Transmission docker container

What is Transmission?

Transmission is a BitTorrent client which features a simple interface on top of
a cross-platform back-end.

How to use this image

This Transmission container was built to automatically download a level1 host
filter (can be used with dperson/openvpn).

sudo docker run --cap-add=NET_ADMIN --device /dev/net/tun --name vpn \
            --dns --dns --restart=always \
            -d dperson/openvpn-client ||
sudo docker run --name bit --net=container:vpn \
            -d dperson/transmission
sudo docker run --name web -p 80:80 -p 443:443 --link vpn:bit \
            -d dperson/nginx -w "http://bit:9091/transmission;/transmission"

Hosting a Transmission instance

sudo docker run --name transmission -p 9091:9091 -d dperson/transmission

OR set local storage:

sudo docker run --name transmission -p 9091:9091 \
            -v /path/to/directory:/var/lib/transmission-daemon/downloads \
            -d dperson/transmission


sudo docker run -it --rm dperson/transmission -h

Usage: [-opt] [command]
Options (fields in '[]' are optional, '<>' are required):
    -h          This help
    -t ""       Configure timezone
                possible arg: "[timezone]" - zoneinfo timezone for container

The 'command' (if provided and valid) will be run instead of transmission

ENVIROMENT VARIABLES (only available with docker run)

  • TRUSER - Set the username for transmission auth (default 'admin')
  • TRPASSWD - Set the password for transmission auth (default 'admin')
  • TZ - As above, set a zoneinfo timezone, IE EST5EDT


Any of the commands can be run at creation with docker run or later with
docker exec (as of version 1.3 of docker).

Setting the Timezone

sudo docker run --name transmission -d dperson/transmission -t EST5EDT

OR using environment variables

sudo docker run --name transmission -e TZ=EST5EDT -d dperson/transmission

Will get you the same settings as

sudo docker run --name transmission -p 9091:9091 -d dperson/transmission
sudo docker exec transmission -t EST5EDT \
            ls -AlF /etc/localtime
sudo docker restart transmission
