The leech user is here to manage torrent downloads and other leeching, how do I..?
Start a torrent download
Place the .torrent file you want to download in /home/leech/torrent/queue/
Monitor my download
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org screen -x
Or, if you have sudo access, you can do it with your normal user
ssh nix.is sudo screen -x leech/
DON'T use screen -rd as that will detach everyone else from the screen. (And on that subject read the `Not fuck shit up' section)
Start the torrent screen
If the torrent screen hasn't been started already this is how you start it:
See if any screen is running already:
leech@t:~$ screen -ls No Sockets found in /var/run/screen/S-leech.
No? Start it:
leech@t:~$ screen [detached]
Now you can see it has been started:
leech@t:~$ screen -ls There is a screen on: 19583.pts-3.t (Detached) 1 Socket in /var/run/screen/S-leech.
Then just re-attach as normal with screen -x
