     The transmission-cli program is a lightweight, command-line BitTorrent client with scripting

     The options are as follows:

     -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"

     -B --no-blocklist
             Disble blocklists.

     -d, --downlimit number
             Set the maximum download speed in KB/s

     -D, --no-downlimit

     -er --encryption-required
             Encrypt all peer connections.

             Set a script to run when the torrent finishes

     -g, --config-dir directory
             Where to look for configuration files. This can be used to swap between using the

             Prints a short usage summary.

     -n, --new sourcefile
             Create torrent from the specified file or directory

     -t, --tos
             Set the peer socket TOS for local router-based traffic shaping.

     -u, --uplimit number
             Set the maximum upload speed in KB/s

     -U, --no-uplimit
             Don't limit the upload speed
