Hi: I downloaded a torrent some time ago, and want now to upload back the torrent. I have the .torrent and the files, these in the same hierarcical structure (same relative tree) as when just downloaded. How do I do now to upload them to the torrent? OK. I guess if I put in a directory:
and run ktorrent, it will begin to upload if I tell him not to download, and as long as I did not change the file names. Is this true?
Kernel 126.96.36.199 Slackware 12.0 KTorrent 2.2.4 (using KDE 3.5.7)
Not sure if 13.37 will give you the import option (I run current)
You can do it the old way of loading the torrent file normally (make sure you have allocate files turned on) let it start and then stop it.
Close ktorrent and copy your good files over the ones it just created then restart ktorrent.
Then right click on the torrent and hit "check data" and it should go from 0% to 100% complete, you can then start it again and it will seed normally.
This is not about the general case we were speaking about: I was downloading, Ktorrent (2.2.4) finished the download and it went on seeding at good velocity because now I told him: upload velocity= infinity. What happened: afterwards I quit the client in the normal way, hoping to proceed the upload in the point I had left it. But now upload speed= 0 and zero it remaind forever! Why? When downloading, I can boot without quiting Ktorrent and next time I find it resuming the download. Is it different with the seeding?
OK. Problem solved putting a lot of torrents into Ktorrent. At least one of the now seeds. The probability of at least one of them begin seeding is larger. Period.
When you say BT (bittorrent) are you implying Ktorrent too? For that's the client I'm using. Now, how can it be that, re-running KTorrent, it forgets I was seeding some files and shows an empty window?
When I say bittorrent I mean all of them as the protocol itself is called that and it behaves in a certain way across all programs that use it.
With the empty window does your version have a pane on the left that allows you to show only certain torrents? And it has "All Torrents" at the top? If you do then try selecting "All Torrents"
If I really care about this stuff, I should be getting familiar with the terminology and with my program's manual. Unfortunately the program has help, but when clicking, it does not find index.html, which is not in the package. And help in the web, would have to refer to my version, a rather dificult thing.
Really, the bad thing about this program or its installation is it lack of manuals or help. It's done for one who knows p2p protocols. And that I am going to learn, in its basics. As to your question, therefore, do not bother to continue posting here. I must learn first. Thank you so much for all your posts and regards.
