Question Command Line Accessible Bittorrent Client

Hey, wondering if anyone can help. I'm working on setting up a do-it-all server. At the minute i've got a webmin administrated box with ssh, ftp, https, a USB camera server, Samba Fileserver, and Azureus torrent downloader. the issue i have is that since i killed the gdm since its not connected to any K/M/M i have to ssh in, start up a vnc server, start up Azureus, every time i reboot (and while this is a rare occurrance im also not happy with the java based memory overheads).

Basically, im looking for a daemon based torrent client with command line support (gui would be nice but not needed) with a smaller memory footprint and a web interface would be great also.

Another thing im working on in relation to it is the ability to setup my server with its own email address and email url's to the server that it then starts to automatically download, as i hav a habit of wanting to try out new VM's.

Any ideas or hints or directions would be greatly appreciated.

Have you checked out the BitTorrent client TorrentFlux? ctorrent is a commandline torrent client that's simple to use. Don't know if it would fulfill all your needs, though.

i had a great deal of trouble with torrrentflux on a previous install so im not to keen on that one. I'm setting up a separate thread re:the email aspect of it because all that is needed is to parse the file out of the body of the email, and run wget to a folder that i have set up that Azureaus automatically reads for torrents, but I'd like to move onto something lighter...ahh well, can only hope someone comes up with something else, thanks for the reply
