I like Transmission app but it lacks an important feature for me, which is Magnet Links. So, I searched the web looking for an alternative and found Aria2, which can: automatically download .torrent files from URLs, process Magnet links, and directly download normal files from http or ftp!
Here is a brief tutorial on how to install aria2 and its web gui in addition to a simple file manager to manage the downloaded files.
First instal aria2:
Then, create a flexshare, for example "dm", with web access, then:
Make the required config and log files:
Make a directory inside your flexshare to store the downloaded files into
Edit /etc/aria2/aria2.conf file and paste the following into it:
Make the service handler for aria2, /etc/init.d/aria2:
Start the service and make sure aria2 is running
Download a simple web file manager (make sure you secure properly):
Now, go to your flexshare, http://dm.domain.com, and set the connection secret token (see aria2.conf above) to start using the app. The file manager will be at: dm.domain.com/downloads
