I have a LS-CHL v2 and have just installed 1.71-Halloween
My primary reason for this was to use a better torrent client . . .
but I am having some problems with Transmission.
I have cleared my browser cache, factory default reset the Linkstation.
Going in and enabling Transmission (stable 2.77) and then loading the download manager works fine.
But as soon as I add a torrent a window pops up stating "connection failed - could not connect to the server. You may need to reload the page to reconnect."
Reloading the page gives me a message "This site cannot be reached"
Only way to get things back is to initialize transmission settings and delete the transmission folder from the linkstation but then the entire cycle repeats itself.
Same if I switch to using Transmission 2.84
What do I need to do to get Transmission working here?
Is the utorrent implementation in this firmware better than that included by buffalo (i.e will it not kill my NAS)?
I tried Transmission for the first time thinking it is the better client too but ran into the same problems as you. Also tried latest and stable version.
I didn't go as far as deleting the Transmission folder because I set it to download to the bitorrent folder that uTorrent uses.
I'm back on the uTorrent that comes with Halloween.
The only issue I've had with uTorrent on stock and Halloween is that sometimes the client simply becomes unresponsive and I'd have to reinitialize settings to restart it (thereby losing the torrents I've been seeding).
