Deluge is a fully-featured cross-platform BitTorrent client. It is Free Software, licensed under the GNU GPLv3+ and adheres to freedesktop standards enabling it to work across many desktop environments. Deluge contains the common features to BitTorrent clients such as Protocol Encryption, DHT, Local Peer Discovery (LSD), Peer Exchange (PEX), UPnP, NAT-PMP, Proxy support, Web seeds, global and per-torrent speed limits. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install Deluge on your Synology NAS using Docker.

Install Container Manager via Synology “Package Center”. If you run an older DSM version (under 7.2), search for Docker instead of Container Manager.
Go to File Station and open the docker folder. Inside the docker folder, create one new folder and name it deluge. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Note: Be careful to enter only lowercase, not uppercase letters.
Go to Control Panel / Task Scheduler / Create / Scheduled Task / User-defined script. Follow the instructions in the images below.
Once you click on User-defined script a new window will open. Follow the instructions below:
- General: In the Task field type in Install Deluge. Uncheck “Enabled” option. Select root User.
- Schedule: Select Run on the following date then select “Do not repeat“.
- Task Settings: Check “Send run details by email“, add your email then copy paste the code below in the Run command area. After that click OK.
docker run -d --name=deluge \ -p 8112:8112 \ -p 6881:6881 \ -p 6881:6881/udp \ -e PUID=1026 \ -e PGID=100 \ -e TZ=Europe/Bucharest \ -v /volume1/docker/deluge:/config \ -v /volume1/web/downloads:/downloads \ --restart always \ ghcr.io/linuxserver/deluge
Note: Before you paste the code above in the Run command area below, change the value numbers for PUID and PGID with your own values. (Follow my step by step guide on how to do this.)
Note: Before you paste the code above in the Run command area below, change the value for TZ (Select your current Time Zone from this list).
Note: in the code above after -v /volume1/docker/deluge:/config \ you have to add your personal path to downloads. For example I have used my personal downloads path folder -v /volume1/web/downloads:/downloads \ Change it according to your preferences. -v /path/toyour/downloads:/downloads \
After you click OK on STEP 5 a new warning pop up window will open. Click OK.
After you click OK, type in your DSM Password then click Submit. Follow the instructions in the image below.
After you click Submit on STEP 6, select your “Install Deluge” Task then click the “Run” tab. You will be asked to run Install Deluge – click OK. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Go back to STEP 1 or you will deal with karma 🙂
The installation process can take up to a few seconds/minutes. It will depend on your Internet speed connection. Now open your browser and type in http://Synology-ip-address:8112 type in the default password. Click Login. Follow the instructions in the images below.
You will be prompted to change the current password with your own password. Go to Preferences / Interface. Change the current password with your own password. Click Apply. Follow the instructions in the image below.
After your password is successfully changed click OK. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Go to Preferences / Downloads and add your own download folder you have previously set at STEP 5 then click Apply. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Click Connection Manager. A new pop-up will open Click Connect. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Start to add your torrent file URL and enjoy Deluge!
