torrent download to network share

Post by digitalknight » Sat Aug 10, 2019 11:19 am

I have everything working very nicely on Mint but the last piece of the puzzle is downloading to a network share. Frostwire is my preferred app but I have tried 3 others and they also do not let me download to a network share. I spoke with Frostwire and they said:

"that's so weird. Maybe you should just make a symlink of the network drive folder to a place that does get listed on FrostWire and set that as the default save folder."

So I did that but it still does not show up in Frostwire when I go looking for it?

Perhaps I am not making the symlink correctly? I used the "ctl-shift" method.

Hopefully I can get this last piece of the puzzle resolved.

Thanks,
