Question Torrent Trackers

Could someone please explain in pain English (or Spanish) how a tracker works and why they are important in the torrent world.

Default Re: Torrent Trackers

The trackers contain pointers to the file(s) and/or their pieces. If you download Ubuntu via torrent, you're downloading from other people who are sharing the same file. The tracker points you in the right direction and logs your IP for the MPAA
