I began with which is online torrent which does not require any installation but it displayed a lot of annoying pop-ups with links to suspicious software. So I began to look for some torrent client for my CentOS 7 VM. There were a lot for Ubuntu but not so much for CentOS. Finally I found one. It is Transmission client torrent. Installation is simple:

# yum install epel-release
# yum install transmission
