Linux / Re: Migrating from Transmission to qBittorrent
« on: Today at 10:01:56 AM »
Is there a way to install openoffice writer from yum? Can I add some repository then do that?

Well, not sure how this is even related to the topic, but... which distribution are you using?

Windows / Re: Settings recommendations for 500/500 fiber
« on: Today at 10:00:44 AM »
There is really no optimal way to do this.
- Your storage can be slow, can clog up if you download too fast. I would simply download slower. I have a fast connection but stick to like a few MB/s speeds, because do I really need that file 5 minutes faster? No. But, my system remains a lot more responsive.
- Your router can get "overloaded" / loaded with the connections. Keep them low. You can stick to the default values and have better results. I mean, increasing the numbers will not magically increase your speed. That's not how it works.

Hope that helps!

Suggestions / Re: What about Microsoft Store?

Sadly the Store Apps are "sandboxed", so it could be inconvenient to use... (just a thought)

I would just rent a seedbox for a week or two, maybe a month. If you pay attention to it, you can build a buffer so large, it will outlast you and even your children.
Seriously, best solution for outdated sites that still rely on silly things like raw ratio. (which is often faked, cheated, buffered with servers...thus completely useless)

Windows / Re: python.exe use bandwidth after closing qbittorrent

That is definitely weird. Do you use any custom search plugins for example?

Generic / Re: Maximise upload for gigabit
« on: May 12, 2018, 01:20:27 AM »
I mean if you just install qbittorrent on a Vultr VPS and give it a spin, you will reach ~900mbps speeds right off the bat, so the client is capable...
Switeck gave very good starting points where to find the issue.

Windows's "Task Manager" and "Resource Monitor" can also give you a good insight on what's bottlenecking you.

Well, because FOSSHUB is kind enough to provide the direct download / bandwidth. Torrent would make sense if we had to host our own downloads and we had no bandwidth.

Suggestions / Re: Publish qBittorrent on the Microsoft Store

It's very hard to package up an application AND Windows Store apps are extremely confined/limited. (They all run in a sandbox essentially.)
All above that, the Store is dying more and more. It's practically dead at this point - everyone has given up on it.

That said, I am not calling the shots, just saying.

Our SMTP broke for a while, as there was a new block on :25. Since :25 worked on any previous setting/place I kept using because it makes no sense whatsoever to mess with it, unless there are issues. Like just now. And of course, SMF has an error log, where it did not log anything about all this.

Either way, mail sending is back in action now.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Windows / Re: Seeding makes my internet crawl
« on: April 24, 2018, 12:03:33 PM »
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.

Thanks for your patience. Builds is next.
