Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I had downloaded some media (mainly free stuff) using Vuze for Windows but now I am using Ubuntu as my main system. I want to share my free downloaded files (as a retribution for the community) as well as probably some media of my own via BitTorrent, however I cannot find how to set Transmission to share those folders and files.

Do you know how to do it?

btw. What's the purpose of seeding and leeching and how can I configure it?

Of course, I'm not married to Transmission (except for a couple of current downloads that are still a few days away from completion). I can try any other bittorrent software if it works better for me. –  Carlos Eugenio Thompson Pinzón Sep 11 '13 at 12:09
