console bittorrent client / ssh control


I recently set up an Ubuntu file server. I'd like to use it to download torrents, but I have no monitor/keyboard/etc connected to it, I just access it through ssh if I need to do anything on it. My question is, what is a really good console based bittorrent client, and how could I ssh into the machine, work with the client, and then let do its thing without having to keep the ssh session open. Any ideas?
