Transmission is probably the most famous torrent client in the Gnu/Linux world, and it’s very often used even on other operating systems. It’s really easy to use, and its graphical interface is very intuitive; however in this tutorial we will see how to install
transmission-daemon and run transmission on a headless machine: that’s an ideal setup to create a “Torrent-box”, using for example a Raspberry Pi, to reduce power usage.
Once installed and configured, we will be able to manage the application using the web interface. For the sake of this tutorial I will install transmission-daemon on a Raspberry Pi, using the Raspbian operating system, however the same instructions should work on Ubuntu and Debian.
