Note: If you need to access a page, you can enter the login as part of the URL as a simple workaround. (http://user:<email address hidden>)

For Transmission daemon, the url is http://user:<email address hidden>:9091/transmission/web/ and works correctly on my bq ubuntu phone.
The url can be LAN or WAN.
The password doesn't accept some characters, such as "/".
