NOTE: It seems that you can only download one torrent at a time, from the command line. And, more importantly, it seems that I have had different results on two, identical boxes. I think that one box did not have transmission installed (I think that was the difference). Also, two different syntax versions seemed to work on different boxes.
- apt-get install transmission transmission-cli
/usr/bin/transmissioncli -D -w 6885 example.torrent, OR:
/usr/bin/transmissioncli -p 6882 7.torrent
- Check port: netstat -anp | grep transmission
- You must manually kill the process thusly: killall transmissioncli (no hyphen)
