Torrent Client Feature

Postby smshinde » 2010-03-31 20:02

Please suggest a bit torrent client for Debian which is having optional feature of shutting down the PC when download gets completed (as in BitTorrent, MuTorrent of Windows).

Thanks in advance.

Not sure, but the most popular are probably most likely to have this feature, check out Transmission (perhaps), Deluge (more likely), and if you don't mind working in the terminal rTorrent.

You can activate a plugin (at least in newer versions, I have 1.2.1) in Deluge that will execute a command of your choice upon an event. Events currently available are "Torrent Complete" and "Torrent Added"

The version currently in Lenny is rather old and is missing at least some features in comparison to newer versions
