Thumbs down opentracker in debian

I created three virtual machines so that I can try bittorent application. In machine one I configured opentracker, in maching two transmission and in machine three I want to download the a torrent file from machine 2. i have successfully done the first to, created a torrent file in machine two and the tracker has known about it.
when I tried to download the torrent file i created I got the following security question
The authenticity of host ' (' can't be established.

RSA key fingerprint is fe:98:7b:d8:b0:5c:75:80:11:3e:79:f3:70:33:0b:e2.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)?

I typed yes and Enter.
I put the password and got

file.torrent 100% 22KB 21.7KB/s 00:00

But the download does not work for some reason i can not understand.
My question here is:
1. Has the connection established when I approve by writing 'yes'?
2. As i am trying using a virtual machine, i do not have security concern and how can i disable the shh or RSA thing. I want to connect with not security check as i think this could be the reason preventing the download.

Thank you

I think you've only downloaded the torrent file, which contains only the torrent's metadata. (I'm having a hard time following exactly what you've done though)
If you want to download the content to machine 3, you will need a bit torrent client to process the torrent file!.
The torrent file will have the extention .torrent
looking again, the torrent file in your example is file.torrent
You will need to open this with a bit torrent client on the same machine.
