Transmission-daemon on b3 quick and dirty how to.

Post by NisseJ » 07 Apr 2012, 05:01


As an little easter egg i found my short guide i wrote to a colleague at work about how i set up Transmission-daemon on my b3 and also the program for remote control it.

Here it is:

Install transmission-remote-gui on your desktop

On the B3 as root:

Code: Select all

change_distribution elvin -u -c

apt-get update

apt-get install transmission-daemon

transmission-daemon -f -t -u your_username -v your_password -w /path/to/downloaded/torrents 

CTRL + C to quit the program

Code: Select all

/etc/init.d/transmission-daemon stop 
nano .config/transmission-daemon/settings.json

change "rpc-whitelist": "" to "*" (or the ip you want to access it from)

save the file.

Then start transmission-daemon as an ordinary user

Code: Select all


open port 9091 TCP from internet if you want to remote control the daemon outside your own network
