Deluge Thin Client with Mac Server (username password)

Postby ablizno » Sun Jan 27, 2013 8:16 am

I plan to run deluge on my xserve and have the thin client on my macbook pro. I have followed the instructions here: http://dev.deluge-torrent.org/wiki/UserGuide/ThinClient

I can figure out how to get the client end (macbook pro) end working as those instructions are easy to follow. However, I cannot seem to figure out how to set the username and password on the server side as the instructions are wrote for linux. I have figured out how to get the remote connections to work, and how to access it via the webUI but i cant seem to figure out how to get the thin client working with the server end also on OSX.

Just add the user and pass to the auth file in config, in the same format as the example.

ok so i figured it out, all you have to do is open a terminal window and follow the linux instructions to a T

open terminal

echo "username:password:level" >> ~/.config/deluge/auth


Return to “Mac OS”
