I run transmission 2.71-1 no problem with
Code: Select all
    "rpc-whitelist": "127.0.0.1,192.168.1.*",
    "rpc-whitelist-enabled": true,

Note you have
Code: Select all
    "rpc-whitelist": "192.168.1.*",
    "rpc-whitelist-enabled": false,

ie disabled.

You also did not state exactly what the whitelist failure is.

I figured out that > 2.52 runs from /var/lib earlier used to run from /root so i was not changing the correct settings.json , also how do i resume my torrents the torrent list is empty i tried copying resume and torrents dir didnt worked

Scrap that changed to 777 on resume directories its good now anyone see any speed improvement in 2.71 ?

:|
To be honest, I haven't seen any change in speed, I have already been maxing my bandwidth since they first implemented uTP. Since 2.52, 2.71 is the first to make mention of any more improvements of speed in uTP but I never had a speed issue before. Web CLI seems to be faster and more responsive, though.

I have somethings else too

1. How do i make it run as root ?
2. I had a script to extract the rar when torrent finishes but does not seems to be working as i feel the SRC_DIR is not visible to the script anyone else having same issue ?

Code: Select all
LOG_FILE=/var/log/unrar.log
TR_USERNAME="transmission"
TR_PASSWORD="transmission"
NOW=$(date +%Y-%m-%d\ %H:%M:%S)
SRC_DIR="${TR_TORRENT_DIR}/${TR_TORRENT_NAME}"
DEST_DIR="${TR_TORRENT_DIR}/${TR_TORRENT_NAME}/"
TR_TORRENT_PARAMETER="EXTRACT SLEEP1h"

As far as root privileges I think you might have to set TRANS_USER to "root" in /etc/conf.d/transmissiond, but I am not sure that is exactly safe (in a very paranoid sense).

I can't tell if the script needs to be run by root, but I also can't see how you declare "TR_TORRENT_DIR". Is that just an output from transmission? I've never used the the script feature from it.

Try manually running the script and see if it works (point to the dir/filename you want to extract) to see if the problem lies with transmission trying to run the script or the script itself.

All else fails, put it on a pastebin and link it here.

With systemd, edit
/usr/lib/systemd/system/transmission.service
and
/usr/lib/tmpfiles.d/transmission.conf

Thanks slycat that did the trick not sure whether i need to edit /usr/lib/systemd/system/transmission.service or not since setting TRANS_USER was good enough.Though the /usr/lib/systemd/system/transmission.service says user transmission its running as root now :D
