Generic / Different seeding rules per tracker?
« Last post by acester on Today at 04:22:45 PM »
Hey guys,

I am wondering if there is a way to set seeding rules per tracker. The reason for this is on my private trackers I would like to seed indefinitely but for public trackers I would like to set a limit. There have been times where I forgot to manually pause a torrent on a private tracker for a day and boom there goes 800gb. lol.

If not I suppose I can just manually set the share ratio on every torrent but that's a little annoying. If there's a better way I would love to hear!

Windows / Re: Zero seeds and peers once again

At least the two clear cases that I can see from my torrents are regular http. There's only one tracker being contacted in both cases and the status is "Working". I have no problems uploading, I can connect just fine and upload as much as my bandwidth allows.

What I also was wondering is that when are the paused torrents scraped? qBt has been running for over 12 hours but they are still in "Not contacted" state so the amount of seeds shows zero.

Here's a good example:

This is what qBt shows for a common test torrent, a Knoppix image:


This is what the tracker list shows:


And this is what the truth is:


This is what I get for the same torrent with uTorrent v2.2.1, it's spot on:

1. Does these trackers in question happen to be HTTPS, udp, or regular HTTP trackers?

2. Are there multiple trackers for the failing torrents, and the dead trackers are the ones attempted?

Windows / Zero seeds and peers once again
« Last post by JVincent on September 22, 2018, 05:13:17 PM »
I know at least two trackers from which qBt somehow cannot get an accurate reading of seeds or peers. One tracker shows just zeroes for all torrents, the other one shows zeroes for many torrents and very low values for many others. I'm (again) trying to switch from uTorrent v2.2.1 to qBt but this problem bothers me every time. The thing is that I have lots of torrents waiting for download and I download them when my HD space allows and starting with torrents with the least amount of available seeds. uTorrent v2.2.1 gets the correct value every time and at some point in their v3 branch, it also began to have the issue.

So is it something to report to the libtorrent people or is it a qBt issue?

It's this one: https://github.com/qbittorrent/qBittorrent/issues/9547

There is a fixed build to test linked in that ticket, works for me at least.

Windows / Re: Avast blocked a connection to a URL
« Last post by Switeck on September 22, 2018, 03:45:02 PM »
A torrent can connect to an ip address (or ip address  range) supposedly used by a website when it either updates a tracker URL pointing to that ip address range or a seed/peer in that ip address range.

Where you got the .torrent file from has no bearing on what ip addresses qBitTorrent gets on tracker updates of that torrent for seeds/peers running the same torrent.

Seeds/peers on public torrents can also supply additional ips of other seeds/peers via DHT, LSD, and PEX.

Windows / PGP or Regular?

What is the difference between the plain version and PGP version?

Went to update the Windows 64bit version and was offered plain or with PGP.

Windows / Can't seed - 0%
« Last post by MandorSawall on September 22, 2018, 02:02:47 PM »
I have generated a torrent file out of one folder (three files)
I have uploaded it to piratebay.
It showed as 100% and seeding (set no share limit)
Sudenly it went to 0% and stalled.
I tried reconnecting changing folders and what not and can't get it to seed.

I copied the folder under different name, generated another torrent file, uploaded seeded and it went 0%-stalled again. Why can't I seed files?
