Is there a way we could host this within our own group without having to submit it to the world?

No, I don't think so. Most torrent programs don't allow you to exclude others or leech, as that is the whole point behing torrent. You would either have to get a custom one or sharee w/ everyone.

Sorry for partially stealing your thunder, but kw13 was poking me with a red-hot brading iron. We wanted to get it into the newsletter (and I need the extra post cos my post count is quite frankly crap).

I know there is a way to do what you're talkin about Dave, but I think you have to have your own tracker. Just kinda an IP recognition system. In other words you register at a site, it takes your information (IP addy and some other control panel stuff), and then it recognizes your IP when you logon to your tracker.

Hey umm Dave, make the torrent, host the torrent here WITHOUT sharing it to the world and we will download it and run it, so long as no one leaks it, only we can leach it.
