Torrent Server

Information related to the TurnKey Linux Torrent Server appliance

TurnKey Torrent Server uses Transmission. We understand that this may not be to everyone's liking. If you'd like to be involved in developing and maintaining an alternate torrent client/server appliance, I suggest posting on the forums and/or posting an issue on the tracker.

Using a VPN Server To Secure Internet Traffic To Your Torrent Server

You can use the Turnkey Linux OpenVPN Appliance (or another VPN provider or alternate VPN server, e.g. Wireguard appliance) to act as a router. When installing your OpenVPN appliance, use the "Client" option for setting up OpenVPN. You can read about configuring an OpenVPN Server as both a client and a router here.

You can edit your Torrent Server's defualt gateway to use the static IP of your OpenVPN router like so:

nano /etc/network/interfaces

#ISP Router IP is
#OpenVPN router IP is
#Torrent Server IP is

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
