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

Enable distributed hash table (DHT).

-O --no-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
