    Default Connecting to my torrent client (I use it for legal stuff only!)


    It summer and I am messing around with a little project of mine.
    I am building a program (maybe app later on) to remotely
    handle my torrents (only free torrents!).

    For example:

    If I type this url (http://username:password@iport/gui/?...&s=torrentlink)

    in the browser the movie gets in my client/starts downloading. I want this to happen by my program.

    import java.io.IOException;
    import java.net.MalformedURLException;
    import java.net.URL;
    import java.net.URLConnection;
    public class Connection {
    private String ip;
    private String port;
    private String username;
    private String password;
    public Connection(String ip, String port, String username, String password) {
    this.ip = ip;
    this.port = port;
    this.username = username;
    this.password = password;
    connect(this.ip, this.port);
    private void connect(String ip, String port) {
    try {
    URL myURL = new URL("http://username:password@iport/gui/?action=add-url&s=torrentlink");
    URLConnection myURLConnection = myURL.openConnection();
    catch (MalformedURLException e) {
    System.out.println("failed connection");
    catch (IOException e) {
    System.out.println("failed connection");
    } }

    This is what I already have, i am sure it connects but it doesn't add the torrent to my program

    Does somebody know what I need to add for it to work?

    I use it for legal stuff only!

    Thanks in advance!
