DESCRIPTION

The transmissioncli program is a lightweight, command-line BitTorrent client with scripting capabilities.

The options are as follows:

−a, −-announce announce-url

When creating a new torrent, set its announce URL

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.

−c, −-comment comment-text

When creating a new torrent, set its comment field

−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

−r, −-private

When creating a new torrent, set its ’private’ flag

−s, −-scrape

Print the current number of seeders and leechers for the specified torrent

−t, −-tos

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