Testcomplete 9 Torrent

rTorrent is a quick and efficient BitTorrent client that uses, and is in development alongside, the libTorrent (not to be confused with libtorrent-rasterbar) library. It is written in C++ and provides a terminal-based user interface via the ncurses programming library. When combined with a terminal multiplexer (e.g. GNU Screen or Tmux) and Secure Shell, it becomes a convenient remote BitTorrent client.

Before running rTorrent, copy the example configuration file /usr/share/doc/rtorrent/rtorrent.rc to /.rtorrent.rc, and check out the related rTorrent wiki page that has a modern basic configuration file.

The schedule2 option has rTorrent watch a particular directory for new torrent files. Saving a torrent file to this directory will automatically start the download. Remember to create the directory that will be watched (e.g. mkdir /watch). Also, be careful when using this option as rTorrent will move the torrent file to your session folder and rename it to its hash value.

The protocol.encryption.set option enables or disables encryption. It is very important to enable this option, not only for yourself, but also for your peers in the torrent swarm. Some users need to obscure their bandwidth usage from their ISP. And it does not hurt to enable it even if you do not need the added security.

This service file has no restart because the author occasionally takes the drive in question offline, and rtorrent fails, shall we say, "suboptimally" when started in this scenario and loses many torrent specific settings such as the specific directories each torrent is stored in. In fact the symlinks that kick off rtorrent live on the relevant drive; if it is unmounted rtorrent cannot start. This use case of blocking rtorrent from starting is relevant to users who put the downloaded files on removable media such as NAS, USB or eSATA drives.

If multiple rtorrent instances are not needed and the rtorrent rc file is in the default location the above service file may be simplified. The entire file is included but only the ExecStart and ExecStop lines change.

rTorrent has the ability to pre-allocate space for a torrent. The major benefit is that it limits and avoids fragmentation of the filesystem. However, this introduces a delay during the pre-allocation if the filesystem does not support the fallocate syscall natively.

If you do not want to download a torrent immediately, and would prefer it to begin at a later time (to accomodate a data plan, for example), you can add the torrent to a specific directory and tell rtorrent to check that directory periodically, if a torrent file is present, rtorrent will start downloading at the appointed time:

If you want xdg-open to handle this, which you need if you are using chrome instead of Firefox, (though gnome and other DE might have their own programs overriding xdg-open) you need to create the desktop entry for the rtorrent-magnet script in /.local/share/applications/rtorrent-magnet.desktop with the following content:

PyroScope command line utilities are a collection of tools for the the rTorrent client that work well together with the #rtorrent-ps patchset.Amongst other things, they provide automation for common tasks and a queue manager for rTorrent.
