Installing transmission on the Tonido2plug
[neil@tonido]$ sudo pacman -Sy transmission-cli
Start the service
[neil@tonido]$ sudo systemctl start transmission.service
Configure the basics
You have to stop the service else it may not pick up the changed config.
[neil@tonido]$ sudo systemctl stop transmission.service [neil@tonido]$ sudo vi /var/lib/transmission/.config/transmission-daemon/settings.json
- Turn on rpc-whitelist for 168.192..
- Set rpc user and password to whatever you are going to use when connecting to the webserver.
Configure the rest
You can do most of the config from the web service after this. Point a browser at http://tonido:9091/transmission and use the web config tool.
Set message-level to 1 after a while to cut down on Info logging.
Allow the daemon to be stopped from desktop
Allow all users in admin group to issue specific commands without any passwords:
I set up a sudoers file to allow admin group to issue some restricted commands without any passwords:
[root@tonido]# more /etc/sudoers.d/admin Cmnd_Alias PACMAN = /usr/bin/pacman -Sy Cmnd_Alias TRANSM = /usr/bin/systemctl stop transmissiond.service,/usr/bin/systemctl start transmission.service %admin ALL=(ALL)NOPASSWD:PACMAN,TRANSM
Now the service can be stopped/started from afar:
[neil@desktop]$ ssh tonido "sudo /usr/bin/systemctl stop transmission.service"
Automate service startup overnight
Setup transmission start/stop as root:
Add start/stop commands: (to run it overnight).
