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)
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
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 !
Overall I'm happy with the result & outcome , 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 !!
