[CentOS] CentOS 5 and bittorrent

rTorrent is a console-based BitTorrent client. It aims to be a
fully-featured and efficient client with the ability to run in the
background using screen

If I install screen, I can start it and leave it in the background when I
close SSH, right?
I've not used it before, but am installing it (screen) now (it's in base)
Anyone have some tips...
Can't believe I haven't looked for this before....

you can get rtorrent from dag:


here's the User Guide:


if you've already downloaded, just copy the ISOs into your download location
before you fire up the torrent; your client should detect that the torrent
is already completely downloaded and start seeding it.  configure the client
to seed forever, and you'll make a lot of people happy.


If this were played upon a stage now, I could condemn it as an improbable
fiction. - Fabian, Twelfth Night, III,v
