I have an Ubuntu Server machine, which I access via SSH.
I want to use it to handle my torrents from any device and have them stored somewhere steadily.
Today I took the first step and installed the transmission package, along with the daemon, cli, etc..
So I was testing the basic functionality, and I noticed that the command
transmission-daemon + options behaved differently from the command
service transmission-daemon + options. Particularly, the first did not accept a straight
start option, for example.
So, in order not to confuse myself before proceeding, and since this could help me more generally, I would like to have an informative and understandable description of what I should be aware of with regards to services and daemons, how are they implemented, roughly, and any information that could help me handle the transmission daemon, in particular.
