I thought I'd answered these question, but apparently my post wasn't submitted correctly..
Hi, nice plugin
I'm the author of SynoDS, an application to control the download station from the iPhone/iPad !
Adding a download task from a binary file that is a torrent or nzb it possible (I do it in my application)
You can use "Charles Proxy" application if you want to spy data exchanges between the download station web interface and the Synology device if needed
Basically it is a post request to /download/downloadman.cgi for DSM3.0 and below and /webman/modules/DownloadStation/dlm/downloadman.cgi for 3.1 and newer (use charles proxy for details about the post parameters
That's a great iPhone and iPad app
. Thanks for the advise about the Charles Proxy application, I will look at it when I've got some more time!
At the moment the extension uses the download_redirector.cgi
url for all communication with DSM. Do you know if this url has the same options as the downloadman.cgi
url's? The download_redirector.cgi
url works as far as I know on all DSM versions, so it doesn't require a version check.
It would be nice if Synology had an API / documentation about the Download Station interface.

You actually deserve a small donation for your great work. Post your paypal!
I'm glad to hear you like the extension! It's very kind of you that you want to give a donation! To prevent spambots from getting my email address, I've made a PayPal donation button. It can be found here
! Please let me know if you've got any ideas for improvement of the extension.
The next update will include at least an option to hide seeding torrents and a Dutch localization. I will check what the possibilities are for uploading torrent files, but don't expect it in the next version.
