I am watching my torrents and they don't seem to be seeding. It has been a few days and I haven't uploaded anything. These torrents are for a private tracker so seeding is very important.
I have a feeling it has something to do with incorrect permissions. Here is the setup.
I have transmission installed on my debian server with its download directory in /Raid/Home/Torrents/Downloads
I have changed the umask for transmission to "7" allowing the group and owner to read write execute and others to not be able to do anything. I also used this command on the folder "chmod g+s -R /Raid/Home/Torrents" which allows directories to inherit owners and groups from the parent.
This all works fine for sub directories etc but when I check the permissions of the actual files they only allow read and write but no execute for groups and owners.
Any idea why the umask is working for the directories but not the files?
