DESCRIPTION

     transmission-remote is a remote control utility for transmission(1) and
     transmission-daemon(1).

     By default, transmission-remote connects to the transmission session at localhost:9091.
     Other sessions can be controlled by specifying a different host and/or port.

OPTIONS

     -a --add filenames-or-URLs
             Add torrents to transmission.

     -b --debug
             Enable debugging mode.

     -as --alt-speed
             Use the alternate Limits.

     -AS --no-alt-speed
             Don't use the alternate Limits.

     -asd --alt-speed-downlimit limit
             Limit the alternate download speed to limit kilobytes per second.

     -asu --alt-speed-uplimit limit
             Limit the alternate upload speed to limit kilobytes per second.

     -asc --alt-speed-scheduler
             Use the scheduled on/off times.

     -ASC --no-alt-speed-scheduler
             Don't use the scheduled on/off days and times.

     --alt-speed-time-begin time
             Time to start using the alt speed limits (in hhmm).

     --alt-speed-time-end time
             Time to stop using the alt speed limits (in hhmm).

     --alt-speed-days days
             Set the number of days on which to enable the speed scheduler, using a list such as
             "2,4-6".

     --torrent-done-script filename
             Specify a file to run each time a torrent finishes

             Don't store incomplete torrents in a different directory.

     -d --downlimit limit
             Limit the maximum download speed to limit kB/s.  If current torrent(s) are selected
             this operates on them. Otherwise, it changes the global setting.

             Disable download speed limits.  If current torrent(s) are selected this operates on
             them. Otherwise, it changes the global setting.

             #5 to the download list.

     -G --no-get all | file-index | files
             Mark file(s) for not downloading.

             All torrents, unless overridden by a per-torrent setting, should seed until a
             specific ratio

             to recently-active torrents; and specific torrents can be chosen by id or hash.  To
             set more than one current torrent, join their ids together in a list, such as
             "-t2,4,6-8" to operate on the torrents whose IDs are 2, 4, 6, 7, and 8.

                   d: We would download from this peer if they would let us
                   E: Encrypted connection
