Transmission how to create torrent

Post by damsoft »

Hello all,
I am new to Transmission, I used to use a different torrent program but my NAS (Qnap) supports Transmission.
I am able to download and seed a torrent, but I cannot find how I can seed my own files for others, to trackers.
I looked everywhere on the Web Client, I downloaded the Transmission Remote Dotnet client, I downloaded the Transmission Remote GUI but I cannot find how.

Could someone explain me how to seed files? Thank you.

Bye.

You'll need to do it from the command line using transmission-create.
Or, you may use some other app to create the torrent and load it to Transmission.

That is most likely the GTK build (or possibly the QT build) which is very different from the daemon build (standard one for NAS devices) in this regard.
