This is a private index, and you have to register before you can get full access to the site.
Before you do anything here at PornEvo we suggest you read the rules!
There are only a few rules to abide by, but we do enforce them!
Before you go any further you should read the PornEvo user agreement.
What is this bittorrent all about anyway? How do I get the files?
In short BitTorrent consists of these main components:
1: Peers or Swarm - People who are downloading/uploading particular file. (Seeders) - uploading 100% complete file, (Leechers) - are downloading & uploading incomplete file.
2: BitTorrent Client or BT Client- is the free software that actualy downloads and uploads the files, it opens (.torrent) info files and finds the (seeds & leechers) [ "uTorrent" is a great BT client software]
3: (.torrent) file - .torrent files are information files, they only contain information about where the BT Client software can download actual file from ( seeders and leechers ).
4: BitTorrent Index Sites - PornEVO.com is an index site, we list ( .torrent) infomation files that were uploaded by our members.
5: BitTorrent Tracker - is a web server that allows the BitTorrent Client Software find Peers who have the same (.torrent) info file. [the address of this server is specified inside the .torrent info file]
So the simple process is; you get the .torrent file from the PornEVO, open it with BT Client, and it downloads ! after the download is 100% complete you want to leave the client uploading to make up for the download/upload ratio!

How do i share content with others at PornEVO ?
Sharing files at PornEVO is easy!
our generous visitors will be applied mainly to our bandwidth and server costs, some portions may be applied to site development in order to improve the service.
How do I remove my copyrighted material from PornEVO?
If you are (or if you represent) the copyright owner of some material that is being distributed by one of PornEVO users, best way to remove it is to send a "Private Message" to the user who is distributing your content on the internet without your permission; ask him/her to stop distributing it and remove it from PornEVO and other places on the internet where he/she distributes your content.
Note: Our site works like a social networking site for people interested in adult content and all PornEVO members can modify and remove their profile and every individual torrent post made by the member.
But in the case the member refuses to comply with your request use our "Report a Problem" form for the listing in question, "Report a Problem" link is located on top of every post detail page. Include: Copyright owner name, infringed work name, contact e-mail address, direct link to infringement, and any additional information related to this.
Note: We can only remove listings from our site; we cannot stop individuals from distributing digital representations of your work over the internet.
I registered an account but did not receive the confirmation e-mail!
You can use this form to delete the account so you can re-register.
Note though that if you didn't receive the email the first time it will probably not
succeed the second time either so you should really try another email address.
I've lost my user name or password! Can you send it to me?
Please use this form to have the login details mailed back to you.
Can you rename my account?
We do not rename accounts. Please create a new one. (Use this form to
delete your present account.)
Can you delete my (confirmed) account?
You can do it yourself by using this form.
Help! I cannot login!? (a.k.a. Login of Death)
This problem sometimes occurs with MSIE. Close all Internet Explorer windows
and open Internet Options in the control panel. Click the Delete Cookies button.
You should now be able to login.
Why can't my friend become a member?
There is a 80.000 users limit. When that number is reached we stop accepting new members.
Accounts inactive for more than 42 days are automatically deleted, so keep trying.
(There is no reservation or queuing system, don't ask for that.)
How do I add an avatar to my profile?
First, find an image that you like, and that is within the
rules. Then you will have
to find a place to host it, such as a free imagehosting service
(popular choices are Photobucket,
All that is left to do is copy the URL you were given when
uploading it to the avatar field in your profile.
Please do not make a post just to test your avatar. If everything is allright you'll see it
in your details page.
|May I use any bittorrent client?
Yes. However, we recommend
that you avoid the following clients:
- Nova Torrent
These clients have been banned from many trackers.
Also, clients in alpha or beta version should be avoided.
Can I upload the torrents to other trackers and index sites?
Yes But...We are an index and when making your torrents you should use public bittorrent trackers; which will make the torrent usable with any torrent index site.
But we are a private community of users with common interests and we strive to weed out the unparticipating users who do not contribute to the community, by doing this we improve the quality and quantity of the material posted on our site. But it is your choice how and where you distrbute your torrents.
(Note, private trackers with seed/leecher ratios are ineffective since it is too easy to cheat and inflate your ratio;) Bit torrent as well as other p2p networks ultimately depend on the honesty of the individual using the technology.)
Why did an active torrent suddenly disappear?
There may be three reasons for this:
(1) The torrent may have been out-of-sync with the site
(2) The uploader may have deleted it because it was a bad release.
A replacement will probably be uploaded to take its place.
(3) Torrents are automatically deleted after 28 days of inactivity.
How do I resume a broken download or reseed something?
Open the .torrent file. When your client asks you for a location, choose the location of
the existing file(s) and it will resume/reseed the torrent.
Why do my downloads sometimes stall at 99%?
The more pieces you have, the harder it becomes to find peers who have pieces you are missing.
That is why downloads sometimes slow down or even stall when there are just a few percent remaining.
Just be patient and you will, sooner or later, get the remaining pieces.
What are these "a piece has failed an hash check" messages?
Bittorrent clients check the data they receive for integrity. When a piece fails this check it is
automatically re-downloaded. Occasional hash fails are a common occurrence, and you shouldn't worry.
Some clients have an (advanced) option/preference to 'kick/ban clients that send you bad data' or
similar. It should be turned on, since it makes sure that if a peer repeatedly sends you pieces that
fail the hash check it will be ignored in the future.
The torrent is supposed to be 100MB. How come I downloaded 120MB?
See the hash fails topic. If your client receives bad data it will have to redownload it, therefore
the total downloaded may be larger than the torrent size. Make sure the "kick/ban" option is turned on
to minimize the extra downloads.
Why do I get a "Not authorized (xx h) - READ THE FAQ!" error?
From the time that each new torrent is uploaded to the tracker, there is a period of time that
some users must wait before they can download it.
This delay in downloading will only affect users with a low ratio, and users with low upload amounts.
||and/or upload below
||and/or upload below
||and/or upload below
||and/or upload below
"And/or" means any or both. Your delay will be the largest one for which you meet at least one condition.
This applies to new users as well, so opening a new account will not help. Note also that this
works at tracker level, you will be able to grab the .torrent file itself at any time.
The delay applies only to leeching, not to seeding. If you got the files from any other source and
wish to seed them you may do so at any time irrespectively of your ratio or total uploaded.
N.B. Due to some users exploiting the 'no-delay-for-seeders' policy we had to change it. The delay
now applies to both seeding and leeching. So if you are subject to a delay and get the files from
some other source you will not be able to seed them until the delay has elapsed.
What's this "IOError - [Errno13] Permission denied" error?
If you just want to fix it reboot your computer, it should solve the problem.
Otherwise read on.
IOError means Input-Output Error, and that is a file system error, not a tracker one.
It shows up when your client is for some reason unable to open the partially downloaded
torrent files. The most common cause is two instances of the client to be running
the last time the client was closed it somehow didn't really close but kept running in the
background, and is therefore still
locking the files, making it impossible for the new instance to open them.
A more uncommon occurrence is a corrupted FAT. A crash may result in corruption
that makes the partially downloaded files unreadable, and the error ensues. Running
scandisk should solve the problem. (Note that this may happen only if you're running
Windows 9x - which only support FAT - or NT/2000/XP with FAT formatted hard drives.
NTFS is much more robust and should never permit this problem.)
How can I improve my download speed?
The download speed mostly depends on the seeder-to-leecher ratio (SLR). Poor download speed is
mainly a problem with new and very popular torrents where the SLR is low.
(Proselytising sidenote: make sure you remember that you did not enjoy the low speed.
Seed so that others will not endure the same.)
There are a couple of things that you can try on your end to improve your speed:
Do not immediately jump on new torrents
In particular, do not do it if you have a slow connection. The best speeds will be found around the
half-life of a torrent, when the SLR will be at its highest. (The downside is that you will not be able to seed
so much. It's up to you to balance the pros and cons of this.)
Limit your upload speed
The upload speed affects the download speed in essentially two ways:
The full effect is a combination of the two. The upload should be kept as high as possible while allowing the
ACKs to get through without delay. A good thumb rule is keeping the upload at about 80% of the theoretical
upload speed. You will have to fine tune yours to find out what works best for you. (Remember that keeping the
upload high has the additional benefit of helping with your ratio.)
- Bittorrent peers tend to favour those other peers that upload to them. This means that if A and B
are leeching the same torrent and A is sending data to B at high speed then B will try to reciprocate.
So due to this effect high upload speeds lead to high download speeds.
- Due to the way TCP works, when A is downloading something from B it has to keep telling B that
it received the data sent to him. (These are called acknowledgements - ACKs -, a sort of "got it!" messages).
If A fails to do this then B will stop sending data and wait. If A is uploading at full speed there may be no
bandwidth left for the ACKs and they will be delayed. So due to this effect excessively high upload speeds lead
to low download speeds.
If you are running more than one instance of a client it is the overall upload speed that you must take into account.
Some clients (e.g. Azureus) limit global upload speed, others (e.g. Shad0w's) do it on a per torrent basis.
Know your client. The same applies if you are using your connection for anything else (e.g. browsing or ftp),
always think of the overall upload speed.
Limit the number of simultaneous connections
Some operating systems (like Windows 9x) do not deal well with a large number of connections, and may even crash.
Also some home routers (particularly when running NAT and/or firewall with stateful inspection services) tend to become
slow or crash when having to deal with too many connections. There are no fixed values for this, you may try 60 or 100
and experiment with the value. Note that these numbers are additive, if you have two instances of
a client running the numbers add up.
Limit the number of simultaneous uploads
Isn't this the same as above? No. Connections limit the number of peers your client is talking to and/or
downloading from. Uploads limit the number of peers your client is actually uploading to. The ideal number is
typically much lower than the number of connections, and highly dependent on your (physical) connection.
Just give it some time
As explained above peers favour other peers that upload to them. When you start leeching a new torrent you have
nothing to offer to other peers and they will tend to ignore you. This makes the starts slow, in particular if,
by change, the peers you are connected to include few or no seeders. The download speed should increase as soon
as you have some pieces to share.
Why is my browsing so slow while leeching?
Your download speed is always finite. If you are a peer in a fast torrent it will almost certainly saturate your
download bandwidth, and your browsing will suffer. At the moment there is no client that allows you to limit the
download speed, only the upload. You will have to use a third-party solution,
such as NetLimiter.
Browsing was used just as an example, the same would apply to gaming, IMing, etc...
My ISP uses a transparent proxy. What should I do?
Caveat: This is a large and complex topic. It is not possible to cover all variations here.
Short reply: change to an ISP that does not force a proxy upon you. If you cannot or do not want to then read on.
What is a proxy?
Basically a middleman. When you are browsing a site through a proxy your requests are sent to the proxy and the proxy
forwards them to the site instead of you connecting directly to the site. There are several classifications
(the terminology is far from standard):
||A transparent proxy is one that needs no configuration on the clients. It works by automatically redirecting all port 80 traffic to the proxy. (Sometimes used as synonymous for non-anonymous.)
||Clients must configure their browsers to use them.
||The proxy sends no client identification to the server. (HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR header is not sent; the server does not see your IP.)
| Highly Anonymous
||The proxy sends no client nor proxy identification to the server. (HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR, HTTP_VIA and HTTP_PROXY_CONNECTION headers are not sent; the server doesn't see your IP and doesn't even know you're using a proxy.)
A transparent proxy may or may not be anonymous, and there are several levels of anonymity.
How do I find out if I'm behind a (transparent/anonymous) proxy?
Try ProxyJudge. It lists the HTTP headers that the server where it is running
received from you. The relevant ones are HTTP_CLIENT_IP, HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR and REMOTE_ADDR.
Why am I listed as not connectable even though I'm not NAT/Firewalled?
The PornEvo tracker is quite smart at finding your real IP, but it does need the proxy to send the HTTP header
HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR. If your ISP's proxy does not then what happens is that the tracker will interpret the proxy's IP
address as the client's IP address. So when you login and the tracker tries to connect to your client to see if you are
NAT/firewalled it will actually try to connect to the proxy on the port your client reports to be using for
incoming connections. Naturally the proxy will not be listening on that port, the connection will fail and the
tracker will think you are NAT/firewalled.
Can I bypass my ISP's proxy?
If your ISP only allows HTTP traffic through port 80 or blocks the usual proxy ports then you would need to use something
like socks and that is outside the scope of this FAQ.
The site accepts connections on port 81 besides the usual 80, and using them may be enough to fool some proxies. So the first
thing to try should be connecting to http://www.pornevo.com:81. Note that even if this works your bt client will still try
to connect to port 80 unless you edit the announce url in the .torrent file.
Otherwise you may try the following:
- Choose any public non-anonymous proxy that does not use port 80
(e.g. from this,
- Configure your computer to use that proxy. For Windows XP, do Start, Control Panel, Internet Options,
Connections, LAN Settings, Use a Proxy server, Advanced and type in the IP and port of your chosen
proxy. Or from Internet Explorer use Tools, Internet Options, ...
- (Facultative) Visit ProxyJudge. If you see an HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR in
the list followed by your IP then everything should be ok, otherwise choose another proxy and try again.
- Visit PornEvo. Hopefully the tracker will now pickup your real IP (check your profile to make sure).
Notice that now you will be doing all your browsing through a public proxy, which are typically quite slow.
Communications between peers do not use port 80 so their speed will not be affected by this, and should be better than when
you were "unconnectable".
How do I make my bittorrent client use a proxy?
Just configure Windows XP as above. When you configure a proxy for Internet Explorer you're actually configuring a proxy for
all HTTP traffic (thank Microsoft and their "IE as part of the OS policy" ). On the other hand if you use another
browser (Opera/Mozilla/Firefox) and configure a proxy there you'll be configuring a proxy just for that browser. We don't
know of any BT client that allows a proxy to be specified explicitly.
Why can't I signup from behind a proxy?
It is our policy not to allow new accounts to be opened from behind a proxy.
Does this apply to other torrent sites?
This section was written for PornEvo, a closed, port 80-81 tracker. Other trackers may be open or closed, and many listen
on e.g. ports 6868 or 6969. The above does not necessarily apply to other trackers.
Why can't I connect? Is the site blocking me?
Your failure to connect may be due to several reasons.
Maybe my address is blacklisted?
The site blocks addresses listed in the (former) PeerGuardian
database, as well as addresses of banned users. This works at Apache/PHP level, it's just a script that
blocks logins from those addresses. It should not stop you from reaching the site. In particular
it does not block lower level protocols, you should be able to ping/traceroute the server even if your
address is blacklisted. If you cannot then the reason for the problem lies elsewhere.
If somehow your address is indeed blocked in the PG database do not contact us about it, it is not our
policy to open ad hoc exceptions. You should clear your IP with the database maintainers instead.
Your ISP blocks the site's address
(In first place, it's unlikely your ISP is doing so. DNS name resolution and/or network problems are the usual culprits.)
There's nothing we can do.
You should contact your ISP (or get a new one). Note that you can still visit the site via a proxy, follow the instructions
in the relevant section. In this case it doesn't matter if the proxy is anonymous or not, or which port it listens to.
Notice that you will always be listed as an "unconnectable" client because the tracker will be unable to
check that you're capable of accepting incoming connections.
Alternate port (81)
Some of torrents may use ports other than the usual HTTP port 80. This may cause problems for some users,
for instance those behind some firewall or proxy configurations.
You can easily solve this by editing the .torrent file yourself with any torrent editor, e.g.
and replacing the announce url http://www.pornevo.com:81 with http://www.pornevo.com:80 or just http://www.pornevo.com.
Editing the .torrent with Notepad is not recommended. It may look like a text file, but it is in fact
a bencoded file. If for some reason you must use a plain text editor, change the announce url to
http://www.pornevo.com:80, not http://www.pornevo.com. (If you're thinking about changing the number before the
announce url instead, you know too much to be reading this.)
