Are there any easy ways to do this?

I could use ssh to instruct Transmission's terminal client, but this is a rather long-handed way of doing this.

Is there a script or Firefox add-in that would do this?

I just wont to be able, for example go to the ubuntu download site (on my laptop) see the link for the torrent and in a few clicks start the server downloading it.

It is pretty simple if you have transmission-daemon installed, and the WebUI set up. It is basically copy torrent link, and paste on the WebUI.

Is that what you are looking for?

Thanks I didn't realise Transmission had a WebUI.
