If you are planning to run torrent on a remote computer which you want to control using a browser, then TorrentFlux is for you. It allows multiple users to use one system as a torrent server.

I am running TorrentFlux on the Plug Computer, it works well. Its also easy to use and manage. Its available on standard Ubuntu repository so you can set it up on any desktop/netbook running Ubuntu.

Once Installed, just go to the IP address of the computer where Torrent Flux is installed. Eg.
