Since my server (Debian 6.0.3) is at version 1.2.3, but my Laptop (Ubuntu 11.10) is at version 1.3.3, using the GTK client won't work. I tired and tried, but ultimately the incompatibility defeated me...
...so instead of the GTK client, we'll use the web client. (There's also a console client)
Setup and start the deluged server
1) Run the following on the server as root:
apt-get install deluged deluge-console deluge-web # To set this for automatic startup at boot, # see http://dev.deluge-torrent.org/wiki/UserGuide/InitScript
2) Run the following on the server as a user (not root)
deluged # Run as USER to create the .config directory pkill deluged # Stop deluged #Add an entry to the /home/USERNAME/.config/deluged/auth file echo "USERNAME:my__deluge-only_password:5" >> /home/USERNAME/.config/deluged/auth # Use deluge-console to change the config setting, allowing remote access. # (For some reason, if you change .config/deluge/core.conf, the change is not persistent!) deluge-console config -s allow_remote True exit # Start deluged and deluge-web to launch the server and the web socket deluged deluge-web --fork
Connect to the server from the laptop:
Open a web browser to the server, port 8112: http: me.myserver.org:8112
Use the same password as the auth file (the "my_deluge-only_password")
And you should be in!
Try it with a small torrent (like a Debian Businesscard .iso)
