rtorrent resume download

Post by lenny76 » Fri Aug 04, 2006 6:48 pm

hi.
I'm trying rtorrent, but I cannot understand how to resume a download if I exit the program.
If I quit and restart rtorrent, the torrent in download is lost.

thanks
Lenny

I found that threa very useful but my question is.

each time you restart rtorrent you have to add the torrents by hand again.
you may however always start rtorrent with all the torrents as parameter => this way all the torrents will be loaded on startup.

IF you have your xbox running 24/7 and you login via ssh i suggest using the "screen" command. this way rtorrent continues running even when (ssh) disconnected from the xbox.

i suggest reading the rtorrent omepage since it is a very mighty and complex client with lots of configurable options

the resume exist in rtorrent.
you should resubmit the same torrent and it will continue the download after check of the hash.
so rtorrent does not save the active downloads. I suggest to save the torrent link in a txt file so you can resume the download easily in the case the xbox restarts.
