qBittorrent & VPN
« on: November 20, 2015, 11:56:04 AM »
I'm having a hard time using qBittorrent with a VPN, and I'm not sure if I found a bug.

I correctly configured qBittorrent to use my VPN connection (basically changing only Network Interface in Advanced) and it didn't work.
After trying many things, I deactivated the VPN and set Network Interface to all. It worked, as should be expected, since this is the classic useage without VPN.

I stopped, reconfigured qBittorrent for VPN, started the VPN, started qBittorrent, and it worked.
Is this a bug ? This means the configuration won't work if you never used qBittorrent in a standard way at least once.

In addition, I still have the problem that although the light on the status bar is green, no DHT nodes are found when used with VPN.
What can I configure differently ?

There are several threads  already on the forum explaining about VPNs.
