Windows / Re: qBittorrent and "basic" privacy?
« Last post by Ica on September 25, 2017, 12:10:15 pm »
You might want to disable UPnP/NAT-PMP in qBitTorrent if you're using VPN -- qBT is trying to forward your router instead of the remote VPN gateway.


That seem to be the logical step to take for better safety.

Yet I assume qBT has failed to do this so far based on the Doileak test?

(I tested several times actually with several different settings ... including the only safety measure beeing my VPN beeing active and qBT configured to be as "unsafe" as possible (maximum performance at cost of security) - even then Doileak returned the VPN IP.

You mean the "history" of all Set Locations ever?
Because mine's getting REALLY LONG...
...and I'm not sure where it is either. :-\

I think "slow torrents" is hard-coded in qBitTorrent to mean less than 1 KILOBYTES/second download OR upload speed.
Even if both DL and UL were 0.9 KB/sec, it still counts as slow.

Suggestions / Usefulness of 'Relevance' column in WebUI
« Last post by JReis on September 25, 2017, 03:51:51 am »

Pictured is a torrent that has stalled for me. It is a very large torrent 100GB+ and I had only selected a portion of the contents to download. It wasn't intuitively clear to me what the 'Relevance' column was actually showing me. My expectation was that it would show what percentage of the pieces I still needed were possessed by a given peer. Obviously this is not the case. It took quite a bit longer than I'd like to admit, but eventually it occurred to me that the column must be showing the percentage not of the pieces I still needed but of all the pieces I had chosen to download.

This explains the numbers I'm seeing (multiple peers with the same relevance percentage as my own completed percentage). But if I'm correct about how the relevance number is being calculated, it isn't a very useful datum. There's no way no way of knowing if any given peer has the pieces I actually need (ie the pieces I want but don't yet have). A peer that shows 30% relevance might have all the pieces I need to complete the torrent or none of them.

A quick poke around the internet led me here and subsequently here. A comment here reads: "Relevance", "i.e: How relevant this peer is to us. How many pieces it has that we don't."—which is exactly what I would have expected the column to provide.

I'm not a programmer or familiar enough with github to determine what the code there actually does or even if that code actually made it into qBittorrent. But I think it is fair to say that the Relevance column in qBittorrent (I'm running 3.3.7 from the Debian Stable repo) tell me what I actually want to know. So I'd love confirmation of how the number is actually calculated and also to request that the information displayed be altered to more clearly show what portion of the pieces I still need (to complete my download) are possessed by a given peer. If that cannot be calculated from the information available (I don't know enough about the torrent protocol to know for sure), then it would be nice if what is shown was more clearly described.

Windows / One more newbie question: strip top level containing folders?
« Last post by sindyr on September 25, 2017, 12:34:24 am »
Hey, just set up QBittorrent, and I had one more question: Most of the torrents I download are just a file or two, yet they always get their own folder. How to I get QBittorrent to skip creating the top folder and just save the internal files directly to my save directory?

Example: Downloading a torrent that has three files:

BirthdayParty.mkv
BirthdayParty.srt
banner.txt

What happens is in my save directory I get a brand new "BirthdayParty" folder, which then contains all three files. I would strongly *prefer* that NO new folder get created and all three files are saved directly in my save directory. This prevents the proliferation of useless "junk" folders that I have to delete anyways.

Is there a way to make this happen?

Thanks.

QBittorrent (Linux) is generating filenames with backslash embedded thus screwing up file/dir recognition.

Any ideas how to fix?

What is the definition of a "slow torrent" in "Do not count slow torrents in these limits"?

Generic / Where is the information/setting stored (file) for "Set Location"?
« Last post by thetruthisalie on September 24, 2017, 05:27:37 pm »
Hi.
Could someone tell me where is the information/setting stored (file) for a given torrent, "Set Location" option?

Did the Doileak test with qBittorrent.

Turns out that both Torrent IP and Torrent DNS returns the VPN based values.   
So I suppose my question regarding "privacy at basic level" is resolved :)


Still don't know why the excecution log lists both the ISP IP and the VPN IP.

Could it be that it "finds" both - and then the VPN IP "overrides" the ISP IP? (since it is listed AFTER the ISP IP in the log)
