I want to know how can I set up bit torrent client on my web server, I found this article http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/linux-command-line-bittorrent-client.html

but http://download.bittorrent.com/dl/bittorrent_5.0.3_python2.4.deb now does not exists, my Python version is 2.6 on ubuntu 10.04, I searched for bittorrent version that suits with my python version but no results.

Any one know how can I do this? Is there any other way to do this?
