transmission-cli — a bittorrent client
transmission-cli -h transmission-cli [-b | -B] [-d number | -D] [-er | -ep | -et] [-f script] [-g directory] [-h] [-m | -M] [-p port] [-t] [-u number | -U] [-v] [-w directory] torrent-file
The transmission-cli program is a lightweight, command-line BitTorrent client with scripting capabilities. 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" subdirectory. -B --no-blocklist Disble blocklists. -d, --downlimit number Set the maximum download speed in KB/s -D, --no-downlimit Don't limit the download speed -er --encryption-required Encrypt all peer connections. -ep --encryption-preferred Prefer encrypted peer connections. -et --encryption-tolerated Prefer unencrypted peer connections. -f, --finish script 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 cli, daemon, gtk, and qt clients. See http://trac.transmissionbt.com/wiki/ConfigFiles for more information. -h, --help Prints a short usage summary. -m, --portmap Enable portmapping via NAT-PMP or UPnP -M, --no-portmap Disable portmapping -n, --new sourcefile Create torrent from the specified file or directory -p, --port port Set the port to listen for incoming peers. (Default: 51413) -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 -v, --verify Verify the torrent's downloaded data. -w, --download-dir directory Where to save downloaded data.
In addition to these options, sending transmission-cli a SIGHUP signal will contact the tracker for more peers.
TRANSMISSION_HOME Sets the default config-dir. http_proxy libcurl uses this environment variable when performing tracker announces.
~/.config/transmission Directory where transmission-cli keeps torrent information for future seeding and resume operations.
The transmission-cli program was written by Eric Petit, Josh Elsasser, Jordan Lee, and Mitchell Livingston.
