#6101 new Enhancement

Enable/disable transfers based on connected WiFi network

Reported by: mitar Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Transmission Version: 2.92
Severity: Normal Keywords:


I would like for transfers to be done only when I am connected to a certain WiFi? network. Having to manually take care of this end remember to disable transfers as I move is very error prone.

I do not think so. From my reading of #2313 it seems it is about binding to an interface when you have multiple interfaces available?

This is how I would have implement it. Just sharing to clarify what the reporter is seeking. .

For any torrent being configured, in addition to settings like upload and download speed limit, I would also add an option to enter manually or select Wifi SSIDs. The download/upload of the torrent would then happen only if the current default gateway is through one of those wifi SSIDs. Or if the APIs for the OS only give the current SSID, I would let the transfer happen if it is one of the given SSIDs.

I would also add an option that controls what happens when the current connection is a Wired network or a USB Wired network. The options would be "Transfer", "Don't transfer" and "Ask Every time"

I do not really need such granularity, per torrent. For me, a global setting would be enough.
