Transmission is a file sharing program.
When you run a torrent, its data will be made available to others by means of upload.
Any content you share is your sole responsibility.
An easy way to put .torrent files in a dropbox folder and will be downloaded automatically by Transmission and create .txt files as confirmation :)
1 - Install Dropbox-Uploader, type in terminal:
2 - Fix root account for the cron service
3 - Create torrent-watch script in /opt/etc/cron.5mins/ folder
Paste this lines in terminal
if [ -z "$TR_TORRENT_NAME" ]
dropbox_uploader list | grep -iE "^ [F] .+.torrent$" |
sed "s|^ [F] ||g" |
while read item
dropbox_uploader download "$item" "/opt/etc/transmission/watchdir/$item"
dropbox_uploader delete "$item"
echo "Donwload job done at `date`" > "/tmp/$TR_TORRENT_NAME.txt"
dropbox_uploader upload "/tmp/$TR_TORRENT_NAME.txt" "/"
rm -f "/tmp/$TR_TORRENT_NAME.txt"
And make it executable
4 - Stop Transmission to edit settings file
And modify this 2 lines
Save with CTRL-O / Enter / and exit with CTRL-X
5 - Go to this page and choose Dropbox API app, Files and datastores, Yes, Provide an app name (choose another name if already taken) and click Create app
6 - Now start dropbox-uploader setup in terminal
Copy App key from dropbox web page and paste in terminal when asked
Copy App secret from dropbox web page and paste in terminal
7 - Open a new tab in browser and paste given address from terminal then press Allow
Press ENTER again in terminal, should get Setup completed!
Output should look like this
8 - Reboot router
After reboot, place some .torrent files inside newly created folder on dropbox, should be Dropbox/Apps/transmission-test1 (in red color should be your app name)
Now every 5 minutes, dropbox-uploader will look for new torrents files, copy to /opt/etc/transmission/watchdir and Transmission will start download automatically, when finished will create a text file in your dropbox folder with torrent name, inside every file you'll find terminating time.
