    good day all,

    i am using uTorrent v. 2.2.1 I have followed the guides i have found here, as well as a cool video guide on YouTube, and of course the uTorrent help page. I have, to the best of my knowledge created 3 different torrents now. I added trackers, some say they are working, and I have e-mailed the torrent to the intended recipient. 1 person. However, when that person opens the torrent it shows 0/1 seeds and 0/1 peers. he gets no connection to me. Last night when i tried this, someone connected and began to download my torrent. How is that if I only e-mailed it to one person? I verified and my friend still shows 0 data transfer.

    any advice would be great. I would love to talk to someone who has done this and made it work. I am in the military and will be deploying again in a few months. This is hopefully going to be my plan for sharing videos and pictures of my family while I'm gone. I'd like to see my kids grow up, since I wont be there.

    THank you all for your time, patience, and responses.

    Grass

    Dont use open trackers for private torrents that might be the problem and look at the speed guide for utorrent on tiptogeek.com
    Or you could use sendoid for secured and private sharing.

    I would look into gigatribe or some other dark net app. They are pretty fast and fairly simple to use, way easier than what you are trying to do and for what? A dark net is the perfect way to share photos, videos and what ever if you already know everyone in the network. For Gigatribe you email an invite which will have a gigatribe install link and instructions how to proceed. Only persons in your network will be able to access your stuff. As the name implies, they are completely stealthy. I have a friend in the video business. He darknets all his videos even though the clients are usually 10 15 minutes away.

    If you want to send large files to someone here are a few in this link that works good.I use the Pondo Email to send large files to my friends in the Philippines and in Saudi Arabia.I live in the USA.I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for but it works.Both parties have to have the program installed for it to work.

    Grass, locate the directory or file you want to share, then put in a tracker like
    udp://tracker.openbittorrent.com:80/announce
    udp://tracker.publicbt.com:80/announce
    (Vuze has options for a personal tracker made for the reason you need)
    Check the 'start seeding' box and click "Create and save as"


    Also, there are other programs for sharing files that are more for your purpose. For instance, a program where you invite a friend to join you in a room or you allow them to see your shared files.
