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 Transmission.
-C
Do not watch for new .torrent files.
-B --no-blocklist
Disble blocklists.
-d
Dump transmission-daemon's settings to stderr.
-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

-o --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
