Feature requests for the Mac OS X version of Transmission
3 posts • Page 1 of 1
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:
That will SSH into a.example.com, b.example.com, and c.example.com and execute the parameter -C as a command.
Code: Select all
for server in a b c; do ssh mcandre@$server.example.com -C "cd /some/path && transmission-remote -whatever"; done
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.
