Hi Javad,

I use torrentflux and I would recommend it as torrent client for remote
access.  It's especially useful if you have a dedicated computer you use
as a 'home server' with bulk storage.

Here is one guide that looks quite complete, except i'd ignore the
'vmware' references and assume it to be normal machine:
http://www.howtoforge.com/ubuntu_lamp_torrentflux_vmware

If you need some help installing it, i'd join the IRC chat channel
#ubuntu-uk and I'll happily guide you through it.
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InternetRelayChat has further
information on IRC.

Kind Regards,
Dave Walker
