Download Client Connection Details

Torrent Clients

  • In Search Settings to add a Torrent download client click on the Torrent Search tab.


Connection Settings

Search .torrent files: ENABLED
Send .torrent files to: rtorrent
rTorrent host:port: https://{username}.{servername}
Http Authentication: Basic
rTorrent Username: {username}
rTorrent Password: As configured in UCP under ruTorrent
Add Label To Torrent: Medusa
Downloaded Files Location: <EMPTY>

Post-Processing Setup

  • Access and login to your ruTorrent instance using the credentials you set during installation
  • Go to Settings by clicking the Gear Icon

  • Click on the Autotools section in left column

  • Enable the checkbox that says: Enable "Automove" if torrent's label matches fitler" and change default entry /.*/ to /Medusa/

  • Click the directory button next to Path to finished downloads

  • Upon clicking the directory button, it will auto-fill the default download path your ruTorrent is using. This default location is: /{HOME##}/{USERNAME}/files
    • Simply add: /completed to the end of the path, making the path: /{HOME##}/{USERNAME}/files/completed
    • {HOME##} is your home number, in this example it is `home8'
      • {USERNAME} is your slot username, in this example it is docs

This step is very important if using ruTorrent as your download client. ruTorrent will not append an extension to downloads therefore Medusa's Post-Processor will import incomplete downloads if the Auotools-AutoMove plugin is not used in ruTorrent.


Connection Settings

Search .torrent files: ENABLED
Send .torrent files to: Transmission 
Transmission host:port: https://{username}.{servername}
Transmission RPC URL: transmission/rpc
Transmission Username: {username}
Transmission Password: As configured in UCP under Transmission
Downloaded Files Location: EMPTY

Post Processing Setup

Transmission appends ".part" to the downloading file extensions until the download is completed and Medusa will ignore these files with ".part" extensions, so there is no need to configure any further Post Processing directory settings for this client

  • Go to Settings In the top right corner of the menu at the top of the initial login page.

  • From here click on the PATHS link in the menu on left column menu

  • Here you will see MainDir location default as /downloads

  • MainDir needs to the full path of the files directory in your home.
    • /{HOME##}/{USERNAME}/files/
      • To get the full directory of this folder, you can SSH into your slot and run the command: readlink -f ~/files/
      • The output of this command will give you the full path to your home's files directory
        • If you are unsure on how to SSH into your slot, you may refer to this guide:

Per the example in the screenshot below, {HOME##} is home8 and the {username} is docs, so the full path for the files directory would be: /home8/docs/files
