btpd is a BitTorrent client daemon.

Installing

It's in AUR, get/installit it with your AUR helper or manually.

$ cower -d btpd && makepkg && pacman -U *.pkg

Configuring

The configuration lies in /etc/conf.d/btpd. Actually in the file there's just a definition for $BTPD_ARGS, which is included in /etc/rc.d/btpd. The configuration file could look something like this:

#
# Arguments to be passed to the BitTorrent Protocol Daemon
#

btpdUSER="s"    # See the note, for this option to work.
DIR="/home/s/down/torrents"
PORT="6881"

OUTLIMIT="0"    # Measured in kB/s, 0 means unlimited.
INLIMIT="0"     # Measured in kB/s, 0 means unlimited.
# See other options in `man btpd`

BTPD_ARGS="-d $DIR -p $PORT --bw-out $OUTLIMIT --bw-in $INLIMIT"

NOTE: It's meant to be used from userland, although you could run it from your user, but that requires a tweak in the default deamon. Change line 11 to: "su $btpdUSER -c "/usr/bin/btpd $BTPD_ARGS" &> /dev/null".
