Question Torrent Client with Scheduling feature


I have to download in specific times , so I need a torrent client with scheduling ability.Currently I'm using Deluge,but it seems it has problem with DHT connectivity and downloads with this client is much slower than other clients like qBittorrent or Ktorrent.The problem is softwares like qBittorrent and Ktorrent don't have any download scheduling feature.

If you know a software with scheduling feature,plz let me know its name.

Thank you

You can also simply use cron to start and stop (kill) the torrent download app. Like that, any app can do it. You can also use application like QDbusViewer (Qt) or d-feet (gtk) to see what DBUS API your favorite torrent app provide. There is good chance it allow you to start and stop download. Like that, you can use cron to start and stop the download without killing the app (much cleaner). The command to send dbus call is "dbus-send". you might need to use it as the right user or trick it to see your user session bus.
