I've looked around and know that I should have more configurable options within the Plugins->Configure Plugins -> transmission ... My only available options are in the attached screenshot.
I've rebuilt freenas/re-downloaded all the pbi's and recreated the jail and run through the process of installing the plugin via the gui several times.
Which options were you expecting to see that are missing? We could see about adding them to the PBI's edit.html file.
Hm- by your response it would seem that I shouldn't be expecting to see more? I also just found
not sure if this documentation pertains to 'me' yet but i'll take a closer look in just a moment.
But the options I were expecting to see came from a wiki search i found about transmission. I've attached a screenshot and here is a link as well-
**oh what a terrible screenshot... i'm removing that =) the screenshots just the options list from the http://doc.freenas.org page

I think this is not ready yet.
I've tried several times to get transmission to work without success.
Anyone as success with this plugin with GUI ?
Transmission has had some active commits over the past few days to fix issues. Please update this thread when beta3 is out if there are still issues so they can be resolved before release.
I'll do just that.
But in the meantime-
Can someone who has installed the plugin reply here- I'd like to ask them to do me a favor for testing purposes.
I've been able to install the transmission pbi and configure the options as discussed on: http://doc.freenas.org/index.php/Plu...n#Transmission. As of now I have access to the webfront end of transmission (default to port 9091).
The configurable options should be found on: Services -> transmission -> edit.
@matlock Let me know if you have any questions
I have transmission running- but when I upload a .torrent, or use the link option- the torrent download fails saying
Error: Read-only file system
then goes on to list the directory in parenthesis that is read-only. How do I fix this?
YESSSSSS!!!! I GOT IT!
Setup a watch folder- setup the download folder! its all working =) !!!
I'll put together a write-up of my experience and how I got transmission 2.42 running on freenas 8.2 beta2
*** I could not get the plugin installation method working for me- but this seemed to be a good work around. BUT- when BETA3 comes around- i'll be giving that a shot still.
Some software you'll need, winscp
Make sure you have setup- and enabled ssh on your freenas.
First follow the directions located here to get transmission installed and configured, for the most part. I ran into some issues with these directions- and hopefully I can answer some questions based off my experience thus far.
After following the above links instruction to get transmission installed- the first issue I encountered was an unauthorized ip error.
I had quite a hard time figuring out how to get passed this and heres what I had to do.
Via putty, i had stop the transmission-daemon. In the first parts of step 2c, you had turned the daemon on- go back and turn it off.
*Note that when you first ssh into freenas- to set the mount -w / command
(nano /conf/base/etc/rc.conf find the transmission_enable="YES" and set to "NO" you'll have to commit the changes CTRL+O followed by pressing enter on your keyboard to save the changes then ctrl+x to exit nano, type in reboot- to reboot freenas )
Out of habit- i rebooted at this point.
Started freenas back up- again, via putty, ssh'd into freenas,(dont forget the mount -w / command) and went to my settings.json file.
If your unsure where this settings.json file is, you can use winscp to ssh into freenas and do a 'find' for the file. i'm not certain, but i'm guessing it'll be in the same place for you as it was for me which was /mnt/"my volume name"/torrents/settings.json
to open the settings file to edit with putty type
nano /mnt/your volume name/torrents/settings.json press enter
within the settings.json file, you find "rpc-whitelist-enabled": true, and change from true to false. dont forget to commit the changes by pressing ctrl+o followed by enter. ctrl+x will get you out of nano.
In retrospect, i believe you can set the download folder via the web interface- and so the next step may not be necessary.
but at this point to save you some more headaches while your still in the settings.json file, go up to the "download-dir": field and this was set to //download for me, change this to //mnt/your volume name/your downloads folder you have given www user and www group read/write priveleges to.
I also created a watch folder in the settings.json file. to do this i added the following to the end of the settings list
"watch-dir": "//mnt/my volume name/torrents/torrents",
after doing all of this, i rebooted, ssh'd again into freenas with putty, did
mount -w /
then went back into nano /conf/base/etc/rc.conf and for the transmission_enable="NO" changed "no" to "YES"
ctrl+O to apply changes followed by enter, then ctrl+x to exit nano, then typed reboot... to reboot... yet again.
.... when you log back into freenas, and check system processes, you should see your transmission-daemon running.
You should be able to also access the transmission webui via
drop a torrent file into your watch folder, and it should go...
This is my first writeup of any kind- let me know how i did =)
