apt-get install transmission-daemon

after installation, Transmission is running on port 9091. To access to Interface, type on the browser your IP address and Transmission port: 192.168.*.*:9091

You might need to configure user and password. Configuration parameters are in file: /etc/transmission-daemon/settings.json.
Please stop the application before changing any config values: /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon stop and start it again after you are done: /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon start
