I would highly recommend using a simpler and more powerful torrent server. in this case I would opt for rtorrent, it is cli based, can be accessed and interacted with by ssh, and its resource footprint is minimal.

Raspberry Pi Seed Field

Idea originally thought by SeanB on 12th March 2012

Summary

To provide an extremely simple method of setting up a linux image that can simply seed torrents for the common user.

Benefits:

  • This would help the torrenting community by providing a low cost machine to provide constant seeding.
  • Easy to setup.
  • 24/7 seeding.


Technical Details

Operating System

  • The image will be using a Debian/Fedora operating system.

Program

  • The image will use a program called Deluge
