Another thumbs up for  torrentflux here... plenty of guides for setting
it up... worked nice. 

But another alternative is to simply ssh into your box and use rtorrent.

The only drawback is that you need to either have the .torrent stored
locally or know its location to enter as url when specifying a new
torrent to start. But thats what I use. Worse coming to worst, I just
VNC's into my box at home so I could use the browser there to find/store
