Unable to connect thin-client from remote host

Postby jbygden » Sat Mar 25, 2017 9:08 pm

I have a Mac mini as server, where I run my deluged, I have run it successfully for a couple of years now only using the web-gui from my laptop to control it.

I have macOS 10.12.3 and deluge 1.3.14 on both hosts.

Today I realized I could use the GTK-ui remote and tried to get it to work, but all I get is this in the deluged.log on the server:

Code: Select all

[ERROR   ] 21:59:35 rpcserver:268 Password does not match
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/Users/cas/gtk/inst/lib/python2.7/site-packages/deluge-1.3.14-py2.7.egg/deluge/core/rpcserver.py", line 262, in dispatch
  File "/Users/cas/gtk/inst/lib/python2.7/site-packages/deluge-1.3.14-py2.7.egg/deluge/core/authmanager.py", line 95, in authorize
BadLoginError: Password does not match


What have I missed/done wrong?

Have you added a user name and password to the auth file on the mac mini?

And are you using that username and password on the laptop client?

It is a different password then the web ui.

Yes, I've tried a couple of different combinations. From re-using the hash from the 'localclient' as the password for my own user to entering the password in clear text in the auth file used by the deluged on the server.

All tries renders the "Password does not match" error in the log

In the auth file you need:

name:password:10

The password is a clear text password. The 10 is a permissions thing and needs to be there as well.

OK, after removing ~/.config/deluge/hostlist.conf.1.2 and having deluge gtk-client re-create it, it now works. Strange.
