Okay I downloaded the 1.1.0 .msi installer for Windows and put it on my brother's WinXP box and had NO TROUBLES connecting to my Ubuntu Desktop's daemon (running 1.1.1). I will note that 1.1.0 on Windows informed me that 1.1.1 was available, but the Windows version doesn't seem to know that only the Linux 1.1.1 is available. Adding the username:password to the ~/.config/deluge/auth file was as simple as it gets (unless your mouseochistic and like to click thru bunches of dialogs). I am also starting to understand how you guys intend the Lables to work. I like the idea of automatically adding torrents from particular trackers to certain labels... great for genre / content specific trackers. And being able to set up/down rates and move-when-completed directories by label is awesome. I still had notions of using the Label system to do my user management having 3 people attaching to the same daemon. For now, since we co-locate all our media on the same server, music, movies, ebooks, software, et all can be funneled to the right place for central access. I am going to see how it deals with CIFS/SMB (Windows share) mountpoints on the Linux box to put "personal" torrents back onto each of our desktops over a network connection.
Thanks again and I will try to give you all more feedback after toying with it for a while. As of the moment, I am super excited to move my roommates to using the Windows client against my Linux daemon. You ROCK!!!
really cool idea, please keep us informed with these kind of stuff.
I am doing the same thing on my server-like machine in the kitchen. (no screen or keyboard)
I use the webui with me room-mate in cooperation, maybe there will be a login-wise solution to seperate the torrents and directories listed in the webui and visible in samba-shares. But for now some nice labels would do the thing too.
