Control BitTorrent downloads remotely

Quick and easy how-to on setting up remote bittorrenting at the Wired How-To Wiki

For the full-fledged BitTorrent geek, remote control means setting up BitTorrent on a home server that runs continuously in the background. Even if you don’t want to delve into home server setups, remote control tools have other uses.

Say you’re at the office and you want to see if the latest episode of Lost is going to download completely before you get home. Well, it’s no problem if you’re using a web-based torrent interface.

Nice use for an old computer you might have laying around.
