Thread: [How to] rtorrent & ntorrent

  1. #91
    Fat32 format of the harddisk?
    Try small torrents....

  2. #92
    No, ext3. I'll try and let you know.

  3. #93
    I figured out strange thing. When I start download, rtorrent says "Closed torrents due to low disk space error" as before. But after a while it finishes download, but the message stays (I know it because the downloaded file transfers from "work" directory to "target" directory and the file works).
    But rtorrent shows only the message without downloading progress????
    Edit: I tried nTorrent an it works ) I'm very happy. But I still don't understand the rtorrent's behaviour?

    Another problem. I'm unable to get full download speed. I have about 20Kb/s per torrent and see max 15 seeders (trackers show 10223 seeders and more). I did all firewall configuration but without any success.
    And DHT shows nothing: 0 Seeders 0 Leechers, Last time: null.
    My rtorrent.conf:
    #This is an example resource file for rTorrent. Copy to
    # ~/.rtorrent.rc and enable/modify the options as needed. Remember to
    # uncomment the options you wish to enable.

    Finally got rtorrent working! It seems lighter than transmission.
    Still, I'm having two problems - dunno if are related or not.

    First I cant get more than 404 error with /RPC2 webserver (, I have headstartII 'installed' for simplicity)

    But the most annoying it that I can't get rtorrent runing on the background.
    I have to manually start rtorrent and if I quit or close the SSH session (putty) it stops torrenting (seeding/downloadin). shouldn't it start auto on system reboot/restart?

    I haven't figure it out why... please, help!

    Edit: forgot to mention that ntorrent doesn't connect unless rtorrent is started manually and (ssh) open.

    rtorrent & ntorrent are now working fine, but have one question:
    is there an easy way to quickly change my global download and upload rate?
    i've limited the rate in my rtorrent.conf file. suppose I go somewhere for an hour or so and want to set my rate at full speed at meantime. what would be the easyest way to do it without manually editing rtorrent.conf file?

  8. #98
    You can do it on the terminal when you are connected via ssh.

    Just use the commands listet here under "Throtteling".

    Hope that helps.

    he he, I know, how to connect via ssh, but how do i enter then rtorrent?

  10. screen -r rtorrent does it for me

  11. #101
    if i put
    schedule  =  Test,12:05:00,24:00:00,download_rate = 25
    in my /opt/etc/rtorrent.conf file, the rtorrent doens't start. what's wrong?

    I just followed the instructions according to,
    so the command should look something like
    schedule = throttle_1,12:05:00,24:00:00,download_rate=25
    schedule = throttle_2,24:00:00,12:05:00,download_rate=0
    Notice that seeding rules have changed in the latest version of rtorrent. I now use:
    # Enable the default ratio group.
    # Change the limits, the defaults should be sufficient.
