I have installed Transmission service on Centos. It is running. The problem is when I type myservername/transmission in my browser address it doesn't open. It was working before.

When you say it was working before, what changed? What was the before/after condition? Did you check your options under transmission to see if the web service is still enabled? – Caleb Nov 13 '12 at 12:30

Open transmission. Go to Preferences and select Web tab and check the transmission web client settings.

  • Check web client is enabled
  • Check the listening port

You need a port to connect to the web client for example http://localhost:9091


Transmission-daemon (Commandline) Open /etc/transmission-daemon/settings.json and change the settings accordingly. Specially below values.

"rpc-whitelist": "",
"rpc-whitelist-enabled": false,

Are you using the command line version.(transmission-daemon). If you are using GUI version type transmission on terminal and follow my instructions. – Manula Waidyanatha Nov 13 '12 at 12:23
