NAME
     transmission-cli -- a bittorrent client

SYNOPSIS
     transmission-cli -h
     transmission-cli [-b | -B]	[-d number | -D] [-er |	-ep | -et] [-f script]

DESCRIPTION
     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
	     Disable 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

	     https://github.com/transmission/transmission/wiki/Configuration-
	     Files for more information.

     -h, --help
	     Prints a short usage summary.

     -m, --portmap

     -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 tos
	     Set the peer socket TOS for local router-based traffic shaping.
	     Valid values are

	     "default",	"lowcost", "throughput", "reliability",	"lowdelay",

	     a decimal value 0-255 or a	hexidecimal value 0x00-0xff)

     -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.

	     future seeding and	resume operations.
