PostPosted: Thu Nov 01, 2012 4:32 am    Post subject: A few issues Reply with quote

First and foremost a problem I am having is with the torrent client. The inability to change settings while running torrents with torrentflux is frustrating, along with not being able to set global bandwidth limits. I hear rtorrent is better, but am unsure how to install it, and transfer over existing seeds.

Also, according to the tracker and inability of users to connect to the box, somehow the ports used are being blocked by the server. They are all properly forwarded with the router, and the firewall has not been activated yet on the server as far as I know.

Last, I find the tightvncserver service automatically stops itself when started through the GUI (the only place I can figure out howto use it seeing as it isn't in webmin).

I apologize, I am a definite beginner to using Linux in a serious fashion.

Although torrentflux is old, I never had problems with download speed or managing individual torrent speed limits.
You can't change global or per torrent limits or you haven't found how it is done?

If you want a more modern torrent client you can switch to rtorrent or transmission.

1. rtorrent
For rtorrent you can take a look at
http://sms.it-ccs.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=307&highlight=rtorrent
for some general info.
To install it, either download SMS.Native.CD-2.0.0-Extra.iso and install manual, or use slapt-get
Code:
slapt-get --add-keys
slapt-get -u
slapt-get -i libsigc++ libtorrent lighttpd rtorrent xmlrpc-c

and start with
/etc/rc.d/rc.rtorrent start
and navigate to http://[youserver]:81

2. transmission
To install transmission install package from /extra/packages or use slapt-get
Code:
slapt-get --add-keys
slapt-get -u
slapt-get -i transmission

To start it use
/etc/rc.d/rc.transmission start
and navigate to http://[yourserver]:9091
default login is admin:admin
but you can change that in /etc/transmission/transmission.conf.

3. Migrate torrents
To migrate you torrents just add your torrents through clients and choose the same download locations as it was before.
That way when you start to download, it will hash torrent and start to seed.

Port forward if it's working properly you shouldn't have any problems, also don't forget to set same ports you open in your router in torrent clients too.
You can use a port scanner (there are lot in the internet) to verify that ports are forward correctly.

As for tightvnc, you can either use sms_config GUI and services or edit manually by editing '/etc/rc.d/rc.vncservers.conf' and simple add your user and diplay e.g. VNCSERVERS="49:root"
and simple start tightvnc with
/etc/rc.d/rc.vncservers start

I mean't that I can't easily change the global limits from the GUI, and inability to swiftly manage torrent settings/individual file priorities, and other features I have come to expect out of a torrent client today. I will try the others

As for the forwarded ports, I found I have solved this problem by specifying a specific port per the torrent. Seems to have succeeded.

Sorry, this seems stupid, but how do I edit the config files, via SSH or webmin. Also, when I do /etc/rc.d/rc.vncservers start I get Permission Denied, and when I navigate to the folder and try to just run rc.vncservers start I get command not found...

For global limits need to go to settings->admin
as per torrent is quite easy, just select torrent and alter it's limits.
Wtorrent doesn't have per torrent limit though unless you use rtorrent from console.

If you have install KDE open with kwrite or kate if you SSH use "nano" or "vi".
e.g. nano /etc/rc.d/rc.vncservers.conf
to save & exit (Ctrl+X)

Make the script executable (by default is not) with
Code:
chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.vncservers


and add in /etc/rc.d/rc.local to start at boot
Code:
if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.vncservers ]; then
 /etc/rc.d/rc.vncservers start
fi


You can also edit files through a java applet from Webmin->Others->File Manager

Did you specify a port range in your router?
You can specify port range in clients too.
For rtorrent you need to edit /home/administrator/.rtorrent.rc

Problem with VNC server.
starting vnc server: 1:root failure
starting vnc server: 49:root failure

rtorrent looks pretty alright, I'll check it out. No interface to create new torrents though it doesnt seem like but I guess I can use torrentflux for that still :S. I'll check out transmisson at some point. Did I install a local rtorrent GUI with those sapt-get's? I don't really have a use for it until I get VNC to work due to a lack of mouse on the server though.

Also, how would I go about making the torrentflux downloads folder writing in Samba as the Samba@SMS folder is?

By the way, I appreciate the support as much as I do the OS. Thank you!

You need to SSH and type "vcnpasswd" to create a password.
You have to do that for other users as well if you create any...
Then you can start VNC.
Of course you need to have installed x-kde-addon package or else it wouldn't work.

The only frontend for rtorrent is the Wtorrent, no gtk or qt GUI.
There are few out there never use any of them though, I'll check them and let you know.

All settings for torrentflux is at Admin->Settings.
The first option (PATH)

Good news, getting closer to VNC working. The server is up and running now, but the VNC connection at the hostname still returns that the connection is actively refused, along with the IP address returning a timeout.

Did you specify the port on your VNC viewer?
for :59
[your ip address]:5949
for 1
[your ip address]:5901

Also you don't need too displays for the same user, unless you are two users who want to connect at the same time on different display.

Thank you very much that worked!

I tried using rtorrent, though with some fuss. I found a great looking GUI for it rutorrent, but it complained about an out of date RCP library even though slackware claims its up to date. It simply wouldn't download anything as well even from wtorrent. I shall try transmission later.

I am trying to use fuppes, I slapt-got it, and added the directory to the list without changing much else. When trying to start it, nothing is returned. Perhaps the file on the extras cd includes a config file already set up for use? Attempting [sms]:7020 fails.

fuppes doesn't have a config, I attach a sample fuppes.cfg to place it in /etc/fuppes.
Also always look at /var/log/fuppes.log after starting fuppes for errors.
always add your server IP and port under <network> like
<interface>yourIP</interface>
<http_port>7020</http_port>

You may also want to try mediatomb as it is more friendly and with more options.

I'll check for rutorrent..

I create a package for rutorrent with all current plugins, and uplod later today.
You can access rutorrent at http://[yourserver]/rutorrent
I also upgrade xmlrpc-c and rebuilt rtorrent.

How can I get this package and updated xmlrpc-c?

And how do you suggest migrating seeds over to rtorrent from tflux?

Just use slapt-get:
Code:
slapt-get -u
slapt-get -i xmlrpc-c rtorrent rutorrent


SMS-Current Changelog is at
http://sms.it-ccs.com/isos/SMS-Current/ChangeLog.txt

SMS-Current tree at
http://sms.it-ccs.com/isos/index.php?dir=SMS-Current%2F

To migrate torrents re-add the torrents to rtorrent (rutorrent) and select directory where torrents already exists, or move old torrents to new download directory.
That way if you choose to download them from rtorrent, it will check hash first and start to seed.

Great! That should have been kind of obvious, heh.

So far there are a few issues. Including the RPC plugin uses it instead of xmlrpc-c and is said to be redundant and slow. With the update there is no longer an RPC issue (as there was before).

Also two plugins have dependencies not found in the repository:
[12.11.2012 09:01:02] mediainfo: Plugin will not work. rTorrent user can't access external program (mediainfo).
[12.11.2012 09:01:02] screenshots: Plugin will not work. rTorrent user can't access external program (ffmpeg).

ffmpeg is available in /extra/DLNA/common, you can slapt-get it but might need other files from common.
To try it use
Code:
slapt-get -i ffmpeg ffmpegthumbnailer libva


If you have problems try installing all the packages in /extra/DLNA/common, they are not big, whole directory is 14MB with ffmpeg only been 8.2MB.

As for mediainfo isn't available in SMS, I can provide you packages of mediainfo and libmediainfo if you want for SMS.
