nobody wrote:I like TPB even though there are alternatives. This forum section is completely filled with requests for software for which there are ample alternatives. Why not this one?

Besides, there is a good chance other or even most torrent sites will start using magnetlinks in the future, so the request for magnetlinks to be supported by the B3 is not unreasonable.
I agree, and like johannes stated above, they're looking into it. I just had to ask regarding TPB, completely off-topic =)

+1 for me too.

Just bought a B3 and had such big plans. Haven't really got to use it much yet though, partly because of the magnet link issue.

Transmission is not an alternative for me as I need the web gui.

Any news on this front?? FOr me personally the lack of magnetlinks pretty much removes the torrent options and makes me look at the competition.

Well, the webgui is on by default. There is tricky to get it running though... ;)

You need to point your browser to http://b3.local:9091 and log in with your username and password you have defined for Transmisson, and that´s it.

It´s a really solid client and with the webgui or the gui on osx/windows/linux it works like magic. :)

Yeah that could have worked, but in my specific case I cannot access that port from my work compu, which is something I do a lot during lunch breaks. There's been people suggesting I change torrent sites. Are they suggesting I change my job now too because my NAS cannot handle magnetlinks properly?

changing the port is pretty straight forward:

(Also note that DHT already is there, but has to be manually enabled in the config file).
Of-topic... Bubbalove...

What about magnetlinks for us that don't master Linux that well?
What's the eta. of the above?

@Harry, sorry but this project is still a moving target for us, we have to focus on other stuff right now. I understand your frustration though, so I created a as low-tech as possible howto here:

If this still is too complex, contact us and we can do the installation for you if you give us ssh login access.

And to clarify: Yes, transmission does have a web UI:

so if I do

Code: Select all

LoadModule proxy_module modules/mod_proxy.so
LoadModule proxy_http_module modules/mod_proxy_http.so

# mod_proxy setup.
ProxyRequests Off
ProxyPass /transmission http://localhost:9091
ProxyPassReverse /transmission http://localhost:9091

<Location "/transmission">
  Order allow,deny
  Allow from all
</Location>
I shoehorn the transmission daemon into the main web interface yes?
