That is not going to work. Something has to run the torrent client for  
the entire time you participate in that torrent.  You will need to (as  
others have suggested) have an external device that you run the  
torrent client on which writes the data somewhere (direct attached  
storage, nfs mount, smb share etc etc).

Hope this helps
