ScreenshotThis module implements a multiuser BitTorrent client utilizing rTorrent as backend and ruTorrent as web based user interface. This module has been developed as replacement for the outdated RTORRENT module.

rTorrent is a BitTorrent client using libtorrent (a BitTorrent library written in C++ for *nix, with a focus on high performance and good code), which on high-bandwidth connections is able to seed at 3 times the speed of the official client. It supports saving of sessions and allows the user to add and remove torrents.

1U4200XXX, N2800, 1U4500, N4510U, 1U4600, M3800, N4800, N0503, N4800Eco, N2200XXX, N5550, N2520, N3200PRO, N6850, N3200XXX, N7510, N4100PRO, N7700PROv2, N4200, N8800PROv2, N4200Eco, N8900, N4200PRO, N8850, N4520, N8900V, N10850, N12000, N5200, N12000PRO, N5200PRO, N12000V, N5200XXX, N16000, N5500, N16000PRO, N7700, N16000V, N7700+, N7700PRO, N7700SAS, N8200XXX, N8800, N8800+, N8800PRO, N8800SAS

Dependencies and Requirements

Since version 2.00.00 this module depends on:

The above modules must be installed and enabled prior to installing this module.

When upgrading from version 1.x to 2.x the following commands have to be run from a shell to backup the current configuration and torrents before the old module is deinstalled:

cd /raid/data/module/FaJoTorrent
cp system/var/home/.rtorrent.rc system/etc/rtorrent.rc
tar czf /raid/data/module/backup/FaJoTorrent/backup.tgz www/rutorrent/share system/etc/rtorrent.rc

The backup will automatically be restored when installing version 2.x.


After enabling the module the module status and configuration page can be accessed. This page allows to enable, disable and configure the ruTorrent authentication and to manage some of the rTorrent default settings.

After installing the module the ruTorrent UI pages are protected and require a username and password. Per default any local user is allowed to access ruTorrent. The ruTorrent interface is directly accessible through the following URL:


or through the modules management interface.

The default torrent folder will be:


Please make sure the path exists (e.g. as or within a shared folder). You may want to change the path to an existing share or folder.
