A huge amount of lawsuits over file-sharing and the means used to obtain data made Internet users throughout the world concerned about the safety of their information. Consequently, new methods of hiding the identities have been developed within the past few months, one of them being “Anonymous” downloads.
China’s BitComet implemented the same feature, because its importance in the file-sharing community has been increasing over the years. BitComet’s VIP service finally offers full support for anonymous downloads in order to help users protect their safety. In addition, the program’s development team successfully managed to bring the client to new heights, releasing the first of all major BitTorrent clients x64 bits stable version a month ago. By the way, that version allows for larger disk caches.
Now BitComet introduced a VIP-downloading feature, which allowed users to download torrents wither higher speed, as they were accelerated by BitComet’s servers. In other words, the users now have a high-speed seedbox accelerating the downloading process of healthy swarms. Finally, since the early June, the VIP service has been offering anonymous downloading too. Now the client’s VIP servers will hide their users’ IPs.
The spokesperson for the application explained that once VIP members enabled anonymous downloads, their remote servers would initiate all peer and tracker communications and download the content on behalf of the VIP member, preventing the user’s actual IP address from being shared with any of the peers or trackers. Meanwhile, the BitComet’s VIP servers are actually state of the art commercial servers on a few of the world’s fastest connections, with no imposed speed limits, and the only account restrictions being on a flat-rate basis.
Currently the feature is only available as a free trial and to those users who agree to pay for having their identities safe. The Chinese client offers its users plans with 10GB and 100GB limits for $4.99 and $19.99 accordingly. In the meantime, anonymous downloads are only supported by the latest Beta versions of the application. Since the introduction of the feature, a huge demand for VIP accounts has been registered, so the client’s servers barely survived. In the nearest future, the anonymous feature will be included into the next stable version of the client if no major bugs are found.

|lol yea ther's nothin such as “Anonymous” File-Sharing Client|
It doesn't exist and infact that client will be tracing all the ip's instead of keeping it anonymous .

|So what's wrong with BitComet incorporating a VPN into their service? I may have missed the point but isn't that the same when both run thro' their servers? @ menahunie, how many bedrooms? lol|
