After publishing RTorrent on Raspberry Pi, I did not have enough time to try anything new with the Raspberry Pi, I got requests later to get RuTorrent working with RTorrent on Raspberry Pi.
I decided to use a bash script-based setup instead of step by step because it will end up having the same result but with better security measures as the script is written by a much-experienced person and maintained actively.
I would recommend doing this on a clean install for best result.
This setup will contain
- libtorrent/rtorrent (Latest/Compiled)
- SSH port reassigned
- VSFTPD (FTP client) random port assigned
- Webmin (Optional) (Admin interface)
- rutorrent (Web UI)
Download the script
Run the script
sudo bash rtinst.shCode language: CSS (css)
The script would respond shown below
The next response would be to add a password to secure the web interface to the user
The final response after the process
crontab entries made. rtorrent and irssi will start on boot for pi ftp client should be set to explicit ftp over tls using port 48915 If enabled, access https downloads at https://192.168.0.200/download/pi rutorrent can be accessed at https://192.168.0.200/rutorrent rutorrent password as set by user to change rutorrent password enter: rtpass IMPORTANT: SSH Port set to 26828 - Ensure you can login before closing this session The above information is stored in rtinst.info in your home directory. To see contents enter: cat /home/pi/rtinst.info To install webmin enter: sudo rtwebmin PLEASE REBOOT YOUR SYSTEM ONCE YOU HAVE NOTED THE ABOVE INFORMATION Note down the changed SSH and FTP port before exiting the SSH session, the script adds these information to a file named `rtinst.info` for later access. ftp client should be set to explicit ftp over tls using port 43915 If enabled, access https downloads at https://192.168.0.200/download/pi rutorrent can be accessed at https://192.168.0.200/rutorrent rutorrent password as set by user to change rutorrent password enter: rtpass ssh port changed to 21828Code language: PHP (php)
The script does even more, it adds diverse options and update functionality with the help of
It would respond with these options
Doing this whole process manually would take a lot of steps and longer time, this script does more and simplifies, things like the update, upgrade plugin management, thanks to arakasi72, the repository of the script is on GitHub

I compiled a list of software and services that I use to improve my workflow, here is the link to the list.
