How to password protect Transmission 2.50 web interface?
I tried using the instructions in this thread to turn on password protection for remote access to Transmission:


But the the following line in the file /share/.Apps/Transmission/daemon.sh is missing in Transmission version 2.50:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/share/Apps/Transmission/lib /share/Apps/Transmission/bin/transmission-daemon -g /share/Apps/Transmission/.transmission -T -w /share/Downloads

What setting must I change to make it work?

RE: How to password protect Transmission 2.50 web interface?
The link you gave does not work.
Anyway, i believe it might be an old tutorial.
In the 2.50 version provided by CSI (and maintained by DathRarhek), you don't have to modify the deamon.sh.


These steps should work:
  1. Stop Transmission trough CSI.
  2. Wait a few minutes because it can take a bit to actually stop transmission (if you know how; check it in telnet using the "top" or "ps" command)
  3. Open /share/Apps/Transmission/config/settings.json (preferebly in a unix friendly text editor like Notepad++)
  4. if the settings are there, modify them.. else add these values:
    Code:
    "rpc-enabled": true,
    "rpc-authentication-required": true,
    "rpc-password": "YourPassWordHere",
    "rpc-username": "YourUsernameHere",
  5. Start Tranmsission with CSI

Oops, I accidently cut the last '9' from the link.
This thread is what I was referring to.

I tried your suggestion.
It still doesn't ask for password
Shouldn't the below setting also be set to 'true'?
Code:
"rpc-authentication-required": false,

I should have tried it before posting the question.
After modifying the settings to the below I am asked for password.
Code:
"rpc-authentication-required": true,

Thanks alot!

Seems like i forgot about that option yes,
it should indeed have been set to "true".

I modified my previous post in case other people read this thread.
