[ Thanks to Falko Timme for this link. ]

"rTorrent is a popular command line based bittorrent client. It provides very powerful features yet it is very light on the system - contrary to other bittorrent clients like Vuze. There are a couple of webinterfaces for it but they are not truly need. SSH access combined with the "screen" program provide you all the tools you need.

"In the previous howto patches for magnet link support were provided. With the current revision 1169 magnet link support has already been integrated. However some of the inner workings were changed and the colour patch was modified to work in the current revision.

"This howto works for Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx and for Debian 5 Lenny. The difference is that commands that contain sudo must be executed as root."
