TL-MR3420 Ver1.2 [ Samba, FTP, Transmission ]

 

 


Samba & FTP

To install Samba & FTP (vsftpd), follow same steps as per my setup for TL-WR1043ND HERE (towards middle end section)

 

 


Transmission

 

This Transmission thing is always big challenge to me, let's see how it goes this round .....

 

Go to " System --> Software tab", click Update lists to refresh packages

 

Type Transmisison to Find package under Available tab
Install the transmission-web package 

 

After installed, launch PuTTY, run it, wait for at least 10sec

then kill the service

Create some folders as follows

 

Launch WinSCP, go to " /root/.config/transmission-daemon " folder
Locate & edit the file settings.json

 

Change the following accordingly, click save button when done

 

Next go to " /etc/init.d " folder
Locate & edit the file transmission

Change as follows, click save button when done

 

Back to PuTTY, enable auto-start service as follows

Reboot the device

 

Note:

Somehow with the above setup, the Transmission doesn't seem to start and work properly after reboot.
At this moment, temporary solution after reboot, just go to " System --> Startup ", click Restart again, then it will start and work properly again.

 

Alright, testing time ....
I use Transmission Remote Gui from my Pc to connect the device, tested with 4 torrents concurrently, set limit both down/up load speed to 450KB/s on my UniFi VIP5 package.
Full speed ahead no problem, CPU around 50% only, can pause then resume even after re-boot, tested few hours already no issue at all Cool !

 

 

Overall I'm happy with the result & outcome Laughing, finally overcome my previous "no space left" issue.
What a great value for a device below RM90, able to be unleashed with OpenWRT power, definitely 1 of my toy to play with Tongue out !!
