Problems downloading a torrent file I created as a test. HELP!


Recommended Posts

At home, I have a PC running XP professional, and a Mac running OSX. I use µtorrent on the PC and Transmission on the Mac. I have successfully downloaded files from various sites on both the clients.

Never having uploaded any thing so far, I wished to create and upload a torrent file (purely as a test), from the PC, send the file to myself and download the same from my Mac using Transmission. The computers are networked. The router used is a SMC 7004ABR

Using the excellent guide from http://www.poromenos.org/tutorials/bittorrent

I created a torrent file from a 750MB .avi file that I had downloaded a while ago and saved it to the desktop on my PC.

Immediately the file started seeding from µTorrent.

I then emailed the torrent file to myself, downloaded the file to the Mac desktop and opened it using the Transmission client.

Then nothing happens! I tried using my IP address (tracker), I tried using one of the trackers provided by mininova.org with no success.

What am I doing wrong?

Any help would be deeply appreciated.
