transmission-remote CLI for Mac OS X

Postby mcandre » Fri Jan 09, 2015 8:56 pm

I would like Transmission for Mac OS X to bundle the transmission-remote command line program, so that I can connect over command line to the transmission servers on my other computers, without having to SSH.

FWIW (and apologies if you are already aware of this technique), but it might be more secure to simply pass commands over SSH rather than exposing a new service. For example:

Code: Select all

for server in a b c; do ssh mcandre@$server.example.com -C "cd /some/path && transmission-remote -whatever"; done


That will SSH into a.example.com, b.example.com, and c.example.com and execute the parameter -C as a command.

SSH is find and all, but this requires the client to have SSH installed. Many Windows users do not have SSH. Just because you can port forward something doesn't mean you should. There's a reason the transmission-remote program exists.
