How to add trackers for transmission-daemon?

Postby sraw3 » Fri Jun 15, 2018 6:48 am

I'm using transmission-daemon with its default web-ui. As the default tracker list is almost out-of-date, download speed is slow.

I was using aria2 previously, and in aria2, I can manually add trackers. How could I accomplish the same thing for transmission-daemon?

BTW, I'm not very familiar with bt. Sometimes I see some solutions about adding trackers to a torrent file? What is that? Does it mean trackers can be embedded into torrent files? But I think the downloader could still use additional trackers right? Just like how aria2 works.

Thanks in advance!

Don't know if this is what you want.

Code: Select all

[jsntyyl@raspberry_pi ~]$ transmission-edit --help
Usage: transmission-edit [options] torrent-file(s)

 -h --help                Display this help page and exit
 -a --add     <url>       Add a tracker's announce URL
 -d --delete  <url>       Delete a tracker's announce URL
 -r --replace <old> <new> Search and replace a substring in the announce URLs
 -V --version             Show version number and exit
[jsntyyl@raspberry_pi ~]$
