Re: 1.52 remove authentication

Postby kab » Thu Apr 16, 2009 4:48 pm

Some people reporting problems by disabling the password in /etc/transmission-remote/settings.json. I am not very happy by the way debian and ubuntu are installing the startupscript, but I had to make the same change in my unofficial packages to be fully compatible.

Here is the solution:

First shutdown transmission-daemon with:

Code: Select all

sudo /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon stop


This is necessary because transmission-remote writes back it's configuration during shutdown.

1. Change /etc/transmission-remote/settings.json:

Code: Select all

    ...
    "rpc-authentication-required": 1,
    "rpc-enabled": 1,
    "rpc-password": "transmission",
    "rpc-port": 9091,
    "rpc-username": "transmission",
    ...

to:

Code: Select all

    ...
    "rpc-authentication-required": 0,
    "rpc-enabled": 1,
    "rpc-password": "",
    "rpc-port": 9091,
    "rpc-username": "",
    ...


2. Delete the --auth in /etc/default/transmission-daemon:

from:

Code: Select all

...
# default options for daemon, see transmission-daemon(1) for mor options
OPTIONS="--auth --config-dir $CONFIG_DIR"
...


to:

Code: Select all

...
# default options for daemon, see transmission-daemon(1) for mor options
OPTIONS="--config-dir $CONFIG_DIR"
...


Now restart transmission-daemon with:

Code: Select all

sudo /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon start


Sorry for the inconvenience guys!
