I need to torrent some videos (all properly licensed and legal of course) and the trackers mention this type of arrangement.
What software do I need? (Linux only please -- preferably command line so I can run it in 'screen' on a remote server and detach from it.)
usually magnets go with VUZE/Azureus, iirc.
Unfortunately, the Vuze client wants to run on your desktop, so I'm unable to operate it remotely. I would like to figure out a way around that.
I use rtorrent for anything torrent in a screen. Pretty neat thing. You need to configure it to do sessions in the rc. (/home/user/.rtorrent.rc)
It also should be able to deal with magnet links.
I run everything locally, so I don't know about that stuff. sorry.
access to beaucoup bandwidth so your downloads hopefully finish a lot
The so called "BUCKETS of bandwidth" approach.
It's not the true demonoid - disregard it.
I stopped torrenting stuff quite a while ago. Usenet is more fun...
