Just got my ZyXEL NSA-310 this morning and having fun setting it up.

Does anyone know which torrent client is installed on the NAS? It seems to be rejected by a few of the sites that I frequent, but obviously works just fine for public trackers and a few other private sites.

Cheers

And actually, the torrent client gets very poor speeds - even on highly seeded torrents which work fine on my laptop. Any advice?

I switched off the builtin one and replaced it with transmission 2.42 running on ffpstick/funplug

Oh, excellent. I think I'll do that.

I didn't see that version of Transmission for FFP stick. Where did you find it to install? Compiled the standard one from source?

BTW, do you find the hard-drive light is constantly on? It seems to be re-indexing or something.

@mattdiamond: I tried installing Transmission on my NSA310 following steps in: http://forum.dsmg600.info/viewtopic.php?id=2719 (as you suggested). But no luck.

I'm a newbie here, so would really appreciate a brief step-by-step guide how to handle this.

I'm running FFP 0.7/oarm (I think)

There seems to be a problem with uClibc in FFP 0.7/oarm, at the moment. Maybe you'd better use FFP 0.5 for transmission.
Recreate your FFPStick, (delete the 2nd partition, put the files from the zipfile again on the stick), and edit after_booting.sh before putting the stick into the NAS.
Edit the line FFPVERSION=auto to FFPVERSION=0.5
Make sure you use an editor which understands Linux line endings. When on Windows you can use PsPad.

Thanks Mijzelf! - It worked.

However, I'm now struggling to configure Transmission 2.42 (it's saving downloads in root's folder).
Following commands:

$ su nobody -c "transmission-daemon -f -g /mnt/HD_a2/.transmission-daemon -w /mnt/HD_a2/Downloads -t -u <username> -v <password> -a 127.0.0.1,192.168.*.*"

don't work...

Any suggestions here?
Thanks!

Yes, several.

Does nobody has rights to read/write the directories? Try
Code:
chmod a+w /mnt/HD_a2/.transmission-daemon
chmod a+w /mnt/HD_a2/Downloads
Do the directories exist?

I've found once that this construction (su nobody -c ....) doesn't work when nobody doesn't have a shell. It should, but it didn't on my box.
Have a look in /ffp/etc/passwd, and change the shell for nobody from /bin/false to /ffp/bin/sh.

All is fine now. My mistake.
When calling transmission directly, I omitted '-g' parameter, which must be included to point transmission to my new config dir.

I seems to get an error saying /mnt/HD_a2/ do not exist. Any ideas do i have to create them?

Unfortunately i can not start Transmission on my NSA310...
I followed exactly your instructions (thank you for all the support), all are seem to be fine but when i am trying to start the client i can not see anything on my web explorer link to the client...
Have you got any idea how to fix this?
I am very disappointed with the default torrent client of the NSA and i am very pissed off of the machine... :(

@Dachtus: Have you included port number (9091) in address when launching Transmission Web? Also, have you added your computer to Transmission whitelist?

Just edit on line in settings.json - it should look like this:
Code:
"rpc-whitelist-enabled": false,


It will allow you access Transmission from any machine.
