Transmission settings file edit on NAS326

Post by meathane » Tue Aug 08, 2017 9:58 am

Hi everyone,

I've looked for about 90 mins at trying to edit the settings.json file for Tranmission (I'm just trying to set the default download location to be somewhere else), and I'm struggling. I've checked in all the places I've read from other posts (/etc/zyxel/zy-pkgs/Transmission/ was one), but it wasn't there. I did however find what I imagine is the correct file, buried away in

/i-data/c533c565/.PKG/Transmission/config/Transmission/settings.json

but I don't have the file permissions to edit it. I tried vi, wouldn't let me (permission denied), and I don't have nano installed (I haven't enabled ffp, whatever that is). I've also tried connecting with a GUI Client (Cyberduck from my Mac), but it won't let me download the file either, permission denied.

Could anyone help? Cheers

Transmission version is 2.84zypkg002
Current firmware version V5.21(AAZF.1)

I met this problem yesterday. My solution is to enter as "root" user. In this case you get permission for editing
