Introduction about I2pTransmission[edit]

Transmission is an Bittorrent Client mainly developed for Mac but have extended to Linux and also Windows.

"I2pTransmission" is also known as "I2p Bob Transmission" (because it use the I2P's "BOB bridge" API). First released in 2009.

This Bittorrent client have 4 different clients:

  • Daemon/Web: this is very nice because you can run your bittorrent client on an headless server while adding and controlling torrents via a Web GUI using the daemon.
  • CLI/Remote: it is a command line client that can run stand alone or controlling the daemon.
  • GTK: it is an standalone client
  • QT: it is under heavy development (2009) and is going to be both standalone client and remote client for the daemon.
