Generic / Chilling effects on qBitTorrent...
« Last post by Switeck on Today at 04:36:38 AM »
These represent a threat to all of us:
AV false-flagging open source BitTorrent software as malware is nothing new, but it still causes a chilling effect that scares away a LOT of people.
I've seen it a few times in the last couple years, and I don't know yet whether to blame it on a campaign to shut qBT down, sheer incompetence, or both.
Google arbitrarily refusing to allow ads and ad revenue for BitTorrent software projects is more severe.

"Witness, the decline of society."
Where free speech and free expression ...that isn't liked by others ...can get shut down silently through back-door means.
Windows / Saving resume data stopping transfers
« Last post by Retsamevals on July 22, 2017, 09:04:15 PM »
I am trying to fully switch to qBittorrent for hosting all the torrents I seed.

So far I have loaded 3250 torrents. 3249 seeding and 1 downloading

qBT seems to be handling this fantastically. but there is a problem with the "Save resume data interval" setting. As you can see in the picture below it takes quite a while to finish the task of saving the resume data. I have extended it to every 60 minutes to mitigate this issue, but I still seem to be spending about 12 to 13 percent of the time with no network activity due to saving resume data.

With over 3000 torrents this is probably reasonable and this may be my fault for not understanding what the resume data actually contains. Why do I need resume data for seeding torrents? I would not see the issue in a transfer getting cut off when I have all of the data commited to disk.

It there anything I can change to fix this?

What negative effects would a 24 hours interval introduce? Pushing a default setting to 20 times higher is not too odd for me, but nearly 500 times seems risky without knowing more.

Are there any plans to implement a staggered cycle to only stop one torrent at a time?

I would rather avoid anything that leads me to recheck all torrent data as this takes up to half a week.

If you make it this far, thanks for reading!
Windows / Can't update qBittorrent! Reverts back to 3.3.10
« Last post by diesel01 on July 22, 2017, 07:53:12 PM »

Every time I install a new update for qBittorrent, after I shutdown the program and open it back up, a notification box pops up asking me to update to the newest version. I even tried to completely uninstall the program using Revo Uninstaller, completely removing any traces of registry of the program but the notification keeps popping up!

The strange thing is when I open the program up for the first time, It displays the correct version which is 3.3.14. But after I close it and open it, it goes back to 3.3.10 and says that I should update. Another thing is that I can see the correct version in the exe of the program in Properties. So it might be the UI that's causing the problem.

I'm using Windows 8.1

Found out that disabling https solves the problem.
Unfortunately I need https. Tried to generate new certs but it doesn't help.
Generic / Re: Best way to implement qbit on a nas?

Ah, i see. I rely on RSS, so that absolutely has to work. I was thinking linux mint with lxde so i could run the full version of qbit and then install linux equivalent of teamviewer and enable webgui. I also think i remember ciaobaby once mentioned that if you wanted performace, just do that and be done with it or something along those lines.

Does the SoftEther VPN's network interface or ip address show up in qBitTorrent's advanced settings for binding?

Also, read this:

I found the best option on my QNAP was to install a Linux virtual machine and run qBittorrent in that via remote control (VNC). Might not be the most efficient, but it gives the full capabilities (RSS feeds, etc) that you don't get via qbittorrent-nox + webui.

I also use lxc containers as VPN endpoints - the default gateway on the torrent VM is to a VPN container (using the internal virtual switch) so no unencrypted traffic from the torrent VM ever leaves the NAS.

What do I do to get rid of this message. I redownloaded QBittorent and I am using SoftEther VPN. The message Connection Status: No Direct Connection shows up. How do I solve this. Also, I have solved this in the past and I don't remember what to do.

Was a bit unsure where to put this.
I'm getting my self a nas, hp prolient microserver, a dual core 2.2ghz with 8gb ram. But i'm unsure what OS i should install on it to run qbit with, should i go nas4free/freenas and try and get qbittorrent-nox running or install qbit in a jail. Maybe linux, or just run windows on it and use the webgui. The box will do nothing else than being a seperate torrent client.

I'm wondering what sort of solutions others have done. Suggestions ?
