Hi everyone,

I am using latest PG 8.1.3 and I had some trouble for making Flood (Rtorrent GUI frontend) working. I finally got it right, and wanted to share my adjustment to PG Flood container configuration.

I had to recreate Flood container within Portainer and add following ENV variable :

ENV = RTORRENT_SOCK / value = true

(as described here: https://github.com/jfurrow/flood at the bottom of the page).

Then when connecting to Flood UI, I set Rtorrent parameters like this: Rtorrent socket (not TCP) =


Maybe would it be needed to update PG official FLOOD container config to add this ENV variable for enabling RTORRENT_SOCK.

Thanks !
