OK I have read the HowTo here
and I have also watched the tutorial video here
but I cannot get my torrents to Upload to anyone (or Download from my home computer to another). I am not sure if it is a port issue, or a UDP-something, or....?
I am using KTorrent and I want to make a .torrent of photos and then email the .torrent to a friend and have them download those photos via BitTorrent. Unfortunately, in my download test, I have "0(1)" Peers (zero connected, one in swarm - the host) but my client won't connect to it; I have "0(0)" in my Seeds column (meaning my home host machine isn't seeding my torrent). I've tried this using Azureus at home also, but the same result - no seeding so the clients cannot connect to it.
My guess is that it wants a central Tracker or Repository or something, but I don't want to do that...
Any good way to go about this without giving in to the man? uTorrent on Windows allows it (watch the video link above...)
