I think the Transmission configs and trackers loaded will be erased during the upgrade. One will probably have to copy some of the Transmission files in the .config directory to another place and copy them back after installing the client.

Thanks! That was very helpful. Now, I can back up everything easily.

I'm not sure if I'll be needing the share directory for public access and if I should put the .config directory there, so I decided to put it in a torrents directory, which also contains my downloads, incomplete, trackers (watch directory), and trashbox.

I am currently experiencing a past problem which I can't resolve. Here's the situation.

I'm using a D-Link DIR-655 router with uPnP turned off and IP address 192.168.0.1 connected to a cable modem.

I have the ff. connected to the router.

- desktop PC with static IP 192.168.0.100 and uTorrent using port 33981

- NAS with static IP 192.168.0.101 with Transmission using port 33982

Each port is forwarded in the router.

I get a sample torrent with hundreds of seeds and peers.

In the PC, the torrent download speed is normal: around 300 KB/s.

For the NAS, the torrent speed is slow, between 0 and 5 KB/s.

I ran NMap in the PC to check the NAS at 192.168.0.101, and port 33982 is reported as opened.

Finally, I tried Transmission for Windows in the PC (same port and torrent), and the torrent speed was fast.

Just wanted to say thanks for the guide (and oxygen8, of course!). I'm a complete Linux and networking noob, and got Transmission installed on my LS-XL in no time! These steps worked perfectly for me.

transmission takes a lot of memory 44/50mb
after a day of use with 20-40 active torrents becomes unmanageable.
There is a script that daily kill the process and restart it to wipe the memory?
Or is there an old version that takes up less resources?

Thanks!

I found out elsewhere that torrent downloading may require a lot of memory. I realized this after testing a unit (which has 64 MB RAM) and a used netbook (with 1 GB RAM) to download four files using the same router and modem. The speed for the former was 50 kb/s and the latter 200 kb/s or more.

Given that, I am thinking of using the NAS for sharing files locally and the netbook for P2P until it breaks down, after which I will get a Raspberry Pi model that has the most memory.

Thanks! I didn't change the disk cache and it was set to 4 MB. I will experiment further, though, and see what happens.

I subscribed to a new ISP with lots of bandwidth and got a new router, but the problem remains, even with a 4 MB disk cache size. I'm guessing that it's better to have more than enough RAM.

Edit: I found out what happened. Sometimes, when I delete one or more large torrents the process causes speeds to become lower. They go back to normal only after I reboot the device.

How can I check if Transmission is running? I've been successfully using it for about the past year, but as of today I am unable to connect to Transmission on my LS-XL. The NAS is working fine otherwise.

EDIT: Ok, I just tried accessing Transmission again via Transmission Remote GUI and the Web UI and get the following:

403: Forbidden

Unauthorized IP Address.

Either disable the IP address whitelist or add your address to it.

If you're editing settings.json, see the 'rpc-whitelist' and 'rpc-whitelist-enabled' entries.

If you're still using ACLs, use a whitelist instead. See the transmission-daemon manpage for details.


I'm not having success editing the .json file through putty. Is there a way I can access and edit the file with Windows Explorer?

I had to put in a new HD and re-install Transmission.

I am experiencing the same problem: a 403 error when I try to access the Transmission web GUI.

I found out that there is a settings.json in

/mnt/disk1/share/.config/transmission-daemon/settings.json

and also in

/root/.config/transmission-daemon/settings.json

I looked at the contents of the first one using the command

screen mcedit /mnt/disk1/share/.config/transmission-daemon/settings.json

and the RPC settings are correct: *.*.*.* and "true," respectively, but I still got the 403 error.

When I edited the second settings.json, I saw that the first RPC setting was set to "0.0.0.0," so I corrected it, and the 403 error disappeared.

The problem is that after a day or two file transfers stopped working. When I logged into the unit using web access, the information section of the page showed zero disk space used. When I rebooted the unit, I could no longer access the drive, so I had to reinstall the firmware.

Also, I am currently using the built-in torrent client.

For some reason, the scheduler does not follow the system time.

I went to the NAS web configuration, checked the system data and time (NTP and time zone as well), and they are correct. I used Putty and the "date" command also shows the correct time.

But when I use the torrent scheduler, it is off by seven hours, so I adjusted the schedule accordingly.

I found out by clicking on each of the hourly boxes before the current one of the day to set it to white (turn off file transfers) and see where file transfers were turned off.
