NAME
transmission-daemon -- a bittorrent client SYNOPSIS
transmission-daemon -h transmission-daemon [-a x.x.x.x,...] [-b | -B] [-c directory] [-C] [-f] [-g directory] [-h] [-p port] [-t | -T] [-u username] [-v password] [-P port] [-m | -M] [-l limit] [-L limit] [-er | -ep | -et] [-utp | -no-utp] [-V] [-w download-dir] [-e logfile] [-log-error | -log-info | -log-debug] DESCRIPTION
transmission-daemon is a daemon-based Transmission session that can be controlled via RPC commands from transmission's web interface or transmission-remote(1). OPTIONS
-a --allowed x.x.x.x,... Allow RPC access to a comma-delimited whitelist of IP addresses. Wildcards can be specified in an address by using '*'. Default: "127.0.0.1" Example: "127.0.0.*,192.168.1.*" -b --blocklist Enable peer blocklists. Transmission understands the bluetack blocklist file format. New blocklists can be added by copying them into the config-dir's "blocklists" subdirectory. -c directory Directory to watch for new .torrent files to be added. As they are added to this directory, the daemon will load them into Transmis- sion. -C Do not watch for new .torrent files. -B --no-blocklist Disble blocklists. -f --foreground Run in the foreground and print errors to stderr. -g --config-dir directory Where to look for configuration files. This can be used to swap between using the cli, daemon, gtk, and qt clients. See http://trac.transmissionbt.com/wiki/ConfigFiles for more information. -er --encryption-required Encrypt all peer connections. -ep --encryption-preferred Prefer encrypted peer connections. -et --encryption-tolerated Prefer unencrypted peer connections. -gsr --global-seedratio ratio All torrents, unless overridden by a per-torrent setting, should seed until a specific ratio -GSR --no-global-seedratio All torrents, unless overridden by a per-torrent setting, should seed regardless of ratio -h --help Print command-line option descriptions. --incomplete-dir dir When adding new torrents, store their contents in directory until the torrent is done. --no-incomplete-dir Don't store incomplete torrents in a different directory. -i --bind-address-ipv4 Listen for IPv4 BitTorrent connections on a specific address. Only one IPv4 listening address is allowed. Default: 0.0.0.0 (All addresses) -I --bind-address-ipv6 Listen for IPv6 BitTorrent connections on a specific address. Only one IPv6 listening address is allowed. Default: :: (All addresses) -r --rpc-bind-address Listen for RPC connections on a specific address. This must be an IPv4 address. Only one RPC listening address is allowed. Default: 0.0.0.0 (All addresses) --paused Pause all torrents on startup -L --peerlimit-global limit Overall peer limit. Useful on embedded systems where the default might be unsuitable. Default: 240 -l --peerlimit-torrent limit Peer limit per torrent. Useful on embedded systems where the default might be unsuitable. Default: 60 -m --portmap Enable portmapping via NAT-PMP or UPnP -M --no-portmap Disable portmapping -o --dht Enable distributed hash table (DHT). -O --no-dht Disable distribued hash table (DHT). -p --port port Port to open and listen for RPC requests on. Default: 9091 -P, --peerport port Port to listen for incoming peers on. Default: 51413 -t --auth Require clients to authenticate themselves. This doesn't do much good unless username and password are also set. -T --no-auth Don't require authentication from clients. -u --username username Used for client authentication. -v --password password Used for client authentication. -V --version Show version number and exit --utp Enable uTP for peer connections. --no-utp Disable uTP for peer connections. -w --download-dir Where to store downloaded data. -e --logfile Where to store transmission's log messages. --log-error Show error messages --log-info Show error and info messages --log-debug Show error, info, and debug messages ENVIRONMENT
http_proxy libcurl uses this environment variable when performing tracker announces. TRANSMISSION_HOME Sets the default config-dir. FILES
~/.config/transmission-daemon The config-dir used when neither [TRANSMISSION_HOME] nor [-g] is specified. See http://trac.transmissionbt.com/wiki/ConfigFiles for more information. AUTHORS
