Using torrent software
« on: July 13, 2018, 07:58:22 PM »
new dune 4k pro has no internal torrent client so which software do you use?
and what steps do you proceed to make a torrent file run on the torrent software?
I tried a few things but it is a disaster when compared with old dunes.

I couldnt add a torrent file yet

as a media player, as always dune is perfect.

Dune 4K Pro has two built in OpenWRT torrent clients, Transmission and Aria2.

Connect the Dune to your network and find it's IP address (Settings - Information on Dune).

Then access IP:8080/cgi-bin/luci/ on a PC/mobile browser connected to same network.

So, if your Dune IP was 192.168.1.11, you'd type 192.168.1.11:8080/cgi-bin/luci/

You'll get a login screen like this:



No need to change user/password, just select Login (you can and should set a password after first login).

Transmission / Aria2 can be enabled and set up. As can Samba server, DLNA server, iTunes server, and much else.



To enable Transmission, go to NAS Services - BitTorrent and tick the Enabled box.

You can now access Transmission's web interface at IP:9091.

e.g, if IP is 192.1.168.11 it would be 192.168.1.11:9091

If you run kodi there are a couple of apps for streaming torrents , Quasar and Elementum , with the latter I have issues saving my files but it streams them OK, haven't used Quasar for a while.
