What does Transmission share to the ouside world?

Post by SwisherSweet »

Hi,

I'm new to Torrents. I am trying to download a public Torrent using the macOS version and I'm seeing a lot of data going out, but hardly any coming in. I assume that the only think I'm sharing is the same thing I'm trying to download.

Assuming I have a dedicated folder for what I'm downloading, does Transmission only share what I'm downloading, or does it share everything in the my "download" folder, even if it's not a entry in Transmission?

Thank you.

Transmission only share files
which are in downloading process/or 100% downloaded.
It only shares files that exist in the main window
and that you allow to be shared.

I read out the question I also face the same type of problem in that time which I can do which is also answered in this forum so I supported this answer Transmission only share files which are in downloading process or 100% downloaded. It only shares files that exist in the main window
and that you allow to be shared.

Energy touches our lives in countless ways and its costs are felt when we fill up at the gas pumpUPSers, pay our home heating bills, and keep businesses both large and small running. There are long-term costs as well: to the environment, as natural resources are depleted and pollution contributes to global climate change.
