Transmission - accessing remotely
In addition to using Transmission's web UI it's also possible to access it remotely from your computer. This guide will show you how to get it set up. It doesn't really on any previous knowledge or expertise.
Download the software
Though there are several different programs that can connect to Transmission remotely, but the one which will work for you at Feral is Transmission Remote GUI. You should download the relevant version then open the program.
Configure your Transmission daemon
In Transmission Remote GUI, click the little arrow next to Connect to Transmission (in the top left of the window) and select New connection....
In the window that appears, you should provide the following information:
- Remote host:
- Use SSL
- Authentication required
- User name:
- Your Transmission username
- Your Transmission password
In the above, username is your actual username and server is replaced by the name of your server, e.g. zeus.
