Transmission v2.94 for WD My Cloud firmware V4

For those who’s following WD My Cloud‘s post, a new APP has been added to the installer, Transmission v2.94 for firmware V4. Transmission has the features you want from a BitTorrent client: encryption, a web interface, peer exchange, magnet links, DHT, uTP, UPnP and NAT-PMP port forwarding, webseed support, watch directories, tracker editing, global and per-torrent speed limits, and more.

Note that if you’re unsure about Linux file permissions and such, please download all torrents into /root/Downloads which has been symlinked to /shares/Public/Transmission/Downloads for easy access from Windows/Mac. If you change the download location, you’ll have to manually apply the appropriate ownership and permissions.

WDMyCloud is not powerful enough to do heavy torrenting. To prevent WDMyCloud hanging, limit your connections i.e. 50 and downloads to only one at a time while queueing the rest.

And most IMPORTANTLY ensure you DO NOT download torrents into the 2GB rootfs partition ‘/’ or you will have system issues when the rootfs gets full.

As promised, my donors will get the priority to install my newer builds. I will post a new comment when it’s released to the public to be used with the anonymous credentials. Donors with donation credentials, please use this installer code on your WDMyCloud:

  1. Thank you so much!
    I have to mention you have to change setting “rpc-whitelist” to “*”. Otherwise FireFox shows the connection error.

    1. If you’re installing for the first time from the installer, it will do this rpc-whitelist settings for you.

  4. Hi, after a software update the transmission gone from my Wd.

    I tried to use the donated keys, i got from you, but couldn’t install.

    Could you help out with it?


  5. Sorry, i did forgot about that case…

    That was a bad experience for me with an IT, who stole my accounts and messed up everything around me…

    Donated again, hope it helps to forget…

    1. No problem, please reuse the same donation keys. It’s already automatically updated for your current public IP 81.0.43.xx.
