This is nuts.
The .torrent file you upload to the server cannot be used to seed the torrent. This is because the file gets modified by the tracker once you upload it and the tracker will NOT recognize the original file ever again as a valid .torrent file.

Once you upload the initial .torrent file, you just download the file from the thread like a normal leecher would, except you 'point' the 'save as...' location to the folder that has all the data in it. The tornet client see it, verifies to 100% and you become a (nearly) instant seed.
