Moves torrents from one transmission instance to another

Project Description

This script connects to two instances of transmission using the RPC interface and moves torrents from one to the other.

Example usage:

transmissiontransfer localhost –equivalent-path /Volumes/Kiff /shares/Kiff

This will add to the instance running on mybooklive any torrent that is on localhost and that is being saved to /Volumes/Kiff. The resultant torrents will be saved to /shares/Kiff. This allows files stored on an external drive to be migrated to another machine for managing longer term seeding.

For many files, simply re-adding the torrent to the new machine would be enough, however this script also ensures that all files and directories are correctly named, so if a file was renamed in the original torrent client (for example, to fit a local naming convention without breaking seeding) these names will be carried across.

The initial run of this will add any torrents and rename them as appropriate, before triggering a verification run. If it comes across any duplicate torrents that have been successfully verified it will stop them in source and start them in destination.
