What is BitTorrent?

BitTorrent is a protocol used for peer-to-peer file sharing suitable for distributing large amounts of data over the global sweetest nerdy Internet. BitTorrent is the most common protocol for transferring large files.

Kali Linux and any other Linux distribution don’t come with any BitTorrent client installed by default. You will have to download one install it, either from repositories or .deb package. Here is my top List of my most favorite Torrent Clients that Never disappoint.

  1. Deluge
  2. Qbittorent
  3. Transmission

Installing BitTorrent clients on Ubuntu / Debian / Kali Linux

1. Installing Deluge BitTorrent Client

Deluge utilizes a client/server model with “deluged” being daemon or service and the “deluge” being used to launch a GUI user interface. It is my best Kali Linux BitTorrent client that is super-fast and always reliable.

Installing deluge on any Debian derivative is easy. Open your terminal and type apt-get install deluge as shown below:

sudo apt-get install deluge

If you like using aptitude then type

sudo aptitude install deluge

You must have default Kali Linux Repositories to do so. read our Article on how to have Fastest Kali Linux Repositories.

2. Installing Qbittorrent BitTorrent Client

Qbittorent is another clean, fast, reliable and eye-candy Linux Bittorent Client. It works just like deluge.


How to install it in Kali Linux Kali Linux and Other Debian Based and Ubuntu Distros:

3. Installing Transmission Torrent Client


Transmission is another alternative to deluge and BitTorrent client for Unix/Linux. Transmission is fast and stable with no buggy slick. To install it, open your terminal and type:

sudo apt-get install transmission

To uninstall all the above three BitTorrent clients type

followed by the name of the torrent client you installed.
