btpd is a BitTorrent client daemon.
It's in AUR, get/installit it with your AUR helper or manually.
$ cower -d btpd && makepkg && pacman -U *.pkg
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".
