I am trying to seed a torrent on one of my servers which is CLI only. To create the file I am doing: transmission-create a.out then uploading with: transmission-cli -w . a.out.torrent

Except that it just sits there at 0 percent progress. I've been trying to use ctorrent as well, but no luck there either. It just spends all of its time trying to connect to a tracker, and really I'd rather not have any trackers at all anyway.

EDIT: Or could someone tell me how to use a free tracker? Or are seeding torrents really impossible and this is all a dream...
