Transmission embedded in WD NAS problems

Post by Kivlov »

Hello. I have a NAS WD My Cloud EX2 Ultra. And it has Transmission torrent client embedded.

After updating the firmware to 5.07.118, a password request feature appeared when launch the Transmission. There are 2 problems with this:

1. The password does not work correctly if it contains special symbols. When I assign a new password with special symbols - everything seems to be ok, but you will not be able to log in. If I set a password without special characters - then everything is ok. In my case, the password contained symbols: !, #, $.

2. Why I cannot just disable this separate authorization for entering the Transmission cliebt at all? To be honest, I don't see much sense in it. I already authorized in my NAS before entering the Transmission client - why do I need to enter enother password again?

WD support forwarded me to the Transmission support regarding these problems.
