I would like to share a local file via torrent. I created a torrent at home on my laptop with
Transmission on Ubuntu 19.10 and successfully added the tracker
Now I want to download the file, I share at home on my laptop, on my Debian 10 VM on my XEN server via
I used this Howto: https://dev.deluge-torrent.org/wiki/UserGuide/ThinClient
I only need one user that runs
deluged and the
deluge-console, so I just did this:
apt install deluged deluge-console psmisc useradd deluge-user su deluge-user deluged deluge-console "config -s allow_remote True" deluge-console "config allow_remote" deluge-console
Then I copied the magnet link from the file in Transmission (NOTE: you have to first add the tracker, then copy the magnet link) on my Ubuntu laptop, and added it in the deludge-console by the command:
And it started the torrent, but there is nothing transferred:
Name: Testfile.mp3 ID: 6d288a34b359cdb5406f6858ab51edbacecefbd6 State: Downloading Down Speed: 0.0 KiB/s Up Speed: 0.0 KiB/s Seeds: 0 (1) Peers: 0 (1) Availability: 0.00 Size: 0.0 KiB/0.0 KiB Ratio: -1.000 Seed time: 0 days 00:00:00 Active: 0 days 19:22:34 Tracker status: openbittorrent.com: Announce OK Progress: 0.00% [~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~] C: 0 (200) D: 0.0 KiB U: 0.0 KiB DHT: 293 info
Am I missing something?
The deluged in my Debian VM seems to work fine: If I add another torrent from somewhere it downloads it just fine. Maybe I have to forward some ports for my laptop? That would not be possible on my WiFi hotspot in which I have no ability to forward ports.
Or do I have to upload the file to my server first per SSH and seed it from my online server? How would I create the magnet link there?
Please provide a solution, how I can share a file via torrent.
