Hi Thomas,

do you mean the torrent file or the content which should be shared?
In the first case you do this with for example with HTTP. So you can upload
the file.
Otherwise the uploader doesn't upload to the tracker, but to the other
peers. Which means one of them should have an open port.
If your port is closed the other peer can't connect to you. If the peer has
an open port you can connect to him instead.
