Bekijk de volledige versie : The torrent-issue - once and for all

Hello et all!

I must admit, that I'm a new user to the wl-500gp-box, but the basics of WL500gp- are running. For example dropbear, ipkg, smbd, thttpd, 16->32MB, USB-HDD.
Now I want to achieve to get a torrent-client running (and additionally spin down my USB-harddisk by software - perhaps with hdparm).
So, I think I read almost every post about torrent in this forum, but I find it very difficult to find the right and working information. I tried it with torrent_admin and torrent_watchdog and I drilled some hole in my firewall like I read it here. But at the end of the day I canít download torrentfiles yet :-(
So, perhaps could someone, who has a working torrent-downloading-box write here the modifications, which were necessary to bring it to work. Iím especially interested in the enhanced ctorrent-package (which additional packages do I need, configuration, iptables, etc..). But every other working solution is welcome.
Until now I documented every of my steps while setting my box up, so I would agree to write something like a howto or a tutorial which summarize all steps, especially for the torrent issue.
So, what do you think? Please help me, and I will give my best to make those information easily accessible in detail in this forum. Thx!

I am using package torrent for more than one year. There is also some totorial on http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/Unslung/Torrent describing it.

Hi Oleo!

Thx, I read this side already. But unfortunately my torrent don't starts (but on PC). I'm not sure were to search the fault. Do I need iptables rules? Which ones? And the cgi-script does not work really proper, but that cannot be the problem, right.
Other question: I've read that on OpenWRT fw one can run enhanced ctorrent. But I don't want to abandon the features of oleg's fw. There was something about c++ library problems... Can you provide me with some information about installing etorrent?
Thanks for your help.

Ciao Marc.

I can only say that both btget and ctorrent works OK. There are no problems with c++ libraries any more.

You are right. I started again from zero and now it works fine... perhaps I did sth wrong on my 1st try.. thanks for your attention!
