Try running the daemon manually and/or set --log-debug for better logging.

/usr/bin/transmission-daemon -f --log-debug

Hi x190,

I tried your command but getting an error

[root@localhost log]# /usr/bin/transmission-daemon -f --log-error
/usr/bin/transmission-daemon: error while loading shared libraries: libnatpmp.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Please help, Am i missing any steps ?

Thanks.

I was fighting with this issue as well. It seems that the Transmission package on the EPEL repo fails to specify libnatpmp as a dependancy.
Run 'yum install libnatpmp' and restart the transmission service and you should be all set.
