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.
