What does this do?

This is a puppet module, written to allow you to install the Deluge torrent client on your FreeBSD server. It makes use of ZFS, and manages your deluge user, as well as folder locations and configs. By default, remote access is turned off, but can easily be enabled (see below).


This module requires you to also have installed Snonux's ZFS module, available at

I can't connect!

Did you edit ./files/auth and ./files/core.conf? By default, Deluge does NOT allow remote connections from the desktop client. You need to edit core.conf and change "allow_remote": false, on line 24 to "allow_remote": true, to allow the daemon to talk to a remote client. You also need to edit ./files/auth and add your user to a new line. See for more information!
