Docker + rtorrent = Docktorrent

I download a lot of linux images, by far the quickest way is via torrent. Recently discovered a nice implementation of rtorrent in a Docker image, via docktorrent, simple enough to run:

docker run -itd 
    -p 31405:80 
    -p 45566:45566 
    -p 9527:9527/udp 
    -v /path/to/mount/rtorrent:/rtorrent 
    -e UPLOAD_RATE=1024 

The 31405 is the public facing port for the web interface, make sure that you forward both 9527 and 45566 as it’ll need those to run.
