Creating a torrent is a little more complicated, but Azureus has the tool you need. To do this press <Ctrl>-N. Follow the prompts and enter either the file name or directory that you want to put in the torrent - see Figure 2. You must list an http:// or dht:// (Dynamic Hash Table) to announce your tracker. This should correspond to the Web server you'll be uploading to. For this example, I'm using www.mininova.org so the following tracker hosts are suitable (dht:// is unsupported by this service).
You can select your piece length (ie, the size of the partial files it will be divided into) but the defaults are generally fine. Tick the checkbox to begin seeding when it is created - see Figure 3.
Now you'll need to list your torrent on a Web site. You can do this legally anywhere, so long as you're sharing material that isn't protected by copyright, but legal sites like legaltorrents.com require you to e-mail the administrators so they can check your content. For greater exposure, you'll receive the most traffic from Web sites that are renowned for hosting copyrighted material, like www.mininova.org and www.piratebay.org.
Mininova provides a simple upload Web interface. Once it's uploaded, navigate to the page on the Web server where your torrent is posted, click the link, and when the BitTorrent client starts, be sure to select the same file/directory that you used in Azureus when you created the torrent. The client should check the files and verify that they are complete, and then connect to the tracker and begin seeding.
To make sure your seed is recognised by the tracker, you have to have port forwarding set up in the NAT settings on your router (if you're on a network). This will be your BitTorrent port (most likely 6881, but could be up to 6889 depending on what you set in installation). You may also need to adjust your command line parameters by creating a new Azureus shortcut and adding your Web-visible IP address. This can be found out by visiting www.myipaddress.com. The command line parameter should look like this "C:\Program Files\Azureus\Azureus.exe" "--ip XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX" (where the Xs are the numbers of your IP address). This process applies only if you're seeding and running a tracker on the same machine, and you have a NAT (network address translator) setup like an ADSL router.
