Tixati 2.74


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

Tixati portable version is meant to run on a USB flash drive or other portable media. It stores all its configuration files in the same folder as the executable binary files, and all file paths are stored in a format relative to the program executable folder.

It is important you do not delete the "tixati_portable_mode.txt" file within 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 one that is formatted in FAT16/FAT32, you may experience some lag when initially loading a new transfer. This is because initializing and allocating large files on flash-based media consumes a greater amount of time and resources compared to a conventional hard-drive.

Tixati has the following features:

  • detailed views of all aspects of the swarm, including peers, pieces, files, and trackers
  • support for magnet links, so no need to download .torrent files if a simple magnet-link is available
  • super-efficient peer choking/unchoking algorithms ensure the fastest downloads
  • peer connection encryption for added security
  • full DHT (Distributed Hash Table) implementation for trackerless torrents, including detailed message traffic graphs and customizable event logging
  • advanced bandwidth charting of overall traffic and per-transfer traffic, with separate classification of protocol and file bytes, and with separate classification of outbound traffic for trading and seeding
  • highly flexible bandwidth throttling, including trading/seeding proportion adjustment and adjustable priority for individual transfers and peers
  • bitfield graphs that show the completeness of all downloaded files, what pieces other peers have available, 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 which allow you to move files to a different partition even while downloading is still in progress
  • 100% compatible with the BitTorrent protocol
  • Windows and Linux-GTK native versions available

Tixati 2.74 changelog:

  • added support for UDP peers, DHT, and UDP trackers over SOCKS 5 proxy that supports UDP associate command
  • revised and improved support for all other TCP over SOCKS 5 proxy
  • improved controls in Settings > Network > Proxy
  • post-shutdown tracker cleanup improved, more reliable final announce for UDP trackers
  • UDP trackers support per-transaction port binding over SOCKS 5 when using proxy-side name resolution
  • tracker error retry timing fixed so changes to network settings will reset extended retry intervals
  • fixed problems causing frequent cycling of peer connection attempts when DHT is offline
  • new option to do a redundant hash-check of completed transfers or files in Settings > Transfers > Files
  • several refinements to the post-completion sequencing of checking, move on complete, and file completion shell commands
  • better handling of missing-file situations when the 'Error on missing downloaded files' option is not enabled
  • fixed file activity stall when a file hash check is interrupted by a move operation
  • fixed display of localized dates and times on Windows systems that use Unicode for day and/or month names
  • improvements to bandwidth throttle prioritization algorithms for better accuracy under heavy connection churn
  • minor improvements to internal program closing procedures
  • UPNP/NATPMP mappings are now removed on program closing (although still using a TTL for safety incase remove fails)
  • fixed problems with some bytes per second readouts that would zero out after 20+ days of uptime
  • minor fixes to the GUI blocking mechanism that keeps modal dialogs from overriding each other
  • updated IP location tables
