There are two kinds of trackers, closed and open. With a closed tracker you usually have to upload the torrent file on a website. With open trackers you don't need to do anything other than specify the URLs of the trackers when you create the torrent file. > Can ctorrent seed torrents, or do I need another program for that? I would imagine so, or you wouldn't be able to seed after downloading. With most clients you can place the file or directory in the download location, load the torrent file and then tell the client to verify the download. It'll then detect that it's complete and switch to seeding. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
