here i am installing transmission on ubuntu (any version of ubuntu just works fine)

  • Install repositories for transmission
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:transmissionbt/ppa
  • Update repositories
sudo apt-get update
  • Install transmission
sudo apt-get install transmission-cli transmission-common transmission-daemon


  • first stop the transmission service
sudo service transmission-daemon stop
  • edit /var/lib/transmission-daemon/info/settings.json
sudo nano /var/lib/transmission-daemon/info/settings.json

The default rpc-username and password is “transmission”

change the password to whatever you want. Just search for rpc-password

and rpc-username

"rpc-password": "{62b16db87b89a91dd49a5110a7cafc06d20eb4f2wtK6kqPj",
"rpc-username": "transmission",
  • One important thing in setup is whitelist. By default it will be only for localhost ( . Change it to your ip address ( so only you can have access and others cant.)

If you have a random ip address each time then just change whitelist enabled option to false from true.

Once desired changes are done, you can press ctrl+X, then press Y and then press enter.

  • Now you have to restart the transmission daemon

use following command to start it

sudo service transmission-daemon start

Now you can access transmission at http://your ip:9091
