Windows / Re: Seeding makes my internet crawl

Well I would simply lower the upload even further a bit, or just rely on a seedbox or cheap dedibox, they both barely cost anything. (I mean 5-10 euro a month costs less than electricity for keeping your machine up to seed all the time.)

Windows / Re: Older versions and security
« on: April 23, 2018, 08:30:47 AM »
So are there greater risks, whether generic and statistical or specific and known, with using older versions of Qbittorrent?

As Switeck said, VPN/SOCKS5 wise there may be some stuff (though I have been using both since v2 on Linux, FreeBSD, Windows and never had any leak or issues whatsoever).
Security wise, as long as there is no exploit (public), the answer is, we don't know. We can't tell. If there will be a huge security vulnerability in the client, I am sure the release notes will say that the new version is a security fix. This happened once in the past IIRC.

That said, if the attackers will not share the exploit, we will never know. Then again, the only attack surface for qBittorrent is the webUI, so if you use it with a VPN (OpenVPN, SoftEther, router's vpn, whatever), you *should* be 100% safe.

Website is up and running. (With only a 1 minute downtime, yay.)

Thanks for your patience. Builds is next.

There will be a maintenance on both sites today, I will be moving the forums and main site to a more secure place, so both will receive additional security measures.
Builds will be served out from a new place, and depending on bandwidth requirements, the site will use a CDN-like solution as well.

Either way, expect minor downtime, no breakages. Thank you.

(There is now GPDR as well in the EU.)

Simply use "chown" to set your proper permissions for your directory.
https://askubuntu.com/questions/693418/use-chown-to-set-the-ownership-of-all-a-folders-subfolders-and-files/693423

For example, I have a user called "peter". On Ubuntu, that means I have:
User: peter
Group: peter

And of course, a home folder in: /home/peter

So if I mess around as "sudo" or "root", I have to fix the permissions by doing this:
sudo chown -R peter:peter /home/peter

What this means:
"sudo" - because we do this as root
"chown" - change owner
" -R" - recursive (all folders and files inside)
"peter:peter" - New owner is peter user, in the peter group
"/home/peter" - The home location

In fact I have such scripts on the server too because permissions just always mess up. (For example I fiddle around with backups, I have to do a maintenance, etc. So I set it to always just fix permissions like every half an hour. It really takes like no time to do so.)

! Keep in mind, on CentOS, you might have a different group than your username. Check.

! Make sure you set the permission on the proper folder, and not somewhere else

Linux / Re: Screen size on QT too large
« on: April 14, 2018, 09:50:00 AM »
You need some "qtconfig" tool for whatever Qt version and distro you use. Gnome is GTK, qBittorrent (And KDE) is Qt.
So you have the GTK stuff set up, but don't have a config for Qt.

Magnet links require you to be open 99% of the time.

The solution:

http://magnet2torrent.me/

(the best)

Then I add the following trackers as well:
https://github.com/ngosang/trackerslist/blob/master/trackers_all.txt

Works like a charm.
(Magnet is useless, unless you have fully open connectivity.)

Cafe lounge / Re: qBittorrent Discord server (pilot)
« on: March 23, 2018, 07:48:58 AM »
Excellent question!

And, a hard to answer one. I feel that ...two things motivated my decision.
- IRC is very good and can be even self-hosted. Open source communities also love it. But, for some reason, our IRC never took off. And, even very old ones only have 1-2 active folks around usually. Discord combines IRC with a searchable history, so even people who are not experts on IRC (and can run bouncer, etc) can use it, can read back.
- I feel like today, as much as I hate segregation, the more platform a service, community or whatever covers, the more people it can reach. Because some folks prefer forums, some prefer IRC, some... you get the idea.

That said, I am not a 100% Discord advocate. I would side with RMS instead of advocating a service ran by a Chinese multi-billionaire company(Tencent). But, until someone comes along and writes an open-source implementation, I guess we will just have to deal with the devil.

I mean, it's not so bad at the moment:
- https://discordapp.com/open-source
- https://discordapp.com/privacy

The link is not valid anymore, sadly. :/

Sorry about that, happens all the time. Even though I set "link never expire." Please use the new link in OP or the one that Bloodcore posted. (thank you for the quick response)

Hmm, not a bad idea, please open a ticket on our Github, if there is no ticket out there already. :) Thank you for the suggestion!

The site just seems like a regular scam/stolen website? You sure this is the link?

Cafe lounge / qBittorrent Discord server
« on: March 20, 2018, 07:57:09 PM »
So, as a new medium, I have launched a new Discord server. I know we had and still have an IRC, but it's usually pretty empty. Discord seems to be the modern IRC at the moment. So who knows, maybe it will be real popular. We will see.

Who can join?
Anyone, of course.

Why have one more place?
Most Discord folks are on plenty of servers, so +1 or -1 really does not matter. And who use it, it's the easiest solution.

What happens if it does not take off?
Well, I will just delete the server, it's fine.
