Bittorrent daemon

Hi, I have recently set up my own home server and am exploring all the fun I can get out of it. I wonder if anyone knows a good way to run a bittorrent daemon. I would like to just put the torrent files into a folder on the server and the server will check it continually and download the files for me. Does anyone know which is the most stable / least tweaky way to do this in fedora?

Thanks in advance

I prefer to search and download torrents when logged in to my server (using FreeNX) because my other computer is the laptop I use at work. However I want to keep the bittorrents going when logging out. I would really just want something simple that lets me put the torrents in a certain folder and the server will download it for me. I have been using Azurues so far, but could use anything that works as a daemon. Are there any more suggestions?

Thanks

I installed TorrentFlux on my FC5 server, works well. You don't get all the same features as normal, but enough. Suits my purposes anyway.

Install the bittorrent packge from Fedora Extras, put your .torrent files in /srv/bittorrent/data, and start the btseed service.

This seems to be what I was looking for. How do I change the directory for downloaded files? Is there a manual somewhere?

I managed to change the directory for downloaded files using SEEDOPTS --save_in. The files are now downloading also when I log out. I would like to know if files can be automatically moved when finished and how I can see the progress of the torrent download. If anyone knows about this I would be happy for tips, but if not I will continue investigating the command line options.
