Has anyone tried using an embedded tracker with a torrent. I found this in Azureus 2.2.0.2 and is in Azureus 2.3.0.0. Using this your system acts as the tracker as well. This seems to be like a way to share files without using a public tracker.

Has anyone here tried this before :think: Do you think there might be any vulnerabilities of using your personal system as a tracker :think:

it is ok to use it.. if your system can handle the load... (a whole bunch of requests esp if the peers are high) but then a decent upstream BW goes a long way....

A good firewall should help keep ur system secure if you are a tracker...

thanks ashok, it would'nt be much of a load, hardly 1 or 2 peers. never tried it before, so was a little skeptical about trying it out. i already have zonealarm pro in my system.
