I have created a torrent from target.bz2 on my vps.

transmission-create  -o target.torrent -t udp://tracker.opentrackr.org:1337/announce  -s 2048  target.bz2

Port 51413 was opened on my pvs.
Then send the target.torrent to my friend with email,he start a download with aria2c:

aria2c target.torrent

aria2 will resume download if the transfer is restarted.
If there are any errors, then see the log file. See '-l' option in help/man page for details.

Try with transmission-cli:

It encounter error:

How to make torrent clien know the resources target.bz2 located in my vps?

Aria2c

info hash mismatch. expected: b5c4a65adbd5d2ea3e07f2d4207da4c4dee9a0ba, actual: ab172fda6a8b41155cf16e35e49883710169e2bf

The first error you had with aria2c is related to an existing target file on the download location /root/target.bz2 that have a hash mismatch, you need to delete/recreate the target file. (but this is probably not the only issue of your question)

This is may be caused by an improper transfer of the generated torrent file from the server, note that you can not use cat to copy your torrent file from the server.

Transmission

The torrent creation is correct, your torrent is just not seeding, on your server run:

transmission-cli -v /tmp/target.torrent -w /tmp/ -p 51413

To make the file available for clients, this command must output Seeding, uploading to 0 of 0 peer(s), 0 kB/s [0.00]... and must be kept running.

How to create a torrent on a VPS:

In this how-to demo we will generate a random file with dd and use transmission. note that uploading and downloading from the server itself may be tricky or not possible with transmission as it require additional configuration. also note that we can use the package transmission-daemon for a proper torrent server (not used in this mini how-to).

  1. Install the package transmission
  2. Generate a random file
    mkdir /tmp/tmp
    cd /tmp/tmp
    dd if=/dev/random of=/tmp/tmp/file.my count=100000
  1. Open the TCP/UDP ports 51413
  2. Create the torrent file
    transmission-create -o /tmp/tmp/tor.torrent -t udp://tracker.opentrackr.org:1337/announce -s 1024 /tmp/tmp/file.my
  1. Copy the torrent file to the client (cat may not be used)

  2. Enable a seeder on the server, the following command must output Seeding, uploading to 0 of 0 peer(s), 0 kB/s [0.00]... and must be kept running.

    transmission-cli -v /tmp/tmp/tor.torrent -w /tmp/tmp/ -p 51413
  1. Open the torrent file on the client with the preferred torrent client.

qtorrent shows there is no seeds.

Maybe you forgot to seed on your vps?

vps$ transmission-cli -v target.torrent -w  dir/containing/target.bz2

1.Add more trackers when to create torrent.
Get the active trackers from
tracker server list
use them all.

2.Use qbittorrent,and select start seeding after creation.
