I've got it working! all that remains is duckdns, openvpn and this folder issue.
I don't mind using deluge or rutorrent but what I do need to do is assign the downloads (and quotas) to the shared folder so the torrents go to the 3tb drive...
I hope that makes sense.
the mount is /media/sf_torrents/ then hopefuly I can migrate the torrents over as well.. there's quite a few in there already.
Any guidance on how to do this?
Here's this being the last roadblock. I'm hoping the openvpn and duckdns steps are much easier!
