Hi Peter,

I hope it's ok if i just say Peter and not Dr. Pöml ?

I see. 

Maybe it could be useful to report this as a bug to Transmission development (which looks like an 
open source project, at first glance). The behaviour should be improved, I guess.

That could / should be done but im afraid thats not the end of the
story. Transmission ist just one of the clients with such behavior. I
can compile a list if you want.

In the last 3 weeks these clients hit my mirror with the following

203813 hits resulting in 74.05 GB Traffic.

So what is needed is a way to configure mirrors to be excluded from
being added to the url-list. Or when that is too much effort disabling
of the webseeds altogether.

Particular mirrors? Which ones do you think should be excluded?

I don't see many requests for torrents made by Transmission clients on our server: only about 5 
per day. Maybe it's not that serious? Who disliked this behaviour?

I think thats me.

Transmission clients seem to identify by their HTTP user agent header, so yes, in the end it 
should be practical to return webseed-free torrents to them.

Of course that should be possible but there are different clients as
mentioned above and i also don't support torrent at all. I looked into
that and it seems that torrent is not intended to be a daemon on linux
systems and therefore isn't very well supported at all.

Have a nice WE.
