    Need help setting password for transmission cli!

    Can someone please help me?
    I've been able to access my transmission torrent remotely for some time now and I was wondering, how do I enable a password?
    I'm using ubuntu server edition 9.10 if that helps.

    here is my transmission-daemon/settings.json

    "alt-speed-down": 50,
    "alt-speed-enabled": false,
    "alt-speed-time-begin": 540,

    If anyone could help me with this it would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you for your time.

    I got it! only just after I posted.
    Don't heckle me, I already feel stupid for posting.

    All I did was change these settings in my .json file

    "rpc-authentication-required": true,
    "rpc-bind-address": "0.0.0.0",
    "rpc-enabled": true,
    "rpc-password": "PASSWORD GOES HERE",
    "rpc-port": 9091,
    "rpc-username": "dan",
    "rpc-whitelist": "127.0.0.1",
    "rpc-whitelist-enabled": false,
    "speed-limit-down": 75,
    "speed-limit-down-enabled": true,
    "speed-limit-up": 25,
    "speed-limit-up-enabled": true,
    "umask": 18,
    "upload-slots-per-torrent": 14
    }
