What blocklist does Transmission Use?
Transmission supports the P2P Plaintext Format, which is used by PeerGuardian, Bluetack, Vuze, ProtoWall, and KTorrent, and the DAT format, which was originally made popular by eMule.The Transmission Project does not evaluate or endorse any specific blocklists. If you do not know what blocklist to use, you might read about some third-party blocklists and evaluate them on your own.
If “Enable automatic updates” is enabled, Transmission will periodically refresh its copy of your blocklist from your specified URL.When you press the `Update Blocklist’ button, Transmission will download a new copy of your blocklist.Adding Other BlocklistsTransmission stores blocklists in a folder named blocklists in its configuration folder.In that directory, files ending in “.bin” are blocklists that Transmission has parsed into a binary format suitable for quick lookups. When transmission starts, it scans this directory for files not ending in “.bin” and tries to parse them. So to add another blocklist, all you have to do is put it in this directory and restart Transmission. Text and gzip formats are supported.
