Definition[edit]

  • When you publish a torrent, you list a torrent on the tracker's web page; the .torrent file is published on the site without you hosting it. Users of the file will rely on the torrent's existing tracker.
  • Your tracker must be configured correctly for you to publish (or host) torrents.

How To[edit]

Publish torrents[edit]

Right-click on the torrent in Azureus and choose Publish.

Comments[edit]

The difference between hosting and publishing is this
  • When you host a torrent, peers connect to you -- the tracker -- to obtain information about other peers;
  • When you publish a torrent, you only put the .torrent file that you found elsewhere on your tracker webpage.
