Transmission WebUI 409 in Docker Container

So, I’ve set up a docker container on my server host to act as a transmission-daemon seedbox. I installed openssh and transmission-daemon on the official Ubuntu 14.04 container. I forwarded port 9091 on the container to the host so I could access the container remotely, and I set up transmission-daemon with the following settings.json file:

Whenever I connect to the server via http://ip_addr:9091/transmission/web/ or http://ip_addr:9091/transmission/ I get the following error:

  • Is it possible to get host details from within docker container?
  • Access to a docker container on Heroku
  • Dokku DigitalOcean Deploy (Cannot access Rails Sample App)
  • pull image from remote registry - docker
  • Docker Python set utf-8 locale
  • How to enable sound connection between sipster / pjsip in docker and outside world?
  • 409: Conflict

    Your request had an invalid session-id header.

    To fix this, follow these steps:

    When reading a response, get its X-Transmission-Session-Id header and
    remember it Add the updated header to your outgoing requests When you
    get this 409 error message, resend your request with the updated
    header This requirement has been added to help prevent CSRF attacks.


    Any ideas what I can do to solve this? Thanks!

  • Why this docker file is not running with a shell script?
  • Docker. uninitialized constant Watir::Browse
  • Is it possible to set the default command when the `docker exec` command is run on an already running container?
  • Can't run Docker container due device mapper error
  • AWS Docker Golang. 'eb deploy' error
  • Running a longer command from docker
  • Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
