new torrents keep stalling
« on: November 24, 2018, 09:55:32 AM »
When I add new torrents they keep being on 'stalled' mode immediately. Anyone know why this might happen?

I've looked through the forums but haven't been able to find a solution.

Thanks


ps - Windows 7, software v 3.2.3

I have the exact same problem. Could anyone help, please? I checked options and preferences and they're all as I left them, yet all downloads start paused instead of in queue as before.

Windows 10, v4.1.4

I have the same problem, all new torrent I create will just sit there stalled. When someone attempts to download it I will get an I/O error. So I have to delete it and then add it back manually.

If I try to nudge/poke to newly created torrent (pause/start) then it turns into a downloading torrent (instead of seeding), and it is stalled. Very confusing. I'll have delete it and then add it back manually.

If I exit the client, then restart. The newly created torrent will show "missing file" error. And I'll have delete it and then add it back manually.

What is going on? I've been using qbit for years and I've never had this problem. I installed a newer version and I suddenly get this problem.

I'm on v4.1.4 Windows 7 64bit

well i was never able to find out what the problem was. i just uninstalled and deleted everything - EVERYTHING even preferences, torrent files - the whole lot and reinstalled the latest version on a clean slate. it looks to be working now. so that was the fix for me.

it seems that going to "tools" -> "options"  -> "bittorrent" -> uncheck "torrent queueing" solves the problem, at leat for me

I experienced this issue today on v. 4.1.5 but was able to fix it. I went into Options > Advanced > Network Interface, and noticed that qBittorrent wasn't using the correct network interface. I switched it from an inactive Local Area Connection to my VPN network interface, and the torrent started immediately.

I hope that helps someone else out there who has the same issue.

The program stalls because it cannot find the files.
First, find out where the files are stored.
Right click on the torrent(s) and click on "Set Location".
Now, you have to "Force Recheck" to get the program to locate the files and begin seeding.

Had the same problem with torrents stalling. When I paused them they would Error.

Found out that the entire process was being blocked by BitDefender's Ransomware protection. Disabled that and everything was working fine again.

Necroing this thread.  I've been getting this. Been away from torrents for a while. Came back and notice getting this with latest QB version. No firewall or a/v blocks. Restarting QB has no effect either.

I've been getting the stalling problem too out of the blue recently after several years of working normally; long story short back in the day with uTorrent I would forward the program's port in my router and it would work fine.

After switching to qBittorrent I noticed that it would handle the traffic without needing to forward any port (most likely because of the "Use UPnP / NAT-PMP port forwarding from my router" option).

Now that the stalling happened, I tried to forward the port that is under Options -> Connection -> Listening Port, and uncheck the "Use UPnP / NAT-PMP port forwarding from my router" box. After restarting qBittorrent all my torrents started again (at least so far).

I think maybe something that I cannot see changed at either my router level or my ISP level

Hope that helps!
