Choosing RSS Feeds

RSSTray is specific about what torrent feeds it will support.  It assumes that the url of a rss feed entry is the url of the torrent.  If you supply rss feeds that does not follow this convention, the posting function of the application will not work.

Connecting to your Azureus Server

To configure your connection to your rss server, enter the url of your server with a connection string in the following format:

Connection Syntax:  http://<serveraddress>:<port>/index.tmpl?d=u
Sample Connection:
 
http://192.168.0.1:6883/index.tmpl?d=u


Using RSSTray

Once your RSS feeds have been subscribed to in the configuration window, the application will begin to poll the feeds at the interval specified in your configuration.  When the application finds a new torrent added to a feed the recent torrent window will appear telling you the number of found torrents.



From the recent torrent window, the user has three options 
1) The user may discard the torrent by deleting it from the list. 
2) The user may "Post" the torrent to thier azureus server

Posting Torrents

When a torrent is checked in the recent torrent window, the application will attempt to begin downloading the torrent on the Azureus server.  If any errors are encountered when posting, they will be described in the recent torrent window.
