    Are you trying to connect this for access remotely, over the Internet? – tobyd Jan 20 '17 at 9:28
  • Besides being off-topic because the question is completely non-related, visit whathaveyoutried.com. It's not about developers only. – techraf Jan 20 '17 at 9:33
  • Did you click on menu - Preferences - Enable Web Client yet? – Dmitry Grigoryev Jan 22 '17 at 13:10
  • Alan, your question is extremely open ended, and is likely answerable from a simple google search. What have you tried so far? Have you followed a guide and gotten stuck? Do you have an error message? – Jacobm001 Jan 23 '17 at 19:14

transmission doesn't support HTTPS web interface, and as far as I know there are no plans to add such a feature. To get the web interface work with HTTPS, you'll have to install an HTTPS-capable proxy, or a web server with proxy capabilities, like nginx. Install it with apt-get install nginx and follow this answer to make it work with transmission.

You'll also need an SSL certificate to verify the identity of your server. You can generate a certificate yourself (as the answer I linked to describes), but you'll have to check the certificate manually every time you connect. A better solution would be to obtain a free SSL certificate that your browser could validate automatically, e.g. from https://letsencrypt.org/.
