I can connect to the transmission-daemon using transmission-remote or transmission-remote dot net and everything woks fine like adding torrents, changing settings, etc. But once the torrent start downloading the transmission-daemon becomes inaccessible as if it is not accepting conecctions to his interface unitl the torrent is downloaded then it's accessible again. I'm on a fast connection downloading 2-3MB/s so is that have to do anything with that fact? Anyone experience such a behaiviour?
How many torrents are you trying to download at once? I see this from time to time if I try to pull more than 3 torrents at once, also if it is filechecking a resumed torrent I some times see it. In my case the torrents are normally in the size range of 4-8 GB each so that can take some time to filecheck.
I have the same issue, I don't think there's any solution for this. The bottleneck is the CPU&memory, it cannot handle too many connections.
Usually I put only 4-5 torrents to harvest.
The story what happened yesterday was I had 5 linux image torrents under download with nice transfer speeds. After some time I noticed I cannot reach the web-interface. I took a look on the box and saw that the blue rings were frozen … sshd didn't work, even the power button didn't work.
So I had to plug off the power cable and back - which restarted it (haha), and I had a nice raid resync for 5 hours (of course it's still better than hdd death).
The HDDs are ok (I monitor them oftenly), so the only reason I could find was that Transmission ate up all the CPU and memory.
I noticed that when I reduce the total peers number to around below 30 the connection comes back.
BTW What is the maximum speed you're getting out of transmission? Mine seems to be around 2-3MB max while at the PC I can download the same torrent at speeds of 5-6MB/s.

Many people misunderstands MBWE. It is not a PC, this is a NAS with deliberately limited hardware capabilities.
This is not a PC or server, check your MBWE's CPU and memory and you'll find your PocketPC nearly has the same. :)
