[Split Topic] Seeding from NAS devices
« on: February 07, 2016, 11:56:07 AM »
Anyone here been successfully seeding from a NAS? Utorrent doesn't seem to happy to seed multiple torrents from a NAS, is qBittorrent any better?

Not personally, but based on comments from others, mapping to a drive letter or filing system mount point and not automatically starting qbittorrent with the OS  is the way to go.

uTorrent has an issue dealing with the files not being accessible when the NAS goes to sleep.
I guess the only way I'm going to see if this works right is to just install it and see what happens.
Any issues with running uTorrent and qBitorrent together simultaneously?

If they are on the same machine, DHT, PeX and LPD/LSD will have to be disabled on one of them.

I can tell you exactly what will happen, qbittorrent will put all tasks into an error state (0% progress and paused) just as it does when a drive is unplugged or not mounted see https://qbforums.shiki.hu/index.php/topic,4100.0.html

So under Windows is qBittorrent going to behave exactly like uTorrent, say the file is not available and then error it?
Is this an OS limitation? Seems odd that the file request isn't kept active while the drive comes online.

Not OS, but libtorrent, because that handles the disc I/O, as soon as the session is instantiated  for any task it checks the existence of the payload and throws an error should it not located there.

I use a Drobo and the thing that I found w/ qBittorrent is that it doesn't like "//drobo/public"   I use an actual drive letter "z" and no issues.

For example:

Z:/TV Shows/xyz (sub folders)

vice:

//drobo/public/TV Shows/xyz (sub folders

I'm not sure what your using, but once I figured that out, I just use my defaulted drive letter for all my stuff.  Drobo keeps the drive letter active, but every so often it "forgets", and I'll have to restart drobo to get the drive letter re-mounted.

Hope this helps...
