I am running the tomatoUSB custom firmware with the latest shibby mod on my Asus RT-n66u router.

I have configured the transmission web interface that was preloaded and its up and running. Now I am looking for unrar/unpack script(?) that unrars (if its rared) completed downloads to a given directory.

What is the easiest way to accomplish this?

I found it out my self so here is what I did:

  1. Partitioned external disk with data and ext2 partion
  2. Installed Optware on ext2 partition.
  3. Download unrar with optware
  4. Added this to Custom configuration on tomato bittorrent settings

"script-torrent-done-enabled": true, "script-torrent-done-filename": "/opt/bin/unrar x -y -p- -o+ '$TR_TORRENT_DIR/$TR_TORRENT_NAME/*.rar' '$TR_TORRENT_DIR/$TR_TORRENT_NAME/'"

Here is the working code:

"script-torrent-done-enabled": true,
"script-torrent-done-filename": "/opt/bin/unrar x -y -p- -o+ '$TR_TORRENT_DIR/$TR_TORRENT_NAME/*.rar' '$TR_TORRENT_DIR/$TR_TORRENT_NAME/'",
