Thread: Help setting up a simple tracker

  1. #1
    Hi everyone!

    Soon I'm going to need to spread a large file (3-4 GB) to a lot of people, and I thought bittorrent would be perfect, but setting up a complicated tracker script on our website seems a little overkill. Is there any other options? Are there any simple, stable and easy to install (on a Unix host) trackers out there?

    Thanks in advance!

    Btw, the best thing would be a tracker plugin for vBulletin 3.5. Is there such a plugin?

    just create a torrent, and set the tracker to one of the following:
    Code:
    http://mongo56.org:3535/announce
    http://bittorrent-support.com:2710/announce
    http://tracker.prq.to/announce
    then give the torrent to your people
    oh and don't forget to seed it

    Well, you know, this is not something I wanna spread to the whole bittorrent community, but thanks for the suggestion.

    you don't get it, as long as you don't upload the torrent to any dump sites the only people in the swarm will be the people with a copy of the torrent.

    Hmmm.. ok, now I get it. But that must be frowned upon by the people who run these trackers since we're stealing bandwidth. I guess it's negligeable. Thanks for the tips, and Filliz, I'll check out BlogTorrent.

    No, they're free public trackers.

    I just tried this, and all I get is "Connection error: timeout" from the trackers. I created a torrent in Azureus and put "http://tracker.prq.to/announce" as the announce url, but ... timeout. Maybe they don't allow people to use the tracker if the torrent isn't uploaded on their site?
