.Sh EXAMPLES
Connection information
.Ed
Authentication and host/port can be set via command line with one of these patterns:
.Bd -literal -offset indent
$ transmission-remote-cli \-c homeserver
$ transmission-remote-cli \-c homeserver:1234
$ transmission-remote-cli \-c johndoe:secretbirthday@homeserver
$ transmission-remote-cli \-c johndoe:secretbirthday@homeserver:1234
.Ed
Configuration file
.Ed
You can write this (and other settings) to a configuration file:
.Bd -literal -offset indent
$ transmission-remote-cli.py \-c johndoe:secretbirthday@homeserver:1234 \-\-create-config
.Ed
No configuration file is created automatically, you have to do this somehow. However, if the file exists, it is re-written when trcli exits to remember some settings. This means you shouldn't have trcli running when editing your configuration file.
.Ed
If you don't like the default configuration file path ~/.config/transmission-remote-cli/settings.cfg, change it:
.Bd -literal -offset indent
$ transmission-remote-cli.py -f ~/.trclirc --create-config
.Ed
Calling transmission-remote
.Ed
transmission-remote-cli forwards all arguments after '--' to transmission-remote. This is useful if your daemon requires authentication and/or doesn't listen on the default localhost:9091 for instructions. transmission-remote-cli reads HOST:PORT and authentication from the config file and forwards them on to transmission-remote, along with your arguments.
.Ed
Some examples:
.Bd -literal -offset indent
$ transmission-remote-cli.py -- -l
$ transmission-remote-cli.py -- -t 2 -i
$ transmission-remote-cli.py -- -as
.Ed
Add torrents
.Pp
If you provide only one command line argument and it doesn't start with '-', it's treated like a torrent file/URL and submitted to the daemon via transmission-remote.
This is useful because you can instruct Firefox to open torrent files with transmission-remote-cli.py.
.Bd -literal -offset indent
$ transmission-remote-cli.py http://link/to/file.torrent
$ transmission-remote-cli.py path/to/some/torrent-file
