Authentication

The daemon looks at the file ~/.config/deluge/auth for doing authentication. The format of this file is straightforward, each line contains a username:password pair in plaintext. There should always be a 'localclient' entry for use by the UIs running locally by your user.

Note: If you do not have an auth file in your config folder, first run the daemon to have it created for you.

Example of auth file:

localclient:a7bef72a890
andrew:password
user3:anotherpass

Add new user:

echo "username:password" >> ~/.config/deluge/auth

From the GtkUI, you will have to add the host with a username and password, if you don't do this, you won't be able to connect to the host or tell if it's online.
