I usually access RTorrent via where the IP address is the address of my router. However it suddenly stopped working and I deleted RTorrent and reinstalled via opkg install rtorrent-easy-install.

Port left as default at 81, however I still cannot access it. I just receive a message: 'ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED', This site can’t be reached. refused to connect.

Tried with multiple devices, and checked that lighttpd and rtorrent are running.

Any help is appreciated.

I can see this when I try to open rtorrent in ssh:

Could not read resource file: ~/.rtorrent.rc.

Any advice?

Do a fresh install of rtorrent/rutorrent.
