go into the thread you created - your torrent thread

Clear the Torrent File from your torrent client (remove it..you are starting fresh)>
Select your torrent file pasted in your thread>
point the torrent to the existing directory on your hard drive>
torrent client will check the files & begin seeding out

-its only difficult the first time.. you will be fine

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.

Re: I am either too tired or yeah I am too tired

I've tried that, and I even tried downloading uTorrent(recommended by a few members) and that looks just as confusing too. Plus, now its telling me I got a problem with my "port" I had that issue over at DIME, and pretty much that is too difficult, my router is a Seimens, and the default passwords dont work.
This too much to take in.

Re: I am either too tired or yeah I am too tired

I would not worry about your ports right now. As a seeder, it isn't quite as important that you not be firewalled. So, let worry about getting you connected.

- First, stop the torrent (red square)
- Now, delete the torrent from bittorrent (red X)
- Now go into Preferences and make sure it is NOT set to always download to the same folder automatically.
- Now go to the thread and click on the torrent file and save it to your harddrive (note where it is being saved)
- Now go to that torrent and double-click it to start it
- BitTorrent should ask you where you want to save the files (if it doesn't, then you didn't do the third step)
- Tell it where your folder is that you picked to make the torrent file
- It will say something like "Are you sure you want to put them there? There are already files there." Say Yes
- It will then go through and verify that you have 100% of the torrent
- Now it should go into Seeding Mode. If it doesn't, you may have to select that torrent in the BitTorrent Window and then select the Green arrow to tell it to start.


Go through these steps and if something doesn't work right, let me know what step you are having problems on.

- First, stop the torrent (red square) yup i got that part done
- Now, delete the torrent from bittorrent (red X)ditto
- Now go into Preferences and make sure it is NOT set to always download to the same folder automatically.this is where i probablly scew itall up
- Now go to the thread and click on the torrent file and save it to your harddrive (note where it is being saved) other issue is, now uTorrent is trying to do it and the Bittorrent is trying it also.
- Now go to that torrent and double-click it to start ithaven't gotten here cuz of the other crap
- BitTorrent should ask you where you want to save the files (if it doesn't, then you didn't do the third step)see above answer
- Tell it where your folder is that you picked to make the torrent filei've probally told it everywhere on my hardrive at this point, not sure where the right one is anymore.(seriously)
- It will say something like "Are you sure you want to put them there? There are already files there." Say Yesdo not pass go, do not collect $200 (where's the get out jail free card and community chest when you need them?)
- It will then go through and verify that you have 100% of the torrent(definitely not in Kansas anymore)
- Now it should go into Seeding Mode. If it doesn't, you may have to select that torrent in the BitTorrent Window and then select the Green arrow to tell it to start.(you want it when?? )

Re: I am either too tired or yeah I am too tired

Hey, I just noticed a "wrinkle" in my torrent. When I first got it up on the tracker, but didn't seed it. It is listed that the file size is 39.9KB which is incorrect. All the torrent files on my hard drive are for 40KB in size, and I have a feeling that is why all the leechers are stuck at 99.95%

Is there a way I can edit that, without starting over from scratch??

Can it still have the same name? Does the old one get stopped? I was gonna wait till I got home from work to do it. I noticed that only one person is under 99.95% so I figured that would the best time to redo it. once he get to that point as well.

Keep everything the same. Make sure you close all the files in the folder. You may remove the .torrent file from the folder though. Then make a new torrent, but make sure to save the .torrent file in a known place. Now go rename it with a "fixed" on the end (like "Van Morrison fixed.torrent"). Now go re-upload the show. Download the torrent file from the thread to your desktop. Start that torrent, select the Van Morrison folder as the place to save it and it should go through and verify the files and go into seed mode.
