transmission-daemon systemd config overrides authentication
Last modified: 2013-02-01 12:03:14 EST
Description of problem:
The systemd configuration file is calling transmission-daemon with options that prevent authentication from working for the RPC interface.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install transmission-daemon
2. Start it once to auto-generate the configuration files.
3. Stop transmission-daemon
4. Enable the rpc authentication options
5. Start transmission-daemon
The config file is overridden and the authentication to the rpc interface is disabled - accessing it from a browser allows access with no prompt for credentials.
To be prompted for credentials to access the web based RPC interface.
Removing the '-T' argument from the exec line in the systemd configuration file allows the settings.json to take effect and the expected behaviour to happen.
