How to create a torrent?

Torrents are the best way to share large files with you friends, or even with people you don't know. Surprisingly, not many people use torrents while sharing large data.
Here we go on to explain you, how to create torrents for your files using our Open BitTorrent Tracker.
Below, we have used some famous BitTorrent clients for the demo.

  • File > Create new Torrent (or CTRL + N).
  • Select the files and or directories.
  • Trackers: This is probably the hard part for most people. But it’s pretty easy, just put in one of the popular public trackers. You can use one or more trackers, but in general one is enough.

    Now, put the following URL in the tracker box:

    http://tracker.novalayer.org:6969/announce udp://tracker.novalayer.org:6969/announce

  • Save the torrent and send it to your friends.

    http://tracker.novalayer.org:6969/announce udp://tracker.novalayer.org:6969/announce

  • Select single file or dicectory, click NEXT and point to the file or directory you want to share, and click NEXT.

  • Save the torrent and send it to your friends.
