I have a server hosting my FTP files and was wondering, is there any kind
of tool I can use to make my server act as a seed for torrents?
So at the least, if only one person decides to try and download it as
a torrent, they can, because there's the one seed available.
(Rather than doing it, say, from a torrent client at home...)

(Admittedly, I'm NOT very versed in torrenting)
