Adding torrent via remote-access - Server filessystem not browsable

Description

I do have a server running deluged conecting via windows-gui / vnc & local gui / sftp & autoscanned folder to add new torrents. Today i tried to access via linux-gui and had to experience that adding torrents will show me the local filesystem of my remote-machine but not the server-FS where the torrents actually are saved. Under linux I couldnt browse or enter the path manually. With the windows-gui at least it was possible to enter the path manually - browsing though the foldes wasnt possible also.

I don't really understand the problem? You were using the deluge-gtk interface on a linux box and connecting to a remote daemon? When you went to add a torrent you couldn't browse the remote servers filesystem? This is how it should work.

The description is a bit confusing so I may not understand what you're trying to say.

For ex: on my server I do have a disk for music for mounted at /media/music. Adding a music-torrent via remote I can't assign this folder as destination for the file(s) as I do not have a folder /media/music on my remote machine. Neither I can enter the path manually nor I can browse though the server's filesystem (which would be the best solution imo).

I am also confused at to what you are asking for Plexus. When adding a torrent in GTK you can enter the server filesystem path manually in 'Download Location' without any issue.

Are you sure you are connected to the server's deluged because it sounds like you are connected to localhost. Can you check the details in the connection manager.

I just figured out, what the problem was: I connected to my server via ssh tunnel. I opened a port in my firewall now and with a direct connection it was possible to enter a path manually. Nevertheness the possibility to browse though the existing folders would be a nice feature as not everybody has got his folder-structure in his head. Besides I do not know if the login and data is transfered in plain text or crypted and therefore (I guess not only) I generally prefer an encrypted connection via ssh.
