Torrents, iPad & WHS

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Think this is kind of home server related!

 

Currently I have a great set-up when using my iPad at home. I can use safari to navigate to a torent file link, when I click this I am given to option to open in the iPad app FileBrowser. FileBrowser is a file naviagtion app that also maps to the shares on my WHS boxes. I save the torrent file to a share/folder on the server that is monitored by utorrent running on my server which then automattically starts the download. I also have utorrent app installed on my ipad which allows me to monitor the download progress on the server.

 

Now it seems for various reasons torrent sites are using magnet links rather than hosting torrent files. When I click one of these links in Safari it doesn't know what to do. I apprecite that I could Remote Desktop to my server from my ipad and use a web browser there to get the links and then utorrent would action them but really want something on my iPad that would give me a similar approach to what I do now to browse and download.

 

Anyone got any ideas of iPad apps (incl jailbroken ones) or a way of doing this??

 

Many thanks,

Andy.

I've used an app called iExplorer to download files through a link on my iphone. I think it would work with a torrent link.

      Hi, hoping for a bit of guidance on what todo with my N40L box.  I have it sat in the living room connected to the TV.  Its running Windows 10 with Kodi, sabnzb, torrents, and a bunch of discs with all my files and media.  I would like to have a solid setup that can be used to access my data,, share game ISOs, download NZBs, do backups, etc.
       
      I'm going with WHS 2011, is this the best option considering the other HS OS's available such XPEnology, FreeNas, etc? 
       
      Specs:
       
      N40L:
      8GB ATI GPU BIOS Hack 128GB SSD (OS sitting in DVD Bay) 1.5TB HD 200gb HD 200 gb HD2 I have a 750GB SSD - not sure what to use this for?  
      Thanks for your help!

      Hi folks,
       
      I have had my install of WHS2011 for some time and with a static IP have been able to use remote access by switching on that service albeit not using microsoft's domain name registration.
       
      The system has worked for about 5 years but is now grumbling about certificates when I login either remote or using one of my PCs on the local home network using mstsc.   The error message is attached.    Clearly if I click yes and ignore the error I can continue as I can when accessing the server using the static IP.  
       
      I have looked at various posts about certificates and buying certificates for domain names etc. most of which the responses go over my head.
       
      Any assistance that could help me address this would be gratefully received.
       
      Boogie.

      I have my WHS 2011 client PC database on its own dedicated drive. This drive is now showing errors, and the client pc backups are now not completing. I have a replacement drive and a backup of the client PC database made before the failure. How can I replace the client PC backup drive, restore the client PC database, AND have WHS 2011 continue to use the restored client PC database?

      I have a WHS 2011 box with no special networking-related settings going on. Accessing shares on all the PCs in my house get around 100MB/s read and write. All macs are getting around 25MB/s.  Tried mounting shared volumes as cifs and smb.  I've found a few forums of people reporting the same with various forms of windows servers and though there are 100 hack-y suggestions, nothing has ever worked for me.
       
      Anyone have any ideas on what I could do to improve performance? If i can't get this working well, it'll mean a lot of buying decisions, completely reworking my network storage.

      Hi All,
       
      I am setting up a MicroServer with Windows Home Server 2011 running as a file server at my home (local area network).
       
      On my old file server, I was able to scan documents at my Brother MFC and send them directly to a the user's folder on the file-server via FTP.
       
      WHS 2011 is proving a little more challenging to setup.  Could someone please help with how to configure WHS2011?
       
      I've seen the youtube video by Mike on setting up WHS 2011 and FTP, but it only enables one central storage folder, rather than sending scanned documents to a user's individual folder.
       
      any help much appreciated.
       
      Thanks
