Full Description

docktorrent

Using Docker,
rTorrent and
ruTorrent to run a full-featured
BitTorrent box.

Highlights

  • All-in-one Docker container, build once and run everywhere.
  • Newest version of rTorrent and ruTorrent, with support of DHT and
    asynchronous DNS which will result in a more responsive rTorrent.
  • Enable all useful ruTorrent plugins by default.
  • Get a working BitTorrent box in less than 3 minutes, give it a quick try
    and tune the configs later.
  • rTorrent will automatically restarts on crash or freeze.
  • No more boring installation, also keep your OS in a clean state.

Quick Start

Clone this repository and build the image locally:

git clone https://github.com/GuillaumeLebeau/docktorrent
cd docktorrent
docker build -t docktorrent .

The building process may take some time. You can just pull the latest image
from mine:

docker pull guillaumegl/docktorrent

After the image is built or pulled, run the docktorrent container, for example:

docker run -it \
    -p 80:80 -p 45566:45566 -p 9527:9527/udp \
    --dns 8.8.8.8 \
    -v /data-store:/data/torrent \
    -e UPLOAD_RATE=1024 \
    docktorrent

Note that:

  • The exposed ports are required for ruTorrent web interface, rTorrent
    listening and the DHT protocol according to the default .rtorrent.rc.
  • The --dns 8.8.8.8 argument is optional but recommended. It seems like the
    current version of rTorrent still has some DNS
    issues
    , using Google's
    DNS may help.
  • The /data-store volume is for all downloads, torrents and session data,
    just make sure the disk space is enough.
  • Override the upload_rate setting of rTorrent to 1024KB. Check the full list of
    available runtime configs.

If the container starts without errors, visit http://127.0.0.1 through any web
browser, log in to with the default username/password: docktorrent/p@ssw0rd.

Happy seeding!

Runtime Configs

There are some environment variables can be supplied at run time:

  • LOGS_OFF: Set this to yes to turn off all logs generated by rTorrent
    and other services so that you don't have to worry about space for
    /var/log. Default is not set.
  • AUTH_OFF: Disable HTTP authentication on certain network. E.g.,
    192.168.1.0/24 or all.
