Generic / Re: Upload Speeds

qBitTorrent is improving if you see even occasional better results than uTorrent.
I pretty much never did with similar or identical torrents loaded, and this despite doing pretty thorough tests in that regard.

Suggestions / Re: Automatically Update Daily Trackers List
« on: September 14, 2019, 07:46:48 pm »
There is also a blacklist of apparently bad trackers, which isn't explained why they are bad.
Many big and small trackers have ceased to exist, but many torrents continue to include them. In BitTorrent clients that support a tracker blacklist, tracker announces to those trackers are not attempted.

MAC / Re: batch editing torrent file
« on: September 13, 2019, 09:46:57 pm »
It's been requested a few times...

Multi-tracker EDITING nonexistent!
Add way to mass update announce url
change properties of multiple torrents
Edit tracker for selected torrents and other features request
Is there a way to Edit all trackers simultaneously ?? Thanks..
Add tracker to multiple torrents
Feature: Tracker manager: bulk add/remove/edit outdated tracker/s of all torrents
Batch-edit tracker URL on multiple torrents in the same time
[Wishlist] Tracker List sorting
[Wishlist] Default Tracker List
[Wishlist] Add the ability to edit trackers in torrent add dialog

...but the only way to speed up the process would be to join qBitTorrent development and make the code to do that, because it seems the very few remaining qBitTorrent devs are still busy trying to fix show-stopping crashes that happen to a few people.

MAC / Re: Not able to seed any torrent

The dreaded (largenumber) peers amount probably happened due to past peers never reported to your qBitTorrent end as now-seeds or gone-for-good.

There's a few problems in qBitTorrent (and libtorrent which qBT uses) that prevents very high speeds to single/individual peers and seeds.
uTP support is rather slow and worse has considerable packet loss in my LAN and internet tests.
qBitTorrent (and presumably libtorrent) handles upload slots rather poorly and also seems "reluctant" to connect to peers known to be on the torrent, at least compared to uTorrent.
qBT also can be a bit of a CPU hog at high speeds -- and some of its code is single-threaded so once it maxes out a CPU core won't go any faster.

Windows / Re: Remote access and VPN

If the VPN client on the router still connects to a remote VPN server, the router still wouldn't need to be port-forwarded.

You might need to configure some sort of bridge (rules?) on the router though to get that to work.
VPNs can't be very CPU intensive, and routers tend to have terribly weak CPUs in them, so only try router VPN client as an experiment.

Does your ISP or router firewall your qBitTorrent connection?

Are these torrents marked with the private flag, where connectivity is extremely crippled?

Yes that's sounds like quite an ordeal. At some point I want to set up my own vpn server as well but Im not there yet. Im planning on starting run the vpn client on the router instead of on the pc, maybe that will generate new problems. It's possible Ive missed something but do you mean I only need to open the port that the VPN server is using? How will the packets know where to go from the vpn port to the web ui port if I don't use port forwarding?
You don't need to port forward to access websites. VPNs are essentially web servers/websites in the same way -- you have a connection TO them and they route packets to you. Port forwarding is only needed for incoming connections.

Windows / Re: Advice on backing up qBittorrent download queue
« on: September 11, 2019, 08:38:40 am »
Better read these links then:,2826.msg13292/topicseen.html#msg13292      Backup qBT settings!

Note: That will only back up the .torrent files and qBT's torrent listing, whether they be seeds, downloading, or queued.
You'll have to back up the contents of the torrents separately.

And windows or a virus/trojan/malware/random power glitch could've corrupted them slightly causing these problems even if you haven't touched the settings.

...That's assuming the cause isn't a bug in qBitTorrent!
If it is a bug, all the more reason to back up the settings and check!

Generic / Re: seeds peers
« on: September 10, 2019, 01:14:20 am »
The numbers in parenthesis are "previously seen" estimates of peers/seeds that might have once been on the torrent even briefly in the last few weeks/months/years.
Those numbers are often bogus, due to bugs in qBitTorrent/libtorrent and other BitTorrent well as over-counting anything that's either multi-WAN (even having IPv4 and IPv6 at the same time counts) or changes ip addresses sometimes.

The numbers outside the parenthesis are the currently connected (or attempting to connect) peers or seeds.

Windows / Re: Remote access and VPN

Im running Win 10, my VPN client is an app in Windows and im using Windows Defender Firewall and Hardware fw in DD-Wrt running on a Linksys Wrt acm 3200.

I think you need to verify if the port youre using with the web-ui is reachable through your VPN connection. There are lots of sites and tools for that.
It didnt work for me allthough I know I had configured portforwarding correctly in DD-WRT so it was very confusing.

What I think is happening in a lot of cases is that the VPN provider is blocking the port youre trying to use, acting like a second or third firewall.
I'm pretty sure that port forwarding your local router (that's running DD-WRT) would only help if the remote Web-ui is trying to connect through your regular IPv4 ip address and NOT using the VPN's ip address.

This is assuming your VPN connection goes through a VPN server outside your LAN.
Things can be way more confusing if you've got a VPN server of your own -- with multiple starting points and end points both inside and outside your DD-WRT router's LAN.


az-calc's settings are based on false assumptions about peer/seed quality dating almost back to the time when 56k dial-up modems were still common.
I've posted about that a few times before on this forum just how awful those settings are.

Back up qBT's settings and .torrent files and reinstall fresh.

If that works, try with just your .torrent files and slowly change qBT's settings till it messes up again...that way maybe the programmers can know what to fix.

It could still be a networking driver issue...but antivirus issues are probably ruled out.

Does any other BitTorrent client (like Transmission on Mac) also show high CPU issues?
