==== Transferring Downloads from the FreedomBox ====

 1. Transmission's downloads directory can be added as a shared folder in the "Sharing" app. You can then access your downloads from this shared folder using a web browser.
 2. (Advanced) If you have the ssh access to your !FreedomBox, you can use sftp to browse the downloads directory using a suitable file manager or web browser (e.g. dolphin or Konqueror).

BitTorrent (Transmission)

1. What is Transmission ?

BitTorrent is a communications protocol using peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing. It is not anonymous; you should assume that others can see what files you are sharing. There are two BitTorrent web clients available in FreedomBox: Transmission and Deluge. They have similar features, but you may prefer one over the other.

Transmission is a lightweight BitTorrent client that is well known for its simplicity and a default configuration that "Just Works".

3. Using Transmission

After installing Transmission, it can be accessed at https://<your freedombox>/transmission. When you try to access this page, you will be required to login with a username and password. The default for both is "transmission". You can change the username and password using the configuration form in Plinth.

4. Known Issues

  • The initial password is shown in the Plinth configuration form in a hashed format. This prevents it from being read or copied. However, after the password is changed, it is shown directly, without hashing.

5. Tips
