Installing Torrent Client on CentOS VM

By | February 1, 2022

Torrenting on virtual space on your device is more secure that host machine environment. Isolated VM environment protects somehow from malicious software. However it is 100% secure. I began with webtor.io which is online torrent which does not require any installation but it displayed a lot of annoying pop-ups with links to suspicious software. So I began to look for some torrent client for my CentOS 7 VM. There were a lot for Ubuntu but not so much for CentOS. Finally I found one. It is Transmission client torrent. Installation is simple:


# yum install epel-release
# yum install transmission

Main related files:


/root/.cache/transmission
/root/.config/transmission
/usr/bin/transmission-create
/usr/bin/transmission-edit
/usr/bin/transmission-remote
/usr/bin/transmission-show
/usr/bin/transmission-gtk
/usr/lib/firewalld/services/transmission-client.xml
/usr/share/doc/transmission-common-2.94
/usr/share/applications/transmission-gtk.desktop

Running process:


# ps -e -o ppid,pid,command | grep transmission
