#3141 closed Bug (fixed)

Description

Downstream ticket:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/transmission/+bug/542194

The default install of the Transmission client has the "Web Client" feature enabled by default, which leaves an open listening server. I don't think that this should be enabled by default, so that users don't have server processes running without their knowledge, for security reasons. Is there any way to disable this by default?
