Creating a Torrent[edit]

From Transmission or another bittorrent client, you can click 'new' or 'create' to make your own torrent. All you need to get started is the file you want to torrent! Thomas Vanhoutte has a list of the top trackers to use.

Advertising Your Torrent[edit]

Create an account on The Pirate Bay and upload your torrent to publicly advertise it.

Configuring Transmission[edit]

use apt-file to look for files!

Bittorrent CLI[edit]

https://trac.transmissionbt.com/wiki/ConfigFiles

If you want to swap between the two applications, all you have to do is pass in a different config directory with the -g command-line option. For example, to have the daemon pick up where the gtk+ client left off, run transmission-daemon -g ~/.config/transmission
