This app packages Transmission 3.00


Transmission is a cross-platform BitTorrent client.


  • Uses fewer resources than other clients
  • Daemon ideal for servers, embedded systems, and headless use
  • All these can be remote controlled by Web and Terminal clients
  • Local Peer Discovery
  • Full encryption, DHT, µTP, PEX and Magnet Link support


By default, this app is configured to, at the end of a download, automatically hard-link the downloaded files from /app/data/files/Downloading/ to /app/data/files/Downloaded/. This allows potential post-processing by other apps of the file in Downloaded, without interfering with seeding from the file in Downloading.

Also, it seeds torrents up to a ratio of 2, then automatically remove them, and removes the corresponding files from Downloading.

To change the configuration, you must edit the file /app/data/transmission-config/modifiable.settings.json then restart the app. Changing configuration from the web interface will not work.

Install Transmission in a few minutes on your server with Cloudron. To install Cloudron first, follow our setup steps.
