Transdroid is currently in beta. That mean bugs will be there and features may be removed (and added of course). Please test it and leave a message with your experiences.
Download Transdroid from the Android Market or directly form this site
Short link to type on your Android device: http://tr.im/tdroid
- When you use the Android Market or type the above link in the Android browser, you can immediately install the package.
- Alternatively, download it to your desktop and upload it to your Android device using the USB cable, your SD card, etc. Use a file manager on your Android device to browse to the package and open it to install.
- After starting the application for the first time, open the settings to enter your server connection details.
- You will need access to your server/machine that is running a Transmission 1.41+, µTorrent 1.7+, BitTorrent 6+ or Deluge 1.2+ daemon. This is started by enabling web access in the GUI front end or starting the appropriate background daemon).
- Remote access to your server is required. You probably have to open some ports on your router/DSL modem. Transmission daemon defaults to port 9091, µTorrent and BitTorrent to 8080, Deluge to 8112. Since your probably won’t know the IP address of your Android device, you cannot use IP filtering. To make it (more) secure, enable authentication and use a strong username/password combination.
- Test your setup by browsing to http://<your_server_addres_or_ip>:<port>/transmission/web (for Transmission) or http://<your_server_or_ip>:<port>/gui/ (for µTorrent and BitTorrent) or http://<your_server_or_ip>:<port> (for Deluge), which should show you the web interface.
- Normally, use your external IP (visit whatismyip.com if you don’t know it). Only if you are connected to your local wireless network via Wifi, you should use the internal IP address of the server (usually something like 192.168.1.xxx or 10.0.0.xxx).
If you use µTorrent or BitTorrent, see the µTorrent website for information on installing the web GUI. For Transmission users, this info is on their website. Deluge is only supported from version 1.2, which is in development, but this website shows the process of installing the web interface. If the web interface works in your mobile browser, Transdroid will work as well. If you cannot access the web interface, check again if it is running (test the web interface locally on 127.0.0.1) and if you opened the port on your router/ADSL modem.
