Azureus vs. KTorrent

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 71.168.82.94] on August 03, 2007 01:40 PM
I've used a bunch of linux torrent clients and nothing reaches perfection yet.

Lately, I've been using Azureus because of it's queue management and IP blocking capabilities.

Torrentflux was my preferred client for the last year and half but it's queue management is extremely lacking (and it has no IP blocking). Can't beat the remote management capabilities though.

For command line usage, the plain old btlaunchcursesmany works well and is screen friendly (but no queue management).

I've tried ~really~ hard to use KTorrent but it's been too unstable on the several systems I've tried. (Queue management and IP blocking are good; remote management is borked).

I'm waiting for a native utorrent client (I know it works with wine; phooey on that). Now that Google owns them, I hope they're stepping up the Linux porting effort.
