The subject line says it all...

What BitTorrent Client do you use? (hehe, please don't respond w/ "I don't use one..." - thanks)

What box do you use it on?

What distro you are running...

thanks!

PS. eno/bzhou, I'd be curious to know what the most popular one is for NSLU2 and the optware feeds...

EDIT:
OK, while waiting and reading, I see many are using transmission, which now has clutch integrated into it. It carries it's own webserver in transmission-daemon , accessible at http://<ip-of-linkstation>:9091/transmission/web/ .

It compiled pretty easily in OE/bitbake and has a nice clean interface:

and it seems to work well!

I'm going to use BTG. Has all features that I want (DHT, httpseed, runs daemon, WWW and ncurses interface). Distri is Lenny.

Until I really get the thing running, I'm using rtorrent.

Cheers,

dsplayer

thanks dsplayer, this is one that I'd never heard of - interesting as it as a webif (besides the gtk GUI).

As you might suspect, I use rtorrent, since it is lean, small and has a nice text interface. I think that there are even some web interfaces for it...

I'm using it on a standard kurobox.

I use rTorrent with wTorrent for a web-based front-end.

My torrent folder is on an afp share (yes, I'm a Mac guy). I just put .torrent files into afp-share/torrent/watch/ and they start downloading automatically. When I want to check the status, I point my web browser to http://kuro-box/wtorrent/ and I have an gui interface I can interact with.

This setup has been working well for me for over 6 months now.

I use transmission it still randomly quits but after a few restarts usually gets going.
The web interface is nice, and the Windows clients are pretty good too.

I like how it has the IP block filter, don't know if it works... but its like a false sense of security :lol:

I never had much luck with the torrent programs and I tried almost all of them mostly unsuccessfully. A few installed tons of stuff to get going. :down: I don't like that very much but eh

Transmission works well for me.

NB: If you have a windows machine you might like the .net remote: http://code.google.com/p/transmission-remote-dotnet/

I also use rtorrent. It's great in combination with screen, because that way the text gui can run in background.

Hi
If you run an HTTP server + PHP (and SQL) torrentflux could be a good option.
With very few adaptation it can run with PhP 5.x also.
Bye
