DESCRIPTION
     transmission-daemon is a daemon-based Transmission	session	that can be
     controlled	via RPC	commands from transmission's web interface or
     transmission-remote(1).

OPTIONS
     -a	--allowed x.x.x.x,...
	     Allow RPC access to a comma-delimited whitelist of	IP addresses.
	     Wildcards can be specified	in an address by using '*'.  Default:
	     "127.0.0.1" Example: "127.0.0.*,192.168.1.*"

     -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.

     -c	directory
	     Directory to watch	for new	.torrent files to be added. As they
	     are added to this directory, the daemon will load them into
	     Transmission.

     -C	     Do	not watch for new .torrent files.

     -B	--no-blocklist
	     Disble blocklists.

     -d	     Dump transmission-daemon's	settings to stderr.

     -f	--foreground
	     Run in the	foreground and print errors to stderr.

     -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 informa-
	     tion.

     -er --encryption-required
	     Encrypt all peer connections.

     -ep --encryption-preferred
	     Prefer encrypted peer connections.

     -et --encryption-tolerated
	     Prefer unencrypted	peer connections.

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

     -GSR --no-global-seedratio
	     All torrents, unless overridden by	a per-torrent setting, should
	     seed regardless of	ratio

     -h	--help
	     Print command-line	option descriptions.

     --incomplete-dir dir
	     When adding new torrents, store their contents in directory until
	     the torrent is done.

     --no-incomplete-dir
	     Don't store incomplete torrents in	a different directory.

     -i	--bind-address-ipv4
	     Listen for	IPv4 BitTorrent	connections on a specific address.
	     Only one IPv4 listening address is	allowed. Default: 0.0.0.0 (All
	     addresses)

     -I	--bind-address-ipv6
	     Listen for	IPv6 BitTorrent	connections on a specific address.
	     Only one IPv6 listening address is	allowed. Default: :: (All ad-
	     dresses)

     -r	--rpc-bind-address
	     Listen for	RPC connections	on a specific address. This must be an
	     IPv4 address. Only	one RPC	listening address is allowed. Default:
	     0.0.0.0 (All addresses)

     --paused
	     Pause all torrents	on startup

     -L	--peerlimit-global limit
	     Overall peer limit. Useful	on embedded systems where the default
	     might be unsuitable. Default: 240

     -l	--peerlimit-torrent limit
	     Peer limit	per torrent. Useful on embedded	systems	where the de-
	     fault might be unsuitable.	Default: 60

     -m	--portmap
	     Enable portmapping	via NAT-PMP or UPnP

     -M	--no-portmap
	     Disable portmapping

     -o	--dht
	     Enable distributed	hash table (DHT).

     -O	--no-dht
	     Disable distribued	hash table (DHT).

     -p	--port port
	     Port to open and listen for RPC requests on. Default: 9091

     -P, --peerport port
	     Port to listen for	incoming peers on. Default: 51413

     -t	--auth
	     Require clients to	authenticate themselves.  This doesn't do much
	     good unless username and password are also	set.

     -T	--no-auth
	     Don't require authentication from clients.

     -u	--username username
	     Used for client authentication.

     -v	--password password
	     Used for client authentication.

     -V	--version
	     Show version number and exit

     --utp   Enable uTP	for peer connections.

     --no-utp
	     Disable uTP for peer connections.

     -w	--download-dir
	     Where to store downloaded data.

     -e	--logfile
	     Where to store transmission's log messages.

     --log-error
	     Show error	messages

     --log-info
	     Show error	and info messages

     --log-debug
	     Show error, info, and debug messages

		 Sets the default config-dir.

FILES
     ~/.config/transmission-daemon
	     The config-dir used when neither [TRANSMISSION_HOME] nor [-g] is
