Description

I have bought and installed the Amahi package for Transmission just as I did with Subsonic. However, after just adding the website as described here

http://wiki.amahi.org/index.php/Hosting_a_website

it worked for me to access Subsonic from the outside but for Transmission I get the following error:

_403: Forbidden

Unauthorized IP Address.

Either disable the IP address whitelist or add your address to it.

If you're editing settings.json, see the 'rpc-whitelist' and 'rpc-whitelist-enabled' entries.

If you're still using ACLs, use a whitelist instead. See the transmission-daemon manpage for details._

I think this has either to do with the conflicting installs or that the GUI that I can access from my home network does not influence the settings.json file. I have tampered around with that via the terminal in the past and made it work on a F12 installation but why would I pay then for a package like that?

Can you check the app install log in /var/log directory for errors? Also any other details you can provide would help. Is this Fedora or Ubuntu?

Some of the info you have provided indicates something needs modified outside of the Transmission install. Have you checked out the wiki?

#2 Updated by achmetinternet about 9 years ago

When I try to do step 1 in order to stop the transmission service as described in the wiki, I am told:

service: command not found

It installed correctly because I can access it from a client in my network...and it uses "transmission" as User and PW.

I am using Ubuntu 12.04.

#3 Updated by bigfoot65 about 9 years ago

The CLI is service transmission-daemon stop. The wiki requires updating for Ubuntu, so please understand current guidance may not work.

#4 Updated by cpg about 9 years ago

the service program is at

/usr/sbin/service

it may be that it has to be run as root, which probably has /usr/sbin in the default path.

It seems it worked to modify the settings.json and set the value for "rpc-whitelist-enabled" to false. I could also change my User and PW. Now it is accessible from the outside remotely.

I installed the one-click app on Fedora 19 and have the same issue with the 403 error when trying to log in remotely, even from within the home network. Only the link provided in the dashboard works. I checked the settings.json and set the whitelist parameter to false like before. I also checked if the service was restarted & active. So all should be okay but I still get the 403 error. Could it be that your one-click app installs paralelly to some other Transmission parts already coming with F19?

Is this still an issue with Amahi 7? If not, please close the bug.
