I have a small problem with my headless raspbian torrentbox, when I reboot transmission-daemon is running:

simone@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo service transmission-daemon status
[sudo] password for simone:

   Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/transmission-daemon.service; enabled)

but transmission-remote is not working:

[2017-05-01 10:54:15.719 EDT] transmission-remote:  (http://localhost:9091/transmission/rpc/) Couldn't connect to server

When I restart transmission-daemon transmission-remote starts working again, do you have any idea why?

Thank you

Try to enable "Wait for Network at Boot" at sudo raspi-config, this works for me
