OK-let's kill this post-I'm done-this is like going to the dentist without anathesia....If anyone can download it good luck.
I swear on this day I will never ever ask another question about torrent and will never ever again waste my time with it-no idea which ports are open or closed-no idea how to find out which ports are open-no idea how to seed my own torrent
Thank you and goodnight!

I don't understand why you don't want to learn.
Read the answers, they give you enough pointers to solve the problem.

I don't want to learn?
Where in any of the answers did you see where it says-find your open port how-to-I didn't see it...
I spent all day today-my day off-reading useless webpage after webpage-I can download a torrent but I dont need to-I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO BECOME A SEED-every time I try it's either "guess which of the 10,000 ports is open" or I add the info to seed and nothing happens-it just sits there doing nothing-Obviously if I can download a torrent the reverse should automatically work.
No one should have to go through this much trouble to set up ANYTHING!
Linux is so "security" minded it's ridiculous-everything requires a password-that's stupid and useless to a single user computer-even running as root almost all distro's keep asking for a damn password when you want to do something.
It's overkill and obsessively anal.
The issue is that it should be a simple "i want to add my bandwidth to seed this torrent" and I click 2-3 buttons-BAM it works-That's how it should be.
My ip provider is not stopping it, my router/modem is not stopping it-it's the idiot/idiots who somehow made it so difficult you gotta have a degree in anal-retentiveness to do it.
Firewalls and other BS-throw the viruses my way-I'll just wipe the HD and move on-what's the issue?
I guarantee you if I still had XP it would've already done it automagically and we wouldn't be here. And I hate XP-but at least it "just works"!

I was reading through your posts and ... at the end there you are absolutely positive that its not your router. Is upnp enabled? I'd troubleshoot the router and create your machine as a DMZ host. Then if it works then set up a virtual server in your router and forward your ports in and out. The torrent should use the ports specified in by the client.

That's the only thing I can see that would be a problem. I tried your torrent I cannot get a seed. Meaning that your firewall,router etc... is preventing connection.

I'd setup a DMZ on the router and try to narrow it down. If it still doesn't work then its either the torrent client config or torrent isn't configured correctly

I really don't know if it's my router-I have a direct connection-(dhcp) with the modem mentioned earlier. I don't know what upnp is or DMZ (I'm a newbie) I know earlier in slackware 12.2 it worked for a while and ran at 40kbs, i am in Ubuntu 8.10 now and I don't run any firewall-never have-even when I had XP I didn't have either a firewall or antivirus.
I am now reading the link posted earlier here-it's making sense and I did not know the steps outlined about I have to begin the seeding process for the iso.
( http://www.mepis.org/docs/en/index.p...ting_a_torrent )
I'm trying gang and I appreciate all your help.
I am already pissed off today because for the last 3 days Sears Automotive has had my mother's car-all they had to do was install 4 new struts, 4 tires and an alignment-Well they have royally screwed it up so bad and charged a $1000 for it.
Yesterday they gave us the car saying it's fixed-We drive it away and I immiedietly notice a jarring/banging noise from the rear passenger strut, then I go over a speed bump and the drivers side front strut goes "BAM" as it bottoms out.
I pull over and open the hatchback to check the back struts, the guy had put the nut on the top of the strut and crossthreaded it, but it was only holding by the 1st couple of threads-so basically the strut hadn't been tightened down at all and the idiot had crossthreaded it too. To make things worse-the top of the strut shaft has a square tang so you can hold the shaft static while you tighten the nut-this guy hadn't even gotten the nut on there enough to put a vise-grip on the tang-the nut is basically even with the top of the shaft-meaning now it can't be either tightened or loosened without vise-gripping the strut shaft itself-which scratches the mirror finish on the strut-destroying it.
The other side of the rear strut was installed correctly and had about "2 of the shaft sticking up above the nut.
OK-highly pissed off now I open the hood and check the front struts-I immiedietely notice a difference between the drivers side and passenger side-the drivers side nut is tightened so much that the strut is about 90% compressed and so when you hit a bump it bottoms out-"BAM"!
I push down on the fender on the drivers side and it's so tight I can't even get it to bounce.
The passenger side is too loose and the nut only sticks up above the shaft about 1.5".
This is outrageous for a $1000!
So I take it back and complain-the guy who does the work comes over and says in a loud tone that he's been doing this for 20 years and it was done right and is how it should be-I must've turned really really pale with rage at this point because the manager tries in vain to intervene but it's too late-I rip into the guy that I'm a half-ass not-ASE certified mechanic and any idiot would know it's wrong and I have changed struts myself-I told him your supposed to use a "torque wrench" assh%%e! The nut's are all supposed to be tightened to a specified ft/lbs reading (Der!?)-Obviously that was not the case!
I was so enraged I could barely speak. His manager should've fired him on the spot for yelling at a customer who was clearly right-but no this weasel assures me "we'll fix it sir"-shit!
Now-there supposed to have it ready in the morning-that will be 4 days and $1000 for four struts and four tires-and this is Sears-not Earl Scheib's!
Sorry-I had to vent!
Anyway-I'm going to read this tutorial (torrent!) and hit the bong...hack!

I'm not much of a mechanic... but I can change struts, brakes, pumps, belts, headers.. etc... I think I could have done a better job with a manual and some tools and a jack.

I take it that you dont have a router... just a modem from the ISP. then disregard my post. I dont think your a newbie... you've successfully installed Slackware.

Sometimes a toke or two helps the nerves... I haven't been that way since I was in Thailand. Knocked me out ...

OK-it's now in the alive category-don't know when or if anyone will try to download it...Really I no longer have any idea whether anything is working or not-says the tracker is good-I did every thing according to this tutorial-but it's just doing nothing...

Here's the output for nmap-note the open torrent port and the tracker url also checks out-so now what could be wrong??
