Today we’re going to show you how to install and use Transmission BitTorrent client on a Virtual6 Virtual Machine. A torrent file is a file, generally downloaded from the internet, that contains metadata about a collection of files and folders which are to be distributed amongst users. The torrent file also contains a list of unique IP addresses which are the physical locations of the torrent trackers. Trackers are generally dedicated servers that essentially help other users in the system find each other and form efficient distribution groups called which are sometimes called swarms.
Plex allows you to aggregate all your personal media and access it anywhere you go. Enjoy your own media on all your devices with the Plex Media Server.
Virtual6 have recognised the demand for a Virtual Machine tailored towards Plex Media Server. We understand that not many VPS offer the resources required to run a Plex Media Server smoothly, even our own Virtual Machine range. For that reason, we’re proud to announce our trial run of what we’re calling the Plex VM. By trial, we don’t mean that the service will disappear if there’s no interest, by trial we mean we’re limiting the amount of stock available primarily.
The resources are as follows:
- 500GB RAID-1 HDD
- 2 x 2.66GHz Dedicated vCPU core(s)
- 4GB DDR3 ECC RAM
- Unmetered Data, 60Mbps Network Port
- France Datacenter (Excluded from our SLA)
- 1 x IPV4 Address & IPV6 Available
- £9.99 PCM, £2.31 One Time Setup Fee – Contact us to purchase
Servers are delivered with Ubuntu 16.04 Desktop pre-configured, with FireFox web browser, Transmission BitTorrent Client, Plex Media Server and Open SSH Daemon pre-installed. This setup allows you to acquire your media using SFTP or BitTorrent to use with Plex Media Server. You’re free to install whatever else you may need.
