Vpn with transmission
Raspberry pi home server episode 13: install transmission
For transmission, I used the bind ipv4 address option. Transmission accepts the value if I set it to the IP of my tun1 interface, and it can initiate/download transfers and bind to peers. However, looking at the performance of the ‘top’ command, the openvpn process appears to be using almost no CPU. (This isn’t the case if I’m really using the VPN, for example).
You typically get a private IPv4-address when you connect to a VPN-server, so you need to own the VPN-server to build firewall rules forwarding BitTorrent-traffic to your client, or you won’t be able to maintain the upload/download ratio.
When the IP address of the tun0/tun1 interface changes, the script automatically updates it. It also confirms my suspicion that the ‘bind ipv4 address’ option only forces transmission to listen for peer connections via that interface, rather than routing actual traffic.
Since routing table vpn is different from routing table main, it should only affect apps that connect VPN-addresses, such as Transmission configured with transmission-helper.sh.
How to install qbittorrent with a vpn on omv/docker
I previously wrote about using your Synology NAS to download torrents over a VPN link using Synology Download Station and OpenVPN; this post demonstrates how to use your preferred torrent client with OpenVPN within a Docker container. The advantage of doing it this way is that it isolates the torrent client within a container that uses the VPN, while the remaining Synology services link to the internet directly without using the VPN.
Specify the user and community identifiers in Advanced Settings > Environment (this permits the container to use the same credentials as the user, to avoid any permissions issues which can arise when specifying a user created share outside the docker folder as the download location)
You should now be able to add torrents, which will download over the VPN and be transferred to the downloads folder you mentioned when done. There are a couple of Firefox and Chrome plug-ins that allow you to control magnet links and check download status without having to open the management UI from the browser toolbar.
How to install transmission with vpn on omv
The invention discloses a method for transmitting VPN communication in a clear manner by copying and forwarding an IP packet. An interior computer of a local area network (LAN) sets a public network IP address, and a corresponding transfer server exists on the internet and actually has the public network IP address; the interior computer sends the IP packet of the VPN communication, and a LAN router copies the IP packet to the transfer server and sends the IP packet to a VPN server via t The method is primarily used to solve the internet protocol security (IPSEC) tunnel mode VPN communication issue between LAN computers and the internet.
Easy automated home media server: vpn, radarr, sonarr
One idea I had was to require transmission to use a specific port, say 33442, and then allow only traffic from the VPN server’s IP address to and from that port. I looked at the Ubuntu server guide and believe I might accomplish something similar to this:
This script has been thoroughly checked on vpn connects, disconnects, and reboots. It’s awesome. Only the VPN can be used for transmission. The major benefit of this script over others is that I have ensured that your data matches what is pulled over transmission (by inserting INPUT (all) and Forward (all) rules for each interface eth0, vpn (tun0), as you can see (via iptables -L -v). And you’re sure of what’s going on!!! The data totals will not precisely match transmission because I am unable to differentiate on the INPUT side down to the debian-transmission consumer, and there will be some extra overhead and possibly other processes using the same VPN, but you will notice that the data approximately matches on the INPUT side and is about half on the OUTPUT for the vpn, indicating that it is working.
