Changing the default client

If you decide that you are no longer satisfied with your client there are a few easy steps you can take to change the default one your box uses.

  • Login to VNC or SSH
  • Type the following command
    • leafpad ~/.bashrc via VNC
    • You know how to edit files if you are logging in to SSH
  • Scroll all the way down to you see a line that starts with CLIENT=
  • Edit this line to either say
    • CLIENT=deluge
    • CLIENT=utorrent
    • CLIENT=rtorrent
    • CLIENT=transmission
  • Save the file
  • Restart your box

Note: If everything went well your new client should now start up. Remember to check the URL on your dashboard, if you signed up with uTorrent it will point to /gui but Deluge and Transmission use /.
