Yu can run 2 or ore the same torrents at the same time , maybe becaue the announce is difference , that then also the hash is different .. but I never have problems when I seed on 2 trackers at teh same timewell, before i explain this, you need to know that you can not run 2 torrents with the same hash at the same time. If you want to do that, you need to have 2 SEPARATE rtorrent's set up. The way i do this is quite simple though
you might think it's working but if the torrents have the same hash, i ASSURE you rtorrent only runs one of them.I do this all the time with the same user and never had a problem. What i do is download a torrent from tracker 1 and wait for it to finish. Then go look for the same exact torrent at tracker 2 and download the .torrent file. Next, i just add the .torrent file from tracker 2 and have it download to the same path as the tracker 1 torrent. Finally, it starts to check right away and then begins to seed when its complete checking.
I usually leave both torrents running (seeding) when doing this and still havent ran into a problem. Sometimes i even do this with 4 different trackers, 4 of the same torrents with some even having to download a little more data and it still works fine with all torrents.
again. IF the hash is the same then it WILL NOT WORK.Yu can run 2 or ore the same torrents at the same time , maybe becaue the announce is difference , that then also the hash is different .. but I never have problems when I seed on 2 trackers at teh same time
The torrents are the same hash and are the exact same torrents, but are from several different private trackers. I use the same torrent data to upload to 4 different trackers constantly to build good buffers. When i do this there are 4 instances of the torrent running, but all are using the same data/path from the original torrent to upload. Each instance uses its own tracker announce and updates my stats just fine. Actually, as soon as i add the 2nd torrent, rtorrent starts to check the hash right away and then does the same for the 3rd & 4th.you might think it's working but if the torrents have the same hash, i ASSURE you rtorrent only runs one of them.
So far no problems , so I think this will only happen when you try the same torrent from the same tracker, as it looks like every tracker creates a different hash ,It will not actually work. It's possible that different trackers provide different hashes. The fact of the matter is that 2 torrents with the same hash info will not work in rtorrent. I know EXACTLY what people are saying, i've got 4 copies of the exact same torrent data moving on different sites right now, but the torrent hash info is different, so it's not an issue. Occasionally, you WILL run into torrents with the same hash though. I've seen it before.
