Forwarding .torrent files to local server. - Page 2

post #11 of 23
set up utorrent webui. set utorrent to process torrents from a folder then share that folder over the network. download .torrents from any computer on the network share access and map it as a network drive

(this is how it's set up on mine)


How I set it up:

"Loading" is a folder within the server that's shared. "File Server" is the folder torrents move into when complete. I never get to see partial torrents (If i have to, I RDC it).

How it works:

Download directly into the network folder from any PC.

Voila!

uTorrent loads it and you can watch the progress on the WebUI. After it's finished, it moves into the "File Server" folder on my favorites.

I use dropbox. The 'server' monitors a directory for *.torrents and autoloads it whenever new ones show up.

I know there are easier/built in ways of doing this, but I have one main machine with lots of client machines that have access to the dropbox folder so they can put .torrents in no matter where I am. I don't have to bother having to log into a web ui. I was getting kinda annoyed when I have to drop or cut and paste each torrent url into a web ui individually.

I use a Firefox addon that works with utorrent webui it detects when I click on a torrent link and forwards it to my download box.

Which addon? I have utorrent set up on my server, and use the webui to start torrentz from work, or anywhere that isn't my house with ease, but having them auto upload with out logging into the web ui would be sweet.

use bitthief then you don't have to upload

I use FreeNAS that uses Transmission.
It basically monitors a folder on my FreeNAS and when I though the .torrent files into it, it automatically starts downloading (or do whatever I ask it to do).

so... if everybody doesn't upload, who do you download from?

What a great idea.

I'm surprised none of you have mentioned uRemote. You install utorrent on your server. Then you install this on any pc in your network. Then when you download a torrent file and open it with uRemote, it connects your servers utorrent and uploads the torrent to your server.

Well, that's probably useful, but it's an executable. Adding more programs to a system isn't necessarily the best, but the addon mentioned above is really just extending the functionality to an already running and installed program.
