Azureus includes a tracker, and the "My Tracker" View, accessible through the View Menu will show both the torrents you publish and those you host.

Publish options[edit]

[Image:publish view]

The "My Torrent" context menu item "Publish" enables you to publish a torrent to your tracker's web page without hosting it. This provides a quick way of sharing a torrent with other users. The torrent's existing tracker will be used by any other users, not yours.

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]

Configure the Azureus tracker[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.

Host options[edit]

[Image:Host view]

You can host a torrent when you created it using your tracker.

Definition[edit]

  • Hosting a torrent means making your machine act as a tracker for this torrent. Azureus can host torrents through its built-in tracker.
    • hosting in passive mode will only track the torrent
    • normal hosting will be able to seed the torrent as well
  • Your tracker needs to be configured for you to host (or publish) torrents.
