The first thing we want to do is make sure that we have
docker installed on the host machine you want
to be running these services.
If you do not get a version number, be sure to install docker.
Next, we need to start the transmission server but only run the torrent server when it is connected to OpenVPN, using the NordVPN service.
All of that sounds hard but thankfully someone has created a Docker image that does just that!
You can get it going with the following bash command
#!/bin/bash # https://github.com/haugene/docker-transmission-openvpn docker run --cap-add=NET_ADMIN -d \ -v $PWD/data:/data \ -v /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime:ro \ -e CREATE_TUN_DEVICE=true \ -e OPENVPN_PROVIDER=NordVPN \ -e OPENVPN_USERNAME=my_username \ -e OPENVPN_PASSWORD=my_password \ -e LOCAL_NETWORK=192.168.0.0/16 \ --log-driver json-file \ --log-opt max-size=10m \ -p 9091:9091 \ haugene/transmission-openvpn
I like to keep these as
.sh files and I would put that as
give it the ability to be ran
chmod +x start_open_vpn_transmission.sh
and then run it
Now we can go to
<IP OF SERVER>:9091, we should see the Transmission WebUI
Once that is working, we need to start the service that will download the files based on RSS feeds.
We will be using yts and showrss for that along with
transmission-rss. Once again, there’s
a Docker image for that!
#!/bin/bash # https://github.com/nning/transmission-rss docker run -d \ -v $(pwd)/transmission-rss.conf:/etc/transmission-rss.conf \ --link dc5add3e0a1d:transmission \ --name "transmission-rss" \ haugene/transmission-rss
and since that references some
.conf file, let’s create that as well
feeds: - url: http://showrss.info/user/_SHOWRSSID_.rss?magnets=true&namespaces=true&name=null&quality=null&re=null - url: http://yts.ws/rss regexp: 1080p # only download movies in 1080p
To test if this worked, you should be able to go to the Transmission WebUI and see that it has more videos to download, based on the results of the RSS feeds.
Finally, we need to start the Plex server. IN DOCKER of course.
#!/bin/bash mkdir ~/plex docker run \ -d \ --name plex \ --restart always \ -p 32400:32400/tcp \ -p 3005:3005/tcp \ -p 8324:8324/tcp \ -p 32469:32469/tcp \ -p 1900:1900/udp \ -p 32410:32410/udp \ -p 32412:32412/udp \ -p 32413:32413/udp \ -p 32414:32414/udp \ -e TZ="Europe/London" \ -e PLEX_CLAIM="claim-MY_CLAIM" \ -e ADVERTISE_IP="http:/MY_IP:32400/" \ -h MY_IP \ -v ~/plex/config:/config \ -v ~/plex/transcode:/transcode \ -v $PWD/data:/data \ plexinc/pms-docker
