[Support] Linuxserver.io - Transmission

I'm hoping someone can help.  I want to create a post-processing script that is run by radarr/sonarr that moves successfully imported files from directory1 to directory2.  Does anyone know how to do this?

 

Thanks

I used to use Docker to manage my watch folder, but with the recent unplesantness I made the switch to the resilio-sync docker. It works great, except Transmission doesn't see any changes until I restart the docker. Sync does add the files to the watch folder so the problem is somehow with Transmission, but I've no idea what it could be. Any ideas?

Where is the watch folder?

It’s on the cache drive:

 

/mnt/cache/appdata/transmission/torrents

Are you sure? Mine is in mnt/cache/appdata/transmission/watch

 

Take a look at the file /mnt/cache/appdata/transmission/settings.json

Ok, that’s pointing to /mnt/user/appdata/resilio-sync/sync/Transmission/

 

and I've has a few beers, so am in no position to start making changes.  Will check it in the morning. Thanks man.

I haven't actually used this feature of transmission for a while, maybe not ever with this container. I just tried it and the only way I can get it to pick up a torrent in the watch folder is to restart the container. Looking inside the container it doesn't look like it has inotify capability which I assume is what would trigger it when a new file is added.

Weird because I was using it with Dropbox and it worked flawlessly. I’ll take a look at my paths this morning and see if I can figure it out.

OK, I'm all set to give up on this and go back to drinking beer. I tried settign it back to the Dropbox folder and no luck. I tried changing the watch folder in setting.json, but it gets overwritten on startup. Grrrr.

I apologize if this has been asked before, but how do you pipe the traffic out from this docker to a VPN?  I know other people include VPN settings in the docker setup but I would rather use the Linuxserver dockers and its not clear how this works for the torrent dockers.  Thanks in advance.
