Latest shibby firmware on WNR3500Lv2 transmission client?

    Tried out the transmission client on shibbys new firmware. It worked at first, speeds were fine in fact. But I never specified a download folder. Im not very familiar with the Linux internals of the firmware so didn't know how to specify a folder on one of my windows drives. I was running Linux before but don't haven't installed now. In any case I tried plugging a flash drive to the router and specifying usr bin folder for download, I then couldn't open the GUI client. Kept getting this error:

    'Connection Failed

    Could not connect to the server. You may need to reload the page to reconnect."

    Then when I reload page I get this:

    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.

    How can I get it working again? And when I do so how can I specify what HDD to save downloads in?

    go to usb@nas -> usb support and on bottom look a mount point of your HDD, (for example it will be /tmp/mnt/sda1). Copy this path and set as your download directory. Without correct directory path transmission will not start, because a config file is automatically saved (by default) in download path ;) If download path is wrong, then config cannot be saved then transmission can`t start. Simple ;)

    Thx shibby, so it should connect again just by specifying download path?

    Cool, thx again shibby.
    Btw, can you give me some tips or show me a guide on how to tweak the firewall section of your firmware? Security is not my specialty ;)

    One more thing shibby, im in the USB section of router trying to do what you said, where do I input the exact path of HDD? Where it says run after mounting?

    Shibby you there? Come bro, help me out, I cant find any download path except in the torrent client config itself and I put what you said everywhere, custom in binary, download path and download directory and I still get same error. Am I missing something?

    Binaries path is executable program location. Leave Internal.

    You have to set correct 'Download directory'. Go to USB Settings page and look in the bottom of page. You will see list of all USB devices connected to router. If you have enabled "automount" options then all partition od your drives should be mounted. This will look something like that:
    As you can see my flash drive is mounted on /tmp/mnt/sda1. Just put this location to "download directory".

    I went to USB settings and don't see nothing attached. Im not trying to save to USB. Im trying to save to secondary HDD that's inside computer.
