Basic system, installed these packages: transmission-daemon és
Here is rc.conf:
transmission_flags=" -a 192.168.0.1 "
Other settings are the defaults. Then I do this:
vm01# mkdir -p /download
vm01# chown -R transmission:transmission /download
vm01# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/transmission start
vm01# ps axww | grep transm
8963 ?? SsJ 0:00.00 /usr/local/bin/transmission-daemon -g
/usr/local/etc/transmission/home -a 192.168.0.1 -w /download
My problem: cannot use web UI from outside. Here is the error I get:
> 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.
However, it is useless to change "rpc-whitelist-enable" to "false" in
the ~transmission/settings.json file. I can even delete it. It doesn't
matter. Anytime I start transmission-daemon, it ignores all the
settings. Then, if I stop it, it dumps out the default settings again to
When starting up transmission-daemon, it doesn't tell anything about not
found config file, cannot read or parse it etc.
What did I wrong?
