Torrent-Fu on Android with Amahi Transmission .. ?!

Postby sgtfoo » Fri Jan 21, 2011 8:27 pm

What's the best way to get Torrent-Fu on Android to work outside the LAN with Amahi Transmission?

- I tried editing the transmission settings.json, but it just reverts to stock settings
- I have my 9091 port forwarded so I can get into the app, but TorrentFu has an error when connecting to host as follows::

Code: Select all

Valie <h1>403 of type java.lang.String cannot be converted to JSONObject
I just wanna control Torrents in Transmission from my Android phone. Is it so hard?

I don't have an android phone, or know much about this app, but to correct the problem with transmission overwriting the settings, make sure you stop the transmission daemon first. After you make and save your changes, restart the service. That worked for me when I was fixing the default permissions.

What are you putting for your host?

Well the app asks for..

host: myhda.yourhda.com

port: 9091

username: my choice (to match the settings file)

password: my choice (to match the settings file)


After trying to shut-down the daemon, the settings still don't stick when I finish editing in nano and restart the service.

How are you attempting to shut down the daemon? You might need to remove it from monitoring by the watchdog using the web interface, then manually using the service amahi-transmission stop command.
