Burnbit is a free web service that does just that. Here's a bit more background information and commentary on the service, and the official FAQ.

I've never used the service, but was also curious about your question. I stumbled across Burnbit when researching it.

To make a torrent file, you need to actually be physically hosting the file on your machine. You cannot remotely link to a webserver or something as the contents of a torrent file. That'd be fairly unethical too I think since you're leeching off someone elses bandwidth.

You need to have the files within the torrent on your machine, and they must be locally accessible by the Client/Server to use them.

tl:dr No, you cannot do that.

BurnBit is a Web Service and too buggy doesn't even support smaller file. I recommend you to use Utorrent Web Seed For This.

Simple make a torrent.

without source ( address of file in your computer) it wouldn't work, if you can do it, explain exactly it in your answer . because i couldn't do that – hamed Mar 20 '12 at 6:33
I do it on VPS, so i have source there. – Laime Nekurzeme Mar 20 '12 at 6:45
