2- run opentracker

./opentracker

It will listen on port tcp/udp 6969, my pc run the tracker is 192.168.202.1


3- create torrent file with bittorrent
change the trackers to udp://192.168.202.1:6969/announce as the picture below



then save the the torrent file. if you share the file, other people will be able to download all content that list in the torrent with the help from our own tracker

4- test download the torrent file, we see two peer are downloading and the tracker is 192.168.202.1




5- get statistic from our tracker
 use the following url:
http://localhost:6969/stats
http://localhost:6969/stats?mode=everything




-------------------------------------------

with our tracker we can use torrent with the internet (public trackers like udp://tracker.openbittorrent.com:80/announce, etc..).

  1. Such simple at the same time completely understandable explanations, thanks! Commonly used by me torrent files stored on my computer for a while, but I don't forget to share with peers from time to time, it's as good manners for everyone who knows what is torrent https://wikiext.com/torrent at all.
    I've been using torrents for several years as a source of music, movies, some required software and well-known audio books at times.
    An importance of the torrent can hardly be overemphasized, so I'll just thank the creators for accessing the files cuz,
    it's quite simplifying the torrent files opening and extensions of the same type.
