Vuze (formally Azureus) has a web interface built in to it which you can
add/remove torrents and configure them. The web interface can be
accessed over the internet as long as you forward the necessary ports.
You'd need Java to be installed (sun-java6-jre I think, or I believe you
can get it with ubuntu-restriced-extras). I can't remember if Vuze is
in the repositories, however it can be downloaded from www.vuze.com as a
GZipped tar image.
