transmission permission trouble
I have the transmission bittorrent client daemon set up at my ubuntu server, and I'm having some problems with my permissions. Namely, transmission can't seem accept new torrents, it pauses download and says 'permission denied'.
The download directory is on my sdb, mounted as sudo, with group plugdev.
Several people have ssh access to this server, so I did a chmod 770 to the mount point, since I don't want people accessing that disk (I belong to the plugdev group).
Now, when I do a ps aux, the following is returned:
1000 4638 2.0 0.7 69744 15336 ? Sl Mar28 148:06 /usr/bin/transmission-daemon -f
I was under the impression 1000 is the current user. Is this not so?
If it is, how come the daemon is being denied access to the directory?
it's a ntfs filesystem, in case that helps
