It's not quite so easy if you've got > 1 machine on your home network
and a typical NAT router.  I have the router set to point the
bittorrent ports at a single machine on the network, so normally I
have to copy the .torrent file over to that machine and then invoke
'bittorrent-curses foo.torrent' remotely.

I imagine this is a fairly common scenario, at least with stupid/old
routers like mine.

Rich.

PS. bittorrent-curses may not be the latest or greatest, but it
certainly seems to do the job.
