    just create a torrent, and set the tracker to the following:
    Code:
    http://tracker.prq.to/announce
    then give the torrent to your people
    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.
    you don't need to upload the torrent to the tracker, you just need to seed the torrent to activate them on the tracker
    so don't forget to seed it
    (utorrent has very easy "create torrent" options)

    Great tip, Vargas

    I didn't know this before.

    What do you mean "set the tracker"?

    when you create a torrent, one of the settings that has to be set is tracker URL

    For me, the best one is bitcomet, it's easy, so try with that one
