How to install a torrent application on fedora core 6

I'm new to linux, I have a dedicated server running Fedora Core 6. I need to be able to download/seed torrents from the server, also somehow login to a torrent tracker from the server so it updates the download/upload stats.

So I would need a torrent program that i could somehow manage via http or I have root access via SHH.. but to manage the torrent program on a GUI would be more convenient.

And i would need to login with a browser to the torrent tracker so my stats get updated.

As i said I'm new to linux.. so i dont know how to get a browser up.. and don't have any clue about linux torrent apps.

If anyone has a solution to my problem, would be much appreciated.

Azureus works well, I'm not sure if it will do all of what you ask though.

^^^ i dont have idea but i would prefer to install vnc so that u can control something via ur GUI and to vnc is already on ur server if its OVH and use command # vncserver ... and it install it and then # vncserver passwd ... command to set password and then # vncserver :1 ... to run it

PS- .... is just not to confuse with commands and that ... doesnt need to be entered for any reason

Azureus needs too much resources for the program working somewhere in the background. rtorrent would be much better.
