Sharing/Uploading

Create a torrent file

Place the file you wish to share in your torrent directory. For example, if the file you want to share is vmlinuz92608foonasem.gz, then use the cli binary like this:

transmissioncli -n vmlinuz92608foonasem.gz -a http://linuxtracker.org:2710/announce vmlinuz92608foonasem.torrent

After executing this you should have a file called vmlinuz92608foonasem.torrent, which is suitable for uploading to a torrrent tracker site.
