Satal Keto Posted September 27, 2008 Share Posted September 27, 2008 Hi, recently I have been thinking about trying to make myself a torrent box (similar to this) which also has the capability to download files from an RSS feed (so for example Hak5 episodes get downloaded automatically when they are added). Now the software part of this shouldn't be a problem, as I do plenty of programming already (although would probably be best for this to be written in C/C++ which I'm not fluent in, but I could still achieve the result with time), the problem for me is that I dont really want to be having an entire computer running for this as its space which could be used for other things (I only have a small flat). I was wondering whether anyone know's of anyway that I could have something like a router (Im not certain whether this is something which would be achievable with a Fon router) which runs Linux, allowing for a bit torrent client to be run and some software which would probably need to be created, which downloads files according to RSS feeds. It would probably only need enough storage for the OS and the software as would set up so files are downloaded to my network HDD. Hopefully someone might be able to give me some idea's on how I might be able to achieve this or if they know of a pre-existing system (no point re-inventing the wheel). Thanks for any suggestions/idea/etc. in advance Satal Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
