IPTorrents Seeding
So I'm just now getting in to IPTorrents for my plex server instead of trying to go through the random assortment of torrent sites and VPN, but I'm getting nothing when trying to seed. For my first few downloads, I just chose a few of the popular movies on the home page and went with them.

I'm using transmission with my ports open. I want to try and keep a good ratio

ip torrents is ridiculously easy to keep a good ratio.

i've left torrents seeding for months and months and yet to get a comcast nasty-gram. they haven't gotten around to harassing ip torrent users yet.

did you just set this up? give it some time and i think it will start to take off. in the beginning its slow getting connections and then suddenly you will be uploading bits like crazy.

grab lots of freeleech stuff in the meantime. no tatio hit, just keep it seeded for 30 days or until ratio is 1:1 on it then delete it.

depending on your use, here is my guidelines from best to wrost

LOCAL HOSTED
- 4K REMUX
- 4K web download
- 4k x.265 HDR

- 1080p REMUX
- 1080p web download
- 1080p x.264 <-- for some reason 1080p x.265 struggles quite a bit even on other local TVs on wifi so I go for 264 for 1080p.

FOR REMOTE
- 1080p web download (already optimized for streaming)
- 1080p x.264


YOU'RE WELCOME

This is what I was looking for. I'll let it ride out and see what happens. Might even donate some more just because I plan on using it so often. I'm gonna go dive into some freeleach goodies

I know all of this, I've been torrenting for years, but finally made the move to IPT

Grab some of those big free packs. They always have leechers. You will have a buffer in a couple of days.

The Marvel and Disney packs have paid dividends

re: IPTorrents Seeding
Yeah, once you get going and get your torrent software optimized it's pretty painless. I've had around a 3:1 upload ratio for over 5 years and I don't even try anymore. Grab some popular new releases with a bunch of leeches and hit cruise control.

I started these yesterday afternoon, guess I just need to wait it out a few days for the seeding to bump up

Are you sure the settings in Transmission are correct?

No uTorrent for Linux? I know that app like the back of my hand.

Check and make sure your ports are forwarded correctly in your firewall.

Did you use any website to verify the ports are staying open?
