Transmission is a bittorrent client which features a variety of user interfaces on top of a cross-platform back-end. It is free software licensed under the terms of the GNU General Public License, with parts under the MIT License.
Open Source - Transmission is an open source, volunteer-based project. Unlike some BitTorrent clients, Transmission doesn't play games with its users to make money
Easy - Transmission is designed for easy, powerful use. We've set the defaults to Just Work and it only takes a few clicks to configure advanced features like watch directories, bad peer blocklists, and the web interface. When Ubuntu chose Transmission as its default BitTorrent client, one of the most-cited reasons was its easy learning curve.
Lean - In separate benchmarks, Linux Format and Lacrocivious both found Transmission to use less CPU than any other GUI client. It even used less CPU than some non-GUI clients. Transmission also has the lowest memory footprint of any major BitTorrent client. Imageshack chose Transmission for its BitTorrent farms because the competition requires amounts of memory several times greater than Transmission.
Native - Unlike many cross-platform applications, Transmission integrates seamlessly with your operating system. The GTK+ interface has been carefully written to follow the GNOME Human Interface Guidelines. If your desktop supports popup notifications, desktop sounds, and a system tray, the GTK+ interface will make use of them.
Powerful - Transmission has the features you want from a BitTorrent client: encryption, a web interface, peer exchange, magnet links, DHT, µTP, UPnP and NAT-PMP port forwarding, webseed support, watch directories, tracker editing, global and per-torrent speed limits, and more.
All our seedboxes come pre-configured with transmission and are ready for use. However, if you want a different version, then you can install transmission via SSH.
