I can't say how many hours I've spent trying to get this to work. I'm about ready to donate this new Raspberrry Pi 3 to a local school and pick up an Intel Compute Stick running Windows for my download machine!
Does anyone have Transmission successfully downloading to a Windows share on Jessie?
- Created local mount point "/media/windowsshare" in /etc/fstab with the following lie
- //192.168.0.6/d/downloads /media/windowsshare cifs username=WINDOWS_USER_WITH_FULL_CONTROL,password=PASSWORD,uid=1000,gid=1000,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm 0 0
I can read/write files to the shared windows folder without any issues in the File Explorer. However, Transmission gives me "permission denied" when trying to down a torrent. I've followed countless guides online and changed the account Transmission runs under, changed folder permissions, file permissions, among other things. Over the past few years, there are too many suggestions to get this working that do not seem to work on Jessie. What am I doing wrong? No one has access to this machine, and there is nothing on it, so I don't mind using root if that's easiest. *I know that is not recommended)
