I'm fairly new to the whole downloading thing, and I recently stumbled across torrents. I understand the process, peer to peer sharing. However, in light of some of the content available, it seems keeping your IP private would be advantageous. I've seen TorrentPrivacy software, and that looks interesting, but I'm not well versed enough to know if that really offers adequate protection. Is there a "right" way to download and/or upload materials that will help keep you out of trouble? Besides legal trouble, I don't want to purposefully make my entire hard drive available somehow to someone else. Comments and advice would be greatly appreciated.
