sudo apt-get install transmission-daemon
sudo /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon start

Then point your web browser at http://raspberrypi.local:9091/

Thank you for your instruction. Unfortunately I run into a 404/403/401 situation. http-ing to raspberrypi.local results in "Page not found". Using localhost.local or the actual hostname lets pop up a login window and neither the default pi/raspberry nor the actual user/password combination give access. So 401 unauthorized.

Please elucidate further
Thank you

Update:

Reading the settings.json file helps a lot. Username is transmission pw - you would never geuss - is transmission.

Use the IP address for your RPi rather than raspberry.local

well ty It turns out the tutorials I went thru wer rong on the seting's wightlist ip. I saw multipul times that I can edit the file to have "*.*.*.*" for all ip adress's. But it dos not work for local pc I had to add the local pc's ip adress.

Also thay had the rong cmd for starting and stoping the serves. >_<

EDIT: I see the transmission tl gui on my pi deasctop toll bar. will this lag down my PI zero ?

The usual thing is to have 0.0.0.0 (IN_ADDR_ANY) for a listener address as that means it listens on all interfaces and isn't restricted to any specific address block.

ok I have ben trying for 2 days to get transmission + PIA set up. I get error user permistion on all torents after a few minits of downloading. I have an external hdd with ntsf/fat32.
I tryed this one .. "http://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/qu ... n-usb-disk"
And now its emediatly error.

also what is the line in the transmision json file
"umask": 2,
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
After lots of reading and frustration. First of all, make sure the normal user has read and write acces to the USB drive. The correct 'non-root' fix for having write acces to the USB drive is:

Step 1: Stop transmission daemon

sudo service transmission-daemon stop

Step 2: Add pi to debian-transmission group

sudo usermod -a -G debian-transmission pi

Step 3: changing the daemon-user

sudo nano /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon

Change USER to pi.

Step 4 Change the rights of the configuration files folder

sudo chown -R pi /var/lib/transmission-daemon/info/
sudo chmod 755 /var/lib/transmission-daemon/info/settings.json

Step 5: Set the correct permissions for the download / incomplete folders

sudo chown -R pi /somewhere/downloads
sudo chown -R pi /somewhere/incomplete

Step 5: Start transmission daemon

sudo service transmission-daemon start
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

EDDIT: well dame now wen I try to conect to transmission web I get a pop up saying connection Failed and wen I click on details nuthing hapens

EDDIT: I reinstaled transmission daemon and left it at defalt setings and it works fine. But I want to use a external hdd.

The transmission daemon ALWAYS overwrites the config file when it closes down. So you MUST close it before you edit your configuration or you WILL lose your changes.

Yes it's insane, yes it's carp programming, yes it's an incredibly bad design, but you can't avoid that.

Mount the harddrive on a mount point in /etc/fstab (in my case it's mounted on /shared). Update your transmission settings.json file with

Code: Select all

    "download-dir": "/shared/transmission-daemon/Downloads",
    "incomplete-dir": "/shared/transmission-daemon/incomplete",

The only thaing I can thaink of is I did chang the umask line in the transission json file. I dont remimber what the defalt value was but I have my file ate "umask": 2,

Change the mount command (or fstab line) so that you give the mounted filesystem the right uid=xxx and gid=xxx for transmission.

On my system that would need mount -t ntfs-3g -o uid=117,gid=124 /dev/sda1 /shared

The alternative is to format the hard drive as ext4 then the normal Linux owner, group and permissions stuff will "just work".

ok well I went with ext4.
only problem I'm having is wen start up I get emergency mode!
If I remove the fstab editing I put in it sems to help it boot past the emergency mode! I have to remove my edit every time I unplug/power off the zero.
I'm prety sher its becaus motorola lapdock usb ports dont power up untel after the pi starts.
at botum left it says [email protected]

well ty so much it turns out sume how I was using the rong partition id O_o
the -o stops raspbery from boting .. is it zero or ow ?
geting Error: Permistions denied on restarting partal files.
geting Error: No data found on new torrents.

EDIT: I had to do this :
chmod -R 777 xxxx
Is this a masive sucerity risk ?

You should never need to set rwxrwxrwx == 0777 permission bits - it is a security risk, the scale of the risk depends how open you make your system.

Change the ownership with chown to the uid.gid that needs to access the directories and files on that part of your filesystem.
