"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."
