note: started a new thread as the old one was confusing and I finaly found the cause of my problem, just need to sort it out
The problem is that transmission-daemon doesn't listen on RPC port set in settings.json
Did a fresh install of Debian Wheezy, graphical install, no desktop, just SSH and system utilities chossen from install menu
After system install, aptitude update and transmission-daemon transmission-common transmission-cli instalation
everything worked fine right after instalation of the daemon, I stopped the daemon, changed the settings.json file, didn't start the daemon, but reboot the system and it all worked fine, but ...
once (ONCE !!!) I type in the console /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon start - the daemon will never more listen on rpc port on system start (boot), I have to restart or stop/start it manualy, then everything works, but I want it to work automaticaly after system power on
anyone knows why???? ... I need to get this fixed, reinstalled system 8 times because of this problem - to find where exactly it gets broken
EDIT: OK, found how to make it start automaticaly after power on, all I have to do is restart twice in a row without starting the daemon manualy, don't know why, but that's the way it works, once I start/restart the daemon manualy, I have to reboot twice in a row, the second time it start automaticaly
Might be because my system is atm using different NIC driver, I've got realtek 8168b and it's using 8169, so I have to learn how to install the driver from realtek website and that might cure the problem
