Notes from UPDATING
These upgrade notes are taken from /usr/ports/UPDATING
  • 2018-01-15
    Affects: users of net-p2p/transmission-daemon
    Author: woodsb02@FreeBSD.org
    Reason: 
      The transmission-daemon port has been updated to 2.92_4 to incorporate
      a patch which mitigates DNS rebinding attacks. This will prevent
      clients from being able to connect to the transmission daemon using
      DNS with any hostname other than localhost, unless one of the
      following is done:
        - Enable password authentication, then any hostname is allowed.
          This can be achieved by either:
            - setting rpc-authentication-required to true, and adding
              credentials to the rpc-username and rpc-password fields in
              settings.json (must be done whilst the transmission service is
              stopped); or
            - running transmission-daemon with the following arguments
              (these can be set with transmission_flags in /etc/rc.conf):
              -t -u USERNAME -v PASSWORD
        OR
        - Add the allowed server hostnames to the rpc-host-whitelist setting
          in settings.json (must be done whilst the transmission service is
          stopped). Note that this value is NOT a list of allowed CLIENTS,
          but instead a list of allowed SERVER hostnames.
    
    
  • 2009-06-19
    Affects: users of net-p2p/transmission-daemon
    Author: mezz@FreeBSD.org
    Reason: 
      The UID/GID of transmission has been changed from 919 to 921. The data
      configure has been changed from ${PREFIX}/etc/transmission/home/.config
      to ${PREFIX}/etc/transmission/home. To update the UID/GID:
    
    	# pw groupmod transmission -g 921
    	# pw usermod transmission -u 921 -g 921

The transmission-daemon is a daemon-based Transmission session that can
be controlled via IPC commands by transmission-remote (included).

Transmission is a free, lightweight BitTorrent client. It features a
simple, intuitive interface on top on an efficient, cross-platform
back-end.

I am getting more and more requests lately, some users want to use Clutch. The
Clutch is using transmission-daemon to control the torrent by via web-based
interface.

http://clutchbt.com/

I have no interest in Clutch, so don't bother to ask me to create Clutch port.
I do not really know anything about transmission-daemon, so test and report me
bugs as usually.
