Can someone tell me what the best gui-less torrent client is for an Ubuntu server? I heard rtorrent was decent. Is that the only one?

There are many options; like amrypma mentioned, rtorrent works fine. I prefer transmission, just a matter of taste I think :).

You may want to look into a combination of rtorrent and wtorrent. I've been using it and like having the webUI available. The learning curve is certainly a bit lower than std CLI rtorrent, but it wouldn't hurt to learn it while you're at it.

I use torrentflux on my server. It is a webbased GUI, that way I can accesses it from any PC & download what I need.

torrentflux or torrentflux-b4rt,

was using torrentflux for years but switched over to torrentflux-b4rt about 6 months ago.

torrentflux is as simple as:

sudo apt-get install torrentflux

then browse to your server: http://192.168.1.100/torrentflux


SIMPLES!

rTorrent :) I love it :) You can also get WebUIs for it now, Avalanche is one I believe.

After trying several several torrents clients the latest version of Deluge (http://dev.deluge-torrent.org/wiki/About) 1.2.1 is perfect for a headless server with a superb webui and remote GTK client!
