Hello. I wish to setup Xubuntu server on my old P3 computer. It should run as a file server and torrent download server. I am fine with the file server implementation portion but I cant seem to find any guides on getting it to run as a service to download torrents. Can anyone assist ?

Thank you

1: you can run Transmission bittorent client as daemon. you will get a Web console and CLI client for the daemon
2: you can use rTorrent with wTorrent as web gui, check here http://www.wtorrent-project.org/
