I haven't used this torrent client so far (ctorrent is my
choice at the moment), but according to

it seems that you have to run a web server (I think locally),
e. g. Apache, and then connect to this server in order to
perform the actions with your client, such as entering

in your web browser - this assumes that the web server is
running and the PHP script is properly installed. It's possible
that you need to connect to a specific port (e. g. ":631" after
the local IP).

Doesn't torrentflux come with some documentation? Have a look
for it in /usr/local/share/doc where it should be.

The packagin list in the port's directory mentions "install.txt",
maybe this file contains the information needed?

Finally, does (the homepage of the project) have
some information?
