I want to setup a server that runs Arch Linux commandline. Its duties would be file storage (Maybe backup) and BitTorrent downloads. I have tried in the past to try and get it working but wasn't completely successful. Can anyone help me with what packages/how I would go about setting it up?
However, when I set up rTorrent on a server of sorts, I would just leave it running, having it configured so that it would monitor a directory for torrents (a torrent repository, if you will). On any other computer, I would mount that torrent directory, over the network, through sshfs and when I downloaded a torrent, would just drop it into that mounted directory.
If you go to the rTorrent website, there is an easy-to-find page that gives you an absolutely wonderful example of a configuration file for rTorrent. In all honesty, I copy-and-paste that example every time I am setting up another "torrent server". The only things I change are some of the schedules, quotas, share ratios, and the names of the directories. It's a very helpful example.
