

At the end of eciadsl-config-text the program create the configuration file eciadsl.conf in /etc/eciadsl/.

According to me the best synchronization value with this modem is





all the other value depends on your internet connection.
