Issues adding RTorrent client hosted at Seedbox

Post by NightKnight »

Hello. I seem to have some issues adding the rTorrent to Mylar, when trying to I get an error saying:
"Error establishing connection to rTorrent"
rTorrent is hosted at an UltraSeedbox seedbox and I have RuTorrent set up with it. If I wanted to access the web interface, I would go to https://username.lw832.usbx.me/rutorrent/. This is the information I have entered:

rTorrent Host:port(optional): https://username.lw832.usbx.me
rTorrent RPC: /RPC2
Username: username (same as above)
rTorrent Password: password from RuTorrent
rTorrent Directory: none
label: comics

Does anyone know what changes I have to make for it to connect properly?

I believe for the RPC mount you need to add the rutorrent directory point to the RPC.

So basically:
Host: https://username.lw832.usbx.me
RPC: rutorrernt/RPC2

I know I have set it before using the httprpc plugin (which is usually installed by default) as such:
Host: https://username.lw832.usbx.me
RPC: rutorrent/plugins/httprpc/action.php

You also have to make sure you're using the right authentication method - most of the public seedboxes (I believe) should work with basic authentication. However, there are some that do use digest authentication (I know some manual installs use it).

So, also ensure that your authentication is set (ie. try basic) - and also if you're using https you'll probably want to set the Verify SSL option to True so it can authenticate properly since it's behind a certificate.

After a while, I figured it out. I don't remember how I found out, but the correct input is was "user/RPC2".
