    Hello, BHW community

    I recently came to idea to get involved to torrents. I download and seed them for few years. But now I decided to start uploading my own torrents.

    But I am doing something wrong. Every time I put torrent it doesn't seeds. It just stands at 0 B.
    I don't know where I am making error. On my desktop there is folder with files from torrent and .torrent file for specific movie. I create new torrent,click add file and choose .zip file. I use few trackers found on kat.ph:



    And I check start seeding thing. I create and save as, but after that nothing happens. It says "seeding" but it actually doesn't do anything. I tried to load .torrent file from folder,but same thing happens. Tried downloading my own uploaded file,but same happens again,no seeding.

    Thanks for help.

    What program are you using? If you're using utorrent make sure that configured correctly, meaning it's allowing you to seed files. You can check it at the buttom of utorrent, if it's green you're good to go, if not then usually the problem is port. If you're using router make sure to forward the port utorrent is using.

    When I uploaded my files it always showed 0 seeders, while I was seeding it, so it's not a big deal there. People can still download the file you uploaded without a problem.

    A day ago I saw a thread on how to upload and seed torrent properly, so take a look around torrent section, I bet you'll find that thread!
