rtorrent auto startup and shutdown
i have just started using rtorrent to replace azureus on a windows pc. for anyone in a similar position, its highly recommended!
i have a linksys nslu2 device, flashed with the debian distro. i have no x components installed, and can only access the device via ssh.
needing to continually reconnect/disconnect/etc, i have been lead down using "screen" and this works great.
having replaced the above application, due to my isp restraints, i need to pause/stop the downloads or kill the rtorrent process at specific times. so created a cron job as:
0 0 * * * screen rtorrent
i need another that finds this, and kills it or accesses it programmatically and pauses all downloads.
does anyone have details or pointers to this?
