Tixati 2.87 – Neowin

Tixati is a free, easy-to-use BitTorrent client offering detailed views of all seed, peer, and file transfer properties. Also included are powerful bandwidth mapping and throttling capabilities, along with a full DHT implementation. Tixati is one of the most advanced and flexible BitTorrent clients available. And unlike many other customers, Tixati contains NO SPYWARE, NO ADS, and NO GIMMICKS.

The portable version of Tixati is intended to run on a USB stick or other portable medium. It stores all of its configuration files in the same folder as the executable binaries, and all file paths are stored in a format relative to the program’s executable folder.

It is important not to delete the “tixati_portable_mode.txt” file in the executables folder. This file is what triggers Tixati to run in portable mode. (The executable binaries are actually the same as the standard edition binaries.)

When running the portable edition from a USB flash drive, especially the one formatted as FAT16 / FAT32, you may experience some lag when initially loading a new transfer. This is because initializing and allocating large files on flash media consumes more time and resources than a conventional hard drive.

Tixati has the following characteristics:

  • detailed views of all aspects of the swarm, including peers, parts, files, and trackers
  • Magnetic links support, so no need to download .torrent files if a simple magnetic link is available
  • Ultra-efficient peer choke / choke algorithms ensure the fastest downloads
  • peer connection encryption for added security
  • Full Distributed Hash Table (DHT) implementation for trackless torrents, including detailed message traffic graphics and customizable event logging
  • advanced bandwidth mapping of global traffic and traffic per transfer, with separate classification of protocol and file bytes, and with separate classification of outgoing traffic for trade and bootstrapping
  • Highly flexible bandwidth throttling including negotiation / seeding proportion adjustment and adjustable priority for individual and peer transfers
  • binary field graphs that show the completeness of all uploaded files, what other peers have, and the health of the overall swarm
  • Customizable event logging for each download and individual event logs for all peers within the swarm
  • expert local file management functions that allow you to move files to a different partition even when the download is still in progress
  • 100% compatible with BitTorrent protocol
  • Native Windows and Linux-GTK versions available
