"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 addition to the previous compilation guides of rTorrent,
this one will also feature ruTorrent on a force Apache SSL
connection with password protection.
"This howto works for Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat and for
Debian 6 Squeeze. The difference is that commands that contain sudo
must be executed as root.
"In this howto I assume you download and compile the sources
from your ~/svn/rtorrent folder."
