Plain, simple instructions for web + Mac

Post by klensein » Thu Jul 09, 2020 4:41 pm

Would some kind soul please post some plain simple jargon-free instructions on installing and using the web client with Mac OSX (Snow Leopard)? And would some other kind administrative soul perhaps consider making that answer a sticky?

I have 2 machines, 1 running 10.6, the other 10.4.11, with the latest possible version of Transmission on each. Web client is, supposedly, activated on both. The newer machine can access its own Transmission via the web, but I don't see that as a particularly useful feature. But if it tries to access the older machine, Safari fails to open the page "because the server isn't responding" (and no, it isn't asleep or anything). If I attempt to access the newer machine from my iPod, I get "409: Conflict Your request has an invalid session-id header ... (gobbledegook) ... add the updated header to your requests ... (more gobbledegook) ... prevent CSRF ... etc." What requests? All I did was type an address in the address bar. Attempting to access the older machine from the iPod gives the usual "server stopped responding". It's a total mess.

The program works so well, is so neat and cool, it's really frustrating that the web interface, which would be really useful, is unusable because apparently completely undocumented.
