Open Torrent Tracker List (2016)

Mattias Geniar, Monday, June 6, 2016 - last modified: Tuesday, October 4, 2016

If you've ever downloaded a torrent, chances are you've cursed at the slow download speeds. That could be your ISP throttling the connection (thanks, Telenet), but it could also be that the trackers or peers you're using are just slow or unresponsive.

Since torrents aren't only used for illegal downloads, I figure I'd share a list of known public good trackers. If your Linux ISO downloads are slow, add these to the mix and you should see a significant speedup.

udp://tracker.opentrackr.org:1337/announce

http://explodie.org:6969/announce

http://mgtracker.org:2710/announce

http://tracker.tfile.me/announce

udp://9.rarbg.com:2710/announce

udp://9.rarbg.me:2710/announce

udp://9.rarbg.to:2710/announce

udp://tracker.coppersurfer.tk:6969/announce

udp://tracker.glotorrents.com:6969/announce

udp://tracker.leechers-paradise.org:6969/announce

udp://open.demonii.com:1337

udp://tracker.openbittorrent.com:80

udp://90.180.35.128:6969/annonce

Some of these are provided by the OpenBitTorrent initiative, other are community supported trackers.

To add any of these, edit the properties of your torrent and add the trackers listed above.

In the case of uTorrent, edit the properties of the torrent and just copy/paste the list above in the Trackers list.

If all goes well, your torrent client should show a list of trackers it's using.

torrent_tracker_list

The result should be a significantly faster download because it can find more peers.

If you're still suffering from slow downloads, look into using a VPN or seedbox that downloads the torrents for you, so you can download it via ssh or another protocol.
