ctorrent: command line bittorrent client for Fedora

CTorrent is a BitTorrent Client written in C that doesn't require any graphical component, such as an X server.
To install it on Fedora: as root yum install ctorrent

Basic commands: ctorrent -p <port_number> -U <rate_max_upload_Kb> -D <rate_max_download_Kb> <file.torrent>

It's useful to simplify the command with the alias command
If you need to launch it from a remote connection I suggest to use screen command
