I tried creating a new torrent, using uTorrent, following the directions from torrentfreak. I used a bunch of trackers (just in case any individual one was having troubles) and uTorrent shows it as "seeding" with 100% of the file. It shows: seeds 0(1), peers 0(0).
I've also attempted to remove the torrent and then re-add the torrent, pointing it to my already existing files, forcing uTorrent to recheck the files and then begin seeding.
Yet when I share the .torrent file with my other computer and attempt to download, it is unable to find any peers or seeds.
To confirm that both clients are working, I downloaded a torrent on both computers, using their respective clients, using torrents I found on isohunt. This tells me that there must be something wrong in how I'm creating my torrents.
When you create a torrent, you are the only seed until some peers start downloading your file, once they have a full copy they will be added to the number of seeds available.
Did you open/check the ports forwarded on your router to accommodate your torrent clients?
Your clients should be configured to use a port of your choice in this range= 49160–65534
I don't know a lot about torrents, i am just a user, have utorrent, i search the web and download torrents using it.
What i want now is to create torrents and share my files with others, whats steps i should follow?
Actually, you can create a torrent file with utorrent. Then you have to upload it to a tracker, and then redownload the tweaked torrent file (it will contain the tracker information). After it you just simply keep seeding for users.
Jeff himself actually blogged about this when setting up the torrent for the StackOverflow database. He posted the how to here
