Torrent Server

Information related to the TurnKey Linux Torrent Server appliance


In v14.0 & v14.1, the TurnKey Torrentserver appliance uses rTorrent on the backend and ruTorrent as the WebUI. These doc pages need updating but in the meantime there are many browser extensions that can make adding torrents to ruTorrent/rTorrent super easy.


Due to numerous complaints about the stability of rTorrent, in v14.2 we have switched to using Tranmission. We understand that this may not be to everyone's liking, so we may well produce both a Transmission server and an rTorrent server for v15.0. We'll see how we go... If anyone would like to be involved in that, please get in touch. I suggest posting on the forums or perhaps post an issue on the tracker (especially if you are keen to do the work!).
