Are you one of those torrenters thought it was a hard & technical thing to make a torrent? That is just a myth - It is in fact [bold]simple[/bold]! If you have a lot of media content on your PC, whether it be music, video, or games - it can only benefit the Bittorrent community. I have pieced together here a guide that I hope will benefit you and show you the ease in which it is to create a torrent, and hopefully help you to increase the amount of files available! I will show you how to create using [bold]Azureus[/bold] (my personal recommendation) [bold]Before I do this, though, I would like to point out that (if you haven't already), you should install peerguardian2. It is a software which blocks out I.P addresses of a lot of major corporations, the sort of corporations that you could get sued by should be caught uploading their software.[/bold] The download of peerguardian can be found here; http://phoenixlabs.org/pg2/ And so we begin... - Open Azureus, then 1. Hit the `File` tab at the top of the window. Cilck on `Create a Torrent`. 2. In the box next to `Announce URL`, put in the URL of the tracker you are using. Note this is [bold]not[/bold] the same as the main URL for the site. Each site has it's own upload section and the tracker URL will usually be listed there. [bold]Note that [bold]most[/bold] (not all) tracker URLs end in `announce.php`[/bold] 3. Uncheck `Add Multi-Tracker information to the torrent`[bold] and [/bold]`Add hashes for other networks` (e.g. Gnutella2, eDonkey2000). 4. Depending on if your torrent consists of a Single file or a whole Directory, select one of the two options. Let's assume we are making a torrent out of a directory for the rest of this tutorial. The steps are the same for a single file only instead of choosing a [bold]directory[/bold] you choose a [bold]single file[/bold]. 5. The comment field is open for you to type in what ever you feel is necessary. But it is better to maybe put a release date and some details about the torrent, rather than just putting ripped by (your internet tag) - because that doesn't really help anyone. Once you have done this, click `Next`. 6. Next you choose your file/directory you want to share. Click on the Browse button and browse to the file/directory you want to share. Click on it, then click OK/Open. Then Click Next. 7. Choose where you are going to save the torrent file you are creating (the one you need to upload). I suggest you create a folder dedicated to your torrent folders, so you know where your torrent files are. 8. Now save the torrent there (click Finish on the Azureus `Make a torrent window`). Don't mess with the Piece Size. Azureus will select the most appropriate size for you. (Unless you know exactly what you're doing). It can make things really difficult for peers if you make the pieces too big or too small. 9. Azureus will now `hash` the files. When it's done you will get a message that says Saving File... File saved. Click on the Close button.
