Web Interface

The Web Interface is a web-based frontend to most Transmission clients (eg. the daemon, GTK, and Mac clients, but not the cli).

Once you have set it up, you can open a web browser and direct it to (replace with the IP where Transmission is running, 9091 is the default port).

To Enable

  • Make sure you have the files installed in the correct location
  • To turn on the Web Interface:

Note: the daemon always has the rpc / Web Interface turned on.


Mac OS X Defaults

The Mac GUI packages the Web Interface in its application bundle, so there is no need to manually install or update the bundle.

If you do want to use a custom Web Interface use the environment variable. eg.:

$ export TRANSMISSION_WEB_HOME=/path/to/web/files
$ open -a Transmission

Linux Defaults

The Linux daemon will look for the Web Interface files in:

  1. $TRANSMISSION_WEB_HOME, if the environment variable is set
  2. $XDG_DATA_HOME/transmission/web, if XDG environment variables are set by the system
  3. $HOME/.local/share/transmission/web
  4. /usr/local/share/transmission/web
  5. /usr/share/transmission/web

Web Proxy
