I gave that a try, but am not advanced enough to make it work though. I first
tried rtorrent torrent. It began a download but did not see my files from
the already downloaded torrent being transferred over.
I tried rtorrent -b 127.0.0.1 torrent
then tried rtorrent -b 127.0.0.1 -i 127.0.0.1 torrent
neither connected to my files.
If what I am doing wrong is something obvious let me know I will try it. Have manually
copied the files after using lsof to find the inodes, so am asking mostly
from curiousity whether I missed something when trying your suggestion.
