I recently rebuilt my Transmission service as part of a move from FreeNAS. Since then, downloading via watchdir and remote cli both fail.
I'm running Transmission daemon 2.94 on Ubuntu 16.04. I installed from the PPA. I'm using Transmission Remote GUI on a mac installed from homebrew along with this. The daemon is running as the debian-transmission user.
My watchdir (/var/tmp/torrentwatch) is owned by debian-transmission:debian-transmission and when I copy files into that location as that user, they appear in the Transmission Remote GUI list of torrents. The destination directory is also owned by debian-transmission:debian-transmission.
There are no errors, and a number of peers are listed, but it stays in Downloading status and never downloads any content. I have the same result if instead of using the watchdir, I upload with
Code: Select all
transmission-remote 127.0.0.1:9001 -a /path/to/torrent
Any idea how I can get the watchdir and remote working again as I use this along with flexget. What logs would be helpful to post here for further debugging ?
