Full Description

opentracker-docker

With this repo you can easily run your own instance of the opentracker for bitorrent.

How to run an open opentracker

If you want to run a complete open tracker, just pull the docker image and start up a container:

docker run -d --name opentracker -p 6969:6969/udp -p 6969:6969 lednerb/opentracker-docker

This will bind the port 6969 to the docker container (UDP and TCP) and you're good to go.

How to run a customized opentracker instance

If you want to config your opentracker instance, just download or git clone the github repository and edit the opentracker.conf file.

Now you have to build your own image as follows:

  1. Edit and save the opentracker.conf file
  2. Open a terminal and cd into the project folder
  3. Run docker build -t yourfancyname/opentracker .

After building the docker image successfully you can start up a container:

docker run -d --name opentracker -p 6969:6969/udp -p 6969:6969 yourfancyname/opentracker

How to whitelist your opentracker torrents

If you solely want to run the opentracker instance for specific torrents you have to whitelist them.

Follow these steps to whitelist your .torrent files:

  1. Download or git clone the github repository
  2. Open the whitelist.txt file in your favorite editor
  3. Copy & Paste your torrent info_hashes into the file
  4. Uncomment line 37 in the opentracker.conf
  5. Open a terminal and cd into the project folder
  6. Run docker build -t yourfancyname/opentracker .

Example whitelist.txt:

0123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef01234567
890123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef012345

After the docker image was successfully built you can start a new container:

docker run -d --name opentracker -p 6969:6969/udp -p 6969:6969 yourfancyname/opentracker

How to blacklist some torrents

Just follow the steps from obove but paste the info_hashes into the blacklist.txt file and uncomment line 41 in the opentracker.conf file.
