I am assuming that you are in the U.S. But last time I checked most if not all Tracker sites are hosted in foreign countries which helps keep MPAA/RIAA away. If you are planning on hosting this from your own home I would give you about a week at best before the authorities step in and your charged for copywright infringement.

I'm sorry but Torrents /= Illegal.

Bittorrent is a valid data transfer protocol which is great for people who can't afford web hosting with large amounts of bandwidth.

Also Windows 2003 is not as bad as people like to say, because you know, its cool to bash microsoft, you have to be careful about security, but you should be on any server.

If you want to set up a Torrent webiste then you need to create a torrent tracker. Loads of them about which will run on a webserver, choose which one you like the look of. Other than that you just need a website to host the actually torrents, so what you need there is dependant on what you want to do with it.

I say go for it. Read up on copyright laws. Hell, your gut should tell you what not to host. And Server2003 isnt that bad. For a beginner I find it easier to get going that a LAMP configuration (though I'll get flamed for that comment). The best thing that will come from this experience is the knowledge you'll gain from setting up the server, installing the torrent packages, configuring everything, securing it (on windows thats like half the work). And when it's all said and done a lot of that will transfer to any OS. So go for it, and be mindful of your good friend google.

I'm with aardwolf on this one Getting apache 2.2* php5 mysql and a mailserver took me all of 10 mins to get working on a Windows box. And I have yet to get them all working perfectly on a linux box.

Well once you've gotten LAMP for your Server2003, or the whole schibang for Linux, you officially have a website.

Next is to open ports. I suggest www.portforward.com and look for "HTTP" after choosing your router. Also, once your tracker is online, to port forward that too. Or if you're lazy and like viruses you can give your machine a DMZ.

or some of the original documentation:

Let me just explain what I found funny about that quote.

LAMP stand for Linux Apache MySQL and PHP, so you basically said "Setup Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP on server 2003", it only made me laugh because I automatically translate LAMP to Linux, Apache MySQL & PHP in my head :P

But, as others already pointed out, he just wants to host torrents.

The only one claiming those torrents are for warez or other illegal-to-distribute items is you.

You don't know that the torrents are warez, it could just be some harmless child porn.

My sentiments exactly. Children need love too you know. :twisted:
